If you are like me, you’ve been in a ballot box reading the state questions, looking at the names of judges or county commissioners, and wondering how in the world you should vote. Let’s not be confused on election day this year! You hear from me every week about the budget being a moral document and our need to focus on getting state legislators to fund priorities like schools, mental health, safe communities, and so much more. Oklahoma is depending on you to vote and vote well!
