Citizen Support Survey Deadline March 26

Google is planning to build and test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. They will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over one gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. It would potentially offer service to at least 500,000 Tulsans.

City of Tulsa is Looking for Citizens to Serve

The City of Tulsa has openings on several authorities, boards and commissions that are waiting for citizens to volunteer their services to the community. Mayor Dewey Bartlett and the City Council rely on these volunteer citizen groups for thoughtful advice to create policies and develop programs.

Individuals from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply to serve on these boards. Applicants for all Mayor-appointed positions must be Tulsa residents. Some boards have additional requirements.

Tear yourself away from basketball to enjoy some March madness at the Tulsa PAC

If you like your St. Patrick's Day celebrations to go into overtime, Kansas Citys The Elders will be here March 26 for some rousing Celtic music from the heartland. Irish drummer Ian Byrne and his five American bandmates, including TU grad Joe Miquelon, bring their amped-up roots rock, powerful vocals, blazing instrumentals and top-notch songwriting to the PAC courtesy of the Tulsa PAC Trust.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett

The 2010 Census form more than likely has arrived in mailboxes throughout the city. Why is it so important to be counted? The information will determine the amount of federal grant money the City of Tulsa will receive for the next 10 years and our state representation in Washington.

For every person who does not complete the Census form, the City of Tulsa loses $1,400 in federal grant funding. This affects the funding of our public schools, housing assistance, public safety grants, and road and bridge improvements. Tulsa will be competing with other cities for those federal tax dollars that can be used for roads, schools, hospitals, and more.

It only takes 10 minutes to fill out 10 easy questions. All of your information is kept confidential. In the 2000 Census, the city of Tulsa's response rate was 72 percent. The state of Oklahoma lost a seat in Congress because our population was undercounted. Beginning this week, citizens can visit the Census website for real-time Census participation rates for cities and towns. Let's do our civic duty and stand up and be counted.

Best regards,
Dewey Bartlett
Mayor of Tulsa
