Issues

Restore funding to core public services

  • Health—fund health systems for all citizens of the state equitably and with sustainable revenue streams, ensuring access to quality medical care for rural and urban communities

  • State workers—increase wages to regional averages, accounting for position, qualification, and experience

 

Increased economic opportunity and equity

  • Better paying jobs for all citizens—raise the minimum wage to a living wage; raise wages for skilled, certified occupations to regionally competitive levels

  • Raise median household income to a level equivalent to our Gross Domestic Product

  • Improved infrastructure and education to bring business back to OK

  • Improved access to vocational training and higher education—raise the state contribution to public universities and vocational programs

Criminal Justice reform
