Vote for Commissioner Anthony

The Tulsa Beacon - May 30, 2012

Commissioner Bob Anthony has been serving the people of Oklahoma faithfully for more than 23 yeas on the Corporation Commission.

The Corporation Commission has perhaps the most technical job of any elected position in the state.  It is charged with overseeing complex business enterprises including oil and gas production -- a big part of the state's economy.

Anthony was cited by the FBI for his willingness to uncover corruption and bribery in the Corporation Commission serveral years ago,.  Instead of bowing to powerful business interests, Anthony stood independently and represented the best interests of the people of Oklahoma.  That's one of the reasons Anthony has set records for the sheer number of statewide votes (and votes in Tulsa County).

Tulsans may remember Anthony and the family-owned business he ran for several years -- Anthony Clothing Stores.  At one time, it was the largest Oklahoma-based company in the state.

Anthony faces fellow Republican Brooks Mitchell in the June 26 GOP primary.  It is the only statewide race in 2012 (no U.S. senators are up and there is no gubernatorial race) and the winner gains the seat because no Democrat filed.

America's oil and gas industry is under assault by the Obama Administration and Oklahoma needs a strong voice of reason to make the case for energy independence for America.  Oil, gas and coal are important parts of that puzzle and Anthony understands that and is effective at promoting safe and clean energy.

Even though many incumbents deserve to be sent home, Anthony has proven he deserves another term.

The Tulsa Beacon endorses Bob Anthony for Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner.
