TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Firefighters believe they have found a way around Mayor Dewey Bartlett’s executive order prohibiting public employees from campaigning in city elections. They have enlisted retired firefighters, friends, family and out-of-town firefighters to campaign on their behalf.
“We don’t believe that we’re doing anything shady or out-of-line here. We’re simply just using citizens who still have the right to campaign,” Dennis Moseby, Firefighters Union President, said.
The mayor’s office disagrees. The mayor’s press secretary said the firefighters’ actions are against the spirit of the of the order.
