The long-running battle between Mayor Dewey Bartlett and the Tulsa City Council continues unabated amid increasing signs that Tulsans are fed up.
Today's Tulsa World, for instance, includes two letters to the editor that slam the political hijinks being played out at City Hall.
Tulsa Lenice Stanford says it plainly: "I am tired of the bickering and wasting taxpayers' money for a 'fault-finding' venture that is sheer pettiness on steroids."
Another writer, L. D. Coats, names names: Councilors Jack Henderson, Roscoe Turner, Rick Westcott and John Eagleton. "Let's face it," Coats continues, "after 20 years the council has become addicted to its own power and wants more."
Coats also delivers a warning: "We can vote these pompous publicity hounds and political wannabes out of office this November."
We have no idea what Tulsa voters are likely to do in November, but we're quite sure we wouldn't want to face the voters with such a decidedly checkered record.
There's plenty of blame to go around, of course, and this includes Mayor Bartlett and his staff. Meanwhile, Tulsa voters face the prospect of more bickering, none of it good for the city.
