Where will most of Tulsa’s candidates for Mayor and City Council be on Tuesday evening, August 18?
They’ll be at The Fly trap Music Hall, perhaps having a beer, and certainly mingling with voters at Tulsa’s first-ever Beer Summit and Political Mixer co-sponsored by AM 740 and FM 102.3 News Talk , Tulsa’s Young Profesionals (ros), Urban Tulsa Weekly and Marshal Brewing Company.
Inspired by our President’s use of ‘beer diplomacy’ to settle disputes, the Beer Summit and Political Mixer will be a relaxed opportunity for voters to get to know the candidates for mayor and city council in an extremely informal seting.
No long-winded speeches. No posturing for a crowd. Just one-on-one conversations over a “cold one” about the issues and challenges facing Tulsa at the end of the first decade of the 21st century. “With such a large field of candidates, especially for mayor, we think it’s important for as many voters as possible to get to meet as many candidates face-to-face as possible, to shake their hands, look them straight in the eye and get answers to the questions most important to them,” says News Director Dan Poter. “We partnered with Tulsa’s Young Profesionals and Urban Tulsa Weekly and decided to hold the ‘summit’ at The Fly trap Music Hall to make the event friendly to younger voters as well as anyone planning to participate in this year’s critical election.”
The event will take place at 2nd and Greenwood, downtown Tulsa from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
