I take this job very seriously and try to treat people equally. I also remain committed to improving the quality of life for all citizens of Pryor Creek, Oklahoma by establishing a community based on equality, financial stability and economic growth. This is very important to me as a citizen and as your Mayor.
Are you aware Cities receive no Ad valorem tax and we are the only State in the United States dependent on sales tax? Our budget is $6.3million dollars, emergency service without fire tax represents 53%, and balance is for parks, library, dog pound, cemetery, garage, community development and clerk / mayor office. We stretch every penny. This does not include golf, street or the recreation center as they cannot be used in the general fund accounts. In order to provide these services we must provide a decent wage and benefit package.
The infrastructure must be a priority as our buildings and streets will always be in need of repair. I challenge YOU the citizens to educate yourself on ways to enhance your hometown. I am here to help facilitate growth and improvement for generations to come. We can work together.
I am going to provide monthly update on sales tax collections, monthly budget reports along with any additional financial information.
