Yesterday I stumbled upon the South Tulsa Citizens Coalition’s new website. What I find interesting is this statement on the main page
This group had its roots in the "Move That Bridge" organization (link at right) that was started to educate everyone on the problems associated with the proposed bridge over the Arkansas River at Yale Avenue… We organized under the banner above so that we could not only continue to deal with the bridge issue but also to give the citizens of South Tulsa a sense of unity and a voice - a very loud voice - that could no longer be ignored by our local governments or our local newspaper… The STCC will continue to fight for the rights of citizens of South Tulsa as well as all others. We believe that fair government is the right of everyone; and that special interests should not dictate the future of our city.Clearly, bridge or no bridge, STCC is not going to go away. So get out our scorecards and chalk up one more citizens group created in the last few years because the powers that be have failed to listen, or because the Good Ol’ Boy Network has screwed some segment of the population. Thanks good ol’ boys, your shenanigans are waking the people of Tulsa. Active and aware citizens will untimely lead to your downfall.
