OKC Term Limits Now Announces Training Event

See also

Due to a large amount of interest, OKC Term Limits Now will be holding a training event on Thursday, December 12th, at H & H Shooting Sports Complex in Oklahoma City. While the laws governing how petitions are signed can be complex, a team of experts has been working through the details and will share what they have found. The actual process is not complicated – just very specific (including very odd sizes of paper!).

Conducting Thursday night’s training will be Linda Howard, of Premier Ballot access (formerly OK Ballot Access). Linda has been working on petitions as far back as 1989, starting with the A.C.T. petitions for Governor Henry Bellmon. Her career has spanned 50 petitions in 11 states, including more than half of them as a coordinator. She has had significant success in Oklahoma, with some of the fastest petitions to garner enough signatures as well as some of the highest signature counts.

OKC Term Limits Now is seeking to limit the terms of the Mayor and City Council to a maximum of two consecutive 4 year terms. In 2010 a State-wide ballot initiative passed with a 69.88% to 30.12% margin. This measure (State Question 747) changed the limit on the Governor to a lifetime limit of eight years, and added the same for Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Auditor and Inspector, State Treasurer, Labor Commissioner, Insurance Commissioner, and State Schools Superintendent. State Question 747 was a result of Senate Joint Resolution 12, authored by then State Senator Randy Brogdon and State Representative Jason Murphey.

Term limits for the Oklahoma Legislature were passed by a large margin in 1990. State Question 632 garnered a 67.25% to 32.74% majority. Legislators are restricted to 12 years in the Oklahoma Legislature, in total. Contrary to SJR 12, this measure was created via the statewide Initiative Petition process.
