Observercast

What We Could Have Paid For

on

Michelin’s recent announcement it is closing its manufacturing plant in Ardmore sent shockwaves through southern Oklahoma and the statehouse. The Senate quickly assembled a “select committee” to consider where Oklahoma’s gone wrong in its efforts to lure major economic expansions and investments and to keep major employees from skedaddling and leaving towns high-and-dry after cashing in on taxpayer generosity. For this week’s Observercast – What We Could Have Paid For – OKC Sen. Julia Kirt, a member of the special committee, joins us to unpack the economic development misfires and to suggest a better, more sustainable path forward for Oklahoma’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.
