Biggest problem facing Oklahoma City:

Cornett: Health care
Hunt: I see the myopic leaders of OKC doing everything they can to try and turn us into something we are not ” and at great cost to working people, to our firemen and policemen, and to the spirit of our city and state. If that isn’t a big problem, then I do not know what is.

Define the spirit of Oklahoma:

Cornett: A community with the courage to invest in the future and the foresight to plan decades into the future.
Hunt: We’ve overcome a lot, and I think in a situation now where we can take the lead on many things. Hoodlums on the coast have nearly run our country off a cliff ” we need to tell them to step aside and let some decent people run the show.
