Councilor Makes Final Push For Tuesday's Vision Tulsa Vote

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Three days -- that's how much time city leaders have left to campaign for Vision Tulsa.

“We're just encouraging people to get out and vote on Tuesday," city councilor Phil Lakin said.

Lakin, the District 8 councilor, spent his Saturday spreading the word about Tuesday’s upcoming Vision vote.

“I’m just doing my part in helping people to understand what the vote is about and to go out and vote on April 5, hopefully, yes,” Lakin said.

Lakin and the other volunteers plan to hang one of these information cards on every door in Tulsa by Tuesday.

So far, they've gotten a positive response, but those positive voters need to actually show up.

“Tulsa was built on people who have said yes,” Lakin said. “They said yes when they were building the Art Deco buildings downtown. We collectively said yes when we built the BOK Center, and hopefully we'll continue to say yes and we continue to invest in this town."

The renewal plan won't raise taxes, but it will keep the current tax in place.

The plan would fund a wide range of projects under these three initiatives: public safety, streets and transportation and economic development that would focus on putting dams in the river.

It's a plan that's taken a long time to perfect, and supporters say they want to make sure they do their part to get it done.

“We have to finish strong,” Lakin said. “We've been working on this for two-and-a half years, and it's not the time right now to sit back and wait and just let people do whatever they're going to do. We have to encourage people to vote."

Even if it takes one door at a time, he said.
