Higher Education Chancellor, QuikTrip Thefts, Cherokee Congressional Delegation & More

Aug 23, 2019

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and sitting in for Ryan Kiesel is ACLU Oklahoma Director of Policy and Advocacy Nicole McAfee. They discuss the call by Governor Stitt to remove Glen Johnson as Higher Education Chancellor, a claim by QuikTrip of an increase in property thefts since State Question 780 was passed by voters and the Cherokee Tribe pointing to a nearly 200 year old treaty in calling for representation in Congress.

The trio also discusses a survey of school districts showing nearly 600 vacancies for the new school year and the Oklahoma County Jail Trust removes the sheriff from daily operations to opt instead for an administrator.
