TCRyan, 10/12/2012 - 7:08am "@Golden_Ace21 We do own the property but if we were good landlords we would be charging the private corporations who occupy the buildings adequate rent that reflects the market value. Besides the fact that these private companies pay little (as low as $1 Dollar a year!!) to NO rent for the space, the lease they signed clearly states that the tenant, not Tulsa County taxpayers, are responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the buildings. Furthermore, something like $135 MILLION would go towards equipment and training for American Airlines.
Now we have Don Walker, vice-chair for the pro-Vision2 folks, saying things like - "Were it not for the potential of job loss, I would never recommend that we borrow this money to renovate and repair the facilities, but we have to do it now," Sure sounds like a bailout to me. Even using the same type of emotional blackmail used to pass the bailouts on the federal level. Vision2 is too rushed. We don't know enough about these proposals to allow them to pass. Vote NO. www.Facebook.com/StopVision2"
