Oklahoma Definitely Deserves Better

January 31, 2017

Shortly before the November election, a group called Oklahoma Deserves better appeared out of nowhere and threw nearly $900,000 into a campaign against SQ 779, the penny sales tax. Right after election, they pretty much vanished. Their website isn’t even around anymore. The magic of the Internet preserves some of their work, however.


As you remember, SQ 779 failed. While several legislators have proposed bills to increase teacher pay, there’s still the little mystery of how the state will fund it.

Fortunately, you can peruse the list of donors who contributed this money (all between October 1 and December 31 of 2016). If you know any of these people (or work for any of the companies that contributed), maybe you can ask them about that better plan. I’d love to hear it.

    Sandridge was on the verge of bankruptcy last year, but they still coughed up 10K to squash the hope of Oklahoma teachers.

    Isn’t that Robert Ross the State Board of Education member?

    OKC Chamber wow. I don’t think I should use any of these business. I am shocked. I can see how much they think about education.
