Bates on your side


  1. Using the position of County Commissioner to take back control of University and Children’s Hospitals from the three billionaires who now own/control them
  2. Supporting the community health centers, including the new one that is being located in the old Truman School (where Bates taught in 1971-73)
  3. Helping all local schools by providing technical assistance and labor
  4. Fighting the local effects of globalization by pushing agriculture and the arts in our local schools
  5. Providing free tutors for students on Sunday afternoons/evenings
  6. Supporting mass transit within Oklahoma County – including utilization of existing tracks
  7. Increase availability of medical services to all citizens of Oklahoma County
  8. Making interpreters available to persons conducting county business, including sign languages and other languages (Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) commonly spoken in Oklahoma County
  9. Increasing tornado preparedness throughout Oklahoma County. Providing storm shelters around the District and providing information on how to find a storm shelter.
  10. Studying the impact of the fiscal irresponsibilities related to the current war in Iraq on the citizens of Oklahoma County.
  11. Developing a diesel production unit for Oklahoma County that will make fuel out of sunflower seeds, like Willie Nelson has done in Texas. This will save Oklahoma County money on fuel, reduce dependency on foreign oil, and give local people a way to make a little extra money
  12. Using the profits from our bio-diesel operation to subsidize the bus service to Midwest City and Del City until we get light rail
