"Meet Laura Boyd" was first aired on Sunday October 6th 2002. Our Guest was Laura Boyd, Democratic Candidate for Lt. Governor.
Our topics included:
- Meet the Democratic candidate for the office of Lt. Governor.
- What is Excellence in Education Initiative and what would it accomplish?
- Discuss what she means by satisfaction and nearsightedness in her quote from her website: "From the Lt. Governor we need action, not satisfaction; we need vision, not nearsightedness."
- What is the Office of Senior Citizen Services, what would it do and how would it be staffed and funded?
- Discuss the Accountability Board for Senior Policy, its membership, how it is enforced and how it is funded?
- Discuss tourism, keeping State Parks open and maintained, how she feels Lt. Governor Fallin has "dropped the ball"; what she would do differently; is the Legislature to blame; and what should we do with the State Lodges?
- Discuss the State debt and, as a member of the House for most of the six years that the contractual obligations and lease purchase debt has increased ten-fold, did she propose legislation to stop this or change this and what should be done?
