Areas of Focus
Within District 1, Stan is focused on public safety and improving Tulsa County’s roads and bridges while also focusing on economic development and revitalization. Tulsa County is modernizing its approach to road maintenance and improving the quality and efficiency of the projects throughout the county and has finished a road pavement index for the entire county road system, which will allow the County to prioritize projects. Stan is also focused on identifying which road maintenance elements can be subcontracted, such as mowing the right of ways, to help provide taxpayers with a better result for less expense.
