Observercast 39: Changing The County Guard


If the last six months proved anything, it’s that “all politics is local” is no cliche in Oklahoma. Think how city governments acted boldly to curb the pandemic – imposing mask mandates – while the governor fiddled. Or how the rightwing majority on the Oklahoma County Commission bungled the spending of $42 million in federal emergency CARES Act relief.

In today’s Observercast, the second in our series of pre-election conversations with Democratic challengers, 2nd District Oklahoma County Commission candidate Spencer Hicks dissects the recent shenanigans by county leaders and offers a dramatically different blueprint for county government’s future.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
