I received the following email from Republican State Rep, Fred Perry.
Dear Fellow Republicans: As you know, the election for Tulsa Mayor is scheduled for Tuesday, April 4th. The election is important to everyone in the Tulsa Metro area. So, even if you live outside the city limits, I hope you will read this.
I am supporting our Republican incumbent Mayor, Bill LaFortune. I know that many people are not completely satisfied with Bill. I have talked to a some Republicans who are unhappy with him. Many receiving this email know Bill personally. I have gotten to know Bill well since the 1990's when he was the Tulsa District Attorney and we worked together to get some victims' rights legislation passed. He is a good man with a good heart. I believe he will be a good mayor in his second term. He is a hard worker, dedicated to making Tulsa a better place to live for us, our children and grand children.
While at the capitol, I have gotten to know Kathy Taylor, his opponent in the election. Like many people in public life, she is a pleasant person to talk to. She has a number of positive attributes. However, she is a part of the Henry administration which has brought us unprecedented casino gambling and the lottery. Much of our crime increase is due to the increase in gambling. Mrs. Taylor is also very close to Susan Savage, now Secretary of State, who was appointed by Gov. Brad Henry. Ms. Savage pushed the Henry gambling agenda. No doubt Kathy Taylor will rely on Tulsa former mayor Susan Savage for advice in governing the city.
Bill's political beliefs and value system are much more compatible with we Republicans than are his opponent's. I hope you will VOTE for Bill LaFortune in the election of April 4th. For more information about Bill and his campaign and record, visit www.mayorlafortune.org
