    I do think that many people, when they think of downtown Edmond, they're picturing the few blocks right along Broadway north of 2nd, and not the larger downtown district, or the spaces that aren't right ON Broadway. Or they're picturing a free standing hotel that would take up an entire block downtown.

    The fact that has as many positive reactions as it does is appalling.

    Jbkrems - did you see your dream city of BA is in the news for using Holocaust footage as part of anti-mask presentation? If they weren’t already an embarrassment, they soon will be.

    I heard about that, but you have mischaracterized what happened. From what I understand, one of BA's citizens, Ms. Lori Gracey, used Holocaust footage in HER PERSONAL presentation, against mask mandates. She was not making this presentation on behalf of the City of Broken Arrow, but she was using this footage as part of her presentation as a private citizen. The City and the Chamber of Commerce of Broken Arrow have both disavowed this. Of course, when someone makes public comment in any of these meetings, it is wrong to directly associate it to say the views of the private citizen are not the same as the position of the City or of the Chamber of Commerce. However, Ms. Gracey has a right to her opinion, as bizarre as it may or may not be. Doesn't mean something is wrong with the City of Broken Arrow or its Chamber of Commerce.

    Normal private citizens can speak at city council meetings with the assistance of video presentations? I've watched a lot of OKC city council meeting streams and followed along with live-tweets of even more than that and I have never seen or seen mention of a random private citizen making that kind of presentation.

    Does Broken Arrow really allow that for anyone who wants to speak? And nobody vets the presentations ahead of time? Seems pretty weird and hard to believe.

    Also, the city council at least did not disavow it: City Of Broken Arrow Declines To Condemn Use Of Holocaust Imagery At Council Meeting

    Edmond Re: Edmond City Council 2021 Elections

    Hi Jerry. I haven't been on OKC Talk in a very long time, so I just recently came across this thread. Mr. Davis and I live in the same neighborhood and have known each other for several years, but he did not make an endorsement in the Ward 3 council race, which I definitely understand.

    Hopefully one of our volunteers or I have knocked on your door since Christmas. If not, you can check out my website https://boydforedmond.com. I'd appreciate your consideration on Feb. 9.

    Uhg - Not real thrilled with the election results last night. The anti-science crowd seemed to really have their way - I'm sure the antivaxxers and covidiots are celebrating, but I'm hoping in the general we can kick Janis and Peterson to the curb.

    I'll be pushing hard for Mugg on Ward 3 because she at least understands that a mask mandate is not overreach, and her focus is stuff like infrastructure and business development; as opposed to Janis who seems to be about "conservative values", fighting the left (someone should tell them the council is non-partisan), fighting mask mandates and covid restrictions, and protecting the police. Oh, and bitching about water rates. Basically, everyone's annoying NIMBY neighbor.

    Ugh, doesnt sound good so far. Edmond is weird though, in that now in the general election, the whole city votes on each wards race. Not sure that changes anything but its not going to be good to have anti-masker anti-growth councilors. Anti-mask is actually bad for business. Janis says shes against overreach and restrictions but I bet she would sure overreach and restrict if an apartment complex tried to get built.

    Of course Edmond doesn’t want to vote for a candidate that focuses on infrastructure. These same dumbasses who vote against candidates that want to improve our infrastructure will complain about traffic.

    ^^ the problem is that by and large, Edmond didn't vote for anything yesterday. The voter turnout was in the hundreds. This weather really killed turnout, and this election wasn't heavily promoted.

    Mask mandate extended. Hopefully this doesn’t fuel the anti maskers to sway the election:
