When I started at Oklahoma Watchdog in January of 2011, my vision was “to shine a light on what is going on in Oklahoma government so that we can improve it.” I’d like to think that over the past 18-months I’ve been able to let people see more of what their tax dollars are paying for and understand a little bit more about the system that spends their money.

There is only one force in the nation that can be depended upon to keep the government pure and the governors honest, and that is the people themselves. They alone, if well informed, are capable of preventing the corruption of power, and of restoring the nation to its rightful course if it should go astray.
Oklahoma Watchdog will continue its mission of informing the public and exposing any corruption of power. But today is my last day contributing to the site.
Thank you for reading my stories. And thank you even more for being interested in how your government is working.
