TULSA, OK – Tulsa Republican and local small businessman, Skip Steele has announced his candidacy for Tulsa City Council District Six. Steele has been active within the Tulsa community for over 35 years. Steele has a business degree from John F. Kennedy College, is the owner of All Hours Computers, and attends Boston Avenue Methodist Church.
Steele has the executive experience and drive to bring a business friendly approach to the City Council. Steele sees the opportunity for growth in East Tulsa and has the motivation and leadership skills required to work within the council and alongside community developers to improve the quality of life for east Tulsans.
“I have made the decision to run for this seat because I believe there is economic potential in East Tulsa that is not receiving the encouragement or representation it deserves. The climate in East Tulsa is ripe for attracting new businesses and development and we need strong leadership for District Six to help foster those relationships and advocate on behalf of the people,” Steele stated.
“There are also public safety concerns in District Six that need to be addressed. Addressing these issues will, in the long-term, contribute to a healthier economy by making Tulsa a safer place for families and businesses.” Steele continued, “I am running to focus on long-term growth and solutions rather than temporary fixes. If elected, I will be an advocate for all of the people of District Six. One of the best way to be a true advocate of the people is to promote transparency in government. My goals to grow and protect East Tulsa will need to be a community effort, which is why I will encourage community interaction through regularly scheduled town hall meetings. I believe it is important to engage the community to better represent their needs on the city council.”
Under the non-partisan rules for Tulsa municipal elections, the election for District Six will take place on June 28, 2016 unless only two candidates file then the election will go to a November 8th ballot. You can find more information about the candidates on FortySix News 2016 Elections page.
