Halfway there, and Yes leads by over 5,000. It's looking good.

It's not a further from downtown kind of thing, it's a north v. south kind of thing. The southside has always felt detached from downtown and the rest of the city. If you're on Memorial Road you probably go to Thunder games and eat in Bricktown a lot more than someone who lives off of SW 134th, equal distance out.

Really? Eh I guess I believe it, I do feel like we're different from our neighbors. We don't frequent Bricktown that much (but are there for Thunder games of course), but still, its that detachment you are alluding to, for whatever reason. The "well I don't go down there so why should I care attitude". Its about the community, the way I see it, no matter where in the metro you live or how often you go downtown. I really just don't understand the dissidence.

Looks like 57Y - 43N over half reporting go go go!!!!! I feel like I'm watching a sporting event, wish I was at the watch party ;-)

Is this for real? 35,000 votes so far and more than halfway home? Talk about apathy. But I live in Grady county so I am cant vote for it, but I do lots of shopping in $$$ spending in OKC.

yeah, it looks like congrats are in order for the Yes side.. While I'm disappointed, I'd hope that the people critical of the No side will be as critical of the City council in the upcoming months in regards to how this money is actually used..

Looking really, really good...

Once again, the great citizens of Oklahoma City have chosen to invest in their community and that willingness is why OKC continues to be a model for other cities.

I think this is based on old info. I don't think there is much of a difference in far NW OKC and Far SW OKC as far as that goes.

I live on SW 137th, just off of 134th. We frequent Bricktown, Downtown, Thunder games, events at Ford Center, Civic Center quite a lot.

What is our winning streak now in voter-approved community improvements?

1. MAPS I
2. MAPS for Kids (II)
3. GM Plant Purchase (general revenue bonds; although this was OK County not just OKC)
4. Ford Center Improvements
5. MAPS III

Did I miss anything?

Quite an impressive run. I wonder if there other cities that compare favorably?

No need to be disappointed. Your side took a message to the people. They heard it, and they made their choice with full knowledge of it. You made someimpact, considering the lower spread here than the last time, and fer cryin' out loud, the last one was for making nice at a b-ball arena in a football bastion.

NTM made headway. Not as much as you wanted obviously. But headway all the same.

Perhaps the manner of presenting the message may come back to bite the NTM position on the arse in the months to come, but perhaps not. Many voters have passion, but not always the longest of memories. And after all, pre the NTM advocacy, the F & P in OKC had fairly positive reviews by city folks.

Some damage, probably. beyond repair damage? very doubtful.

Peace out to both sides. Granddaughter needs hugging!

yeah, getting things like
"your *f*ing union ass can suck it".. along those lines.. even though I've been critical of the union stance...

There's a few who didn't actually use the F word or curse at me, but for the most part I've been associated with the PD and FD unions.. Even though I've maintained throughout this whole deal that I couldn't give a rat's ass about the Union stance..


oh well..

Apparently I'm also a liar and a supporter of Shannon..

I think that the remaining 25% is going to have to be at least a 2/3rd majority no in order for it to jeopardize the strong lead that's been built up. Even though the overall vote tally is going up, and the lead percentage is shrinking, numerically it's hovering around a 5,000 vote lead.

I guess I don't know why they would either, but I'm assuming those will be the areas with "no" or 50/50 precincts. It'll be interesting to see a precinct map when all is said and done.
