Tulsa, OK – In its April issue of County News, the National Association of Counties recognized Tulsa County's website as one of only seven among county websites in the U.S. that achieved a perfect score for transparency. Tulsa County was recently awarded the annual Sunny Award by Sunshine Review.
"Sunny Award winners are recognized for making information available to citizens and for setting a transparency standard that all governments can and should meet," said Mike Barnhart, president of Sunshine Review.
Tulsa, OK – Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris is sending an email to Tulsa area lawmakers in Oklahoma City. He is telling them that continued cuts to his and other district attorney offices across the state will put public safety in jeopardy.
Harris says the constitution is clear, "public safety is our number one priority". Harris says his office is facing a 16-percent budget cut and that will undermine prosecution efforts.
