The Battle for MAPS3

The battle for the minds and hearts of Oklahoma City voters rages between the supporters of MAPS3 and its detractors. Every day we receive slick mailers from its supporters and now they've started with the automated phone calls. The detractors: not so much. Besides yard signs we've seen in the neighborhood, we've received a door hanger. The detractors are poor but scrappy.

It's really shaping up into a David and Goliath kind of story, with big corporate interests on the one side and public safety unions on the other. The closer we get to election day - this Tuesday - the tighter things will ratchet up. If nothing else, it'll be fun to see how it all plays out.
