Cara Cowan Watts - District 5 Seat 2
Dear Tulsa and Rogers County Cherokees,
The past seven and a half years have been incredible!
Rogers County Cherokees have grown together and found strength through regular public meetings and the formation of the Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA), construction of a community building, community partnerships with non-Cherokee entities, regular communication with me via meetings, weekly editorial columns provided to all local newspapers, an email listserv for District 5, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter as well as the creation of new jobs at Will Rogers Downs and the Cherokee Casino & Resort branded Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
We have new friends at the Victory Cherokee Organization in Collinsville and Tulsa Cherokee Community Organization. The joining of Tulsa and Rogers Counties forms the NEW District 5.
If you have any ideas for District 5 – Tulsa and Rogers Counties or the Cherokee Nation, please contact me.
If you do not have regular access to the Internet or a local newspaper, please call (918) 456-0671, ext. 3000, to hear details from me on the latest upcoming community meeting or event. I record a message with monthly event details for folks to listen at their convenience any time of day or day of the week.
I hope I have earned your vote on Saturday, June 25th, 2011 in order to continue our progress in building stronger Cherokee communities in Tulsa and Rogers Counties!
District 5 Seat 1 Councilman Buel Anglen (2007-2013), District 5 Seat 3 Council Candidate Lee Keener and I have already formed a strong team to serve the Cherokee Nation citizens and their families in Tulsa and Rogers Counties.
Lee and I are actively looking for opportunities to speak with community groups and individuals. Please let me know if you would like me to meet with your community group formally or informally.
