Connecting with City Hall

Posted: Updated:

It can be an imposing site, city hall. With the thought of navigating it, even more imposing. But there was nothing imposing about the gathering in the small conference room at the Marriott.

"Well, it's important to know what your city government's doing," said Tulsa city councilor Jeannie Cue, holding a meeting for members of her district to connect with members of her district.

"This is the first one I've ever come to," said District 2 resident Jo Lambert.

And tonight, she learned from the officers who also attended, that crime in District 2 is down substantially so far this year compared to last, with assaults dropping from 66 to 31. There is also one less location selling drugs.

"Someone knocked on my door and wanted to purchase drugs," said councilor Cue.

Not her door, but one of her constituents. Who then called councilor Cue and told her that the drug buyers then proceeded to the house across the street.

"I immediately emailed Major Brooks at the Riverside division, within a week, the senior citizen called me back and said the two neighbors had been arrested," said Cue.

And just like that, problem solved.

"It's all about partnership and collaboration, working together, sharing information, and trying to make our city the best place that it can possibly be to live in," said TPD Sgt. Mark MacKenzie.

Putting government to work, through closer community relationships.

"They explained a lot of things that I didn't really know about," said Lambert.

"They need to know what's happening at city hall, why we make decisions we do, and if they don't like those decisions, I want to know that also," said Cue.
