Patrick McGuigan of www.capitolbeatok.com just published an interesting story we're sure you'll want to know about. His latest piece focuses on high prices within the state government. And, as you'll read, many of those high salaries come from the area of higher education. AFP-Oklahoma's Stuart Jolly was interviewed for the story and shares his thoughts on the situation.
With the start of school just around the corner, or in the case of the Oklahoma City school district, just started, what better time to talk about education than now?
Thats exactly what Americans for Prosperity-Oklahoma did on Friday, bringing the topics of education and school choice to the good people of the state at the weekly meeting of the High Noon Club.
Those two entities hosted the event, an initiative of the Foundation for Educational Choice, to celebrate the 99th birthday of school choice advocate, the late Dr. Milton Friedman. He devoted his life to the push for freedom of choice in education and allowing free-market principles to improve the educational market.
We have an exciting event coming up this week that will be both educational and insightful!
At Noon on Friday, Aug. 5th, 2011, Americans for Prosperity-Oklahoma, the High Noon Club, and The Foundation for Educational Choice will join together to honor the legacy of Dr. Milton Friedman in a very special event, Restore Hope Oklahoma: Ensuring a Better Education for Tomorrows Students. Friedman, the influential school-choice advocate, would have turned 99 years old this year and we can think of no better way of honoring his legacy than to take the topic of education reform and analyze how this important topic is impacting Oklahoma.
Wed love for you to join us! Here are the details:
What: 2011 Restore Hope Oklahoma Ensuring a Better Education for Tomorrows Students
Thursday evening, Americans for Prosperity-Oklahoma traveled up to the beautiful city of Enid to engage with activists from northern Oklahoma.
AFP-Oklahoma was graciously hosted by the Sons and Daughters of Liberty, a group of concerned patriots with a mission of restoring a Constitutional Republic and a return to the Judeo-Christian values of our nations founding.
In front of 40 concerned citizens, State Director Stuart Jolly spoke to the group, focusing his remarks on what it means to have Liberty and Prosperity in this country. He compared and contrasted free nations with nations under harsh rule and showed stats that reminded us all how lucky we are to be in a free nation such as the United States. He also updated those in attendance on what AFP has been accomplishing in Oklahoma so far in 2011.
Those in attendance were lively, asking questions and making statements about the concern this nation is headed.
Americans for Prosperity-Oklahoma is coming to Enid tomorrow, July 28th.
We are pleased to announce that State Director Stuart Jolly will appear at the July meeting of the Sons and Daughters of Liberty at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Enid YWCA (525 S. Quincy).
If you're in that part of the state, come on out, as Jolly will speak to the group and give an update on the goings-on of AFP-Oklahoma this summer. We hope to see you there!
