Phil led efforts on Tulsa’s three latest capital packages, all approved overwhelmingly by voters: Improve Our Tulsa, Vision Tulsa, and Improve Our Tulsa 2. Collectively, these packages dedicated $1.2 billion to streets and transportation - four times more than what was invested in the previous 32 years, on an annual basis.
Phil supported permanent funding for 160 additional police officers and 65 firefighters, to keep our families safe, and to invest in visionary projects to build a dam and lake in south Tulsa, create a brand new Gilcrease Museum, add fighter jet simulators to our Air National Guard base, and build the dynamic Discovery Center Children’s Museum.
To keep Tulsa beautiful, Lakin created and funded crews who have collected thousands of tons of trash from our roads. Through the renewed PSO franchise, Phil led efforts to beautify our city by dedicating over $70 million to bury ugly power lines, increase mowing cycles for medians, and maintain highway lighting.Back to List
