Tulsa Is Looking For A New Sheriff

Interviews Being Held This Friday Night

Public Is Invited To Help Vet The Candidates

  Tulsa went too long with the disgraced former sheriff. Eventually, a grand jury drove him from office and indicted him on misdemeanor complaints.
  Now we begin the careful process of selecting a new lawman to lead this county, and keep it safe and free. The citizens only get to select one peace officer so we best get it right this time.
  This Friday night the Tulsa County Republican Mens' Club is hosting a special public meeting and inviting the Republican candidates to come interview with the voters and get their trust and support. Three local journalists (including myself) will come with a prepared list of open questions for all the candidates to weigh in on. But the emcee would also like your input. Write your question on an index card and present it at the event. But make sure the question is applicable to all the candidates and not specific to just one or a few of them.

Here are some of the candidates
John Fitzpatrick

Dan Miller

Jim Rice
Luke Sherman
Jason Jackson
Vic Regalato
Erich Richter

Expect questions about:
  • The jail operations
  • Deputies and policies
  • Candidate background
  • Department budgets and bond issues
  • Future of the department
  • Redesigning the department

  The primary election is still several months away and we may see a significant change in the political landscape before we go to the polls. But the process starts now and the event is at Brookside Baptist Church (36th & Peoria). Doors open at 6pm.
