Mick Cornett, Republican Mayor of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, spoke with National Public Radio Jan. 19 about the great success that OKC is having in the midst of an otherwise dismal situation among most other US cities.
He cites self-imposed and limited tax increases, infrastructure investment, ensuring that adequate services are available and that amenities beyond the basics are addressed.
These investments are what create the quality of life that is driving OKC’s ability to attract creative, entrepreneurial people to their city.
Mick Cornett may be the only Republican alive today that understands that investment in our future is not only necessary, it is desirable.
Listen for yourself.
