A preliminary determination by Oklahoma City Clerk Frances Kersey has found there does not appear to be enough legal signatures on a recent petition regarding a local income tax to increase education funding to trigger a public vote. The petition was filed Nov. 9. Kersey, Municipal Counselor Kenneth Jordan and their staff reviewed the signatures, and Kersey reached her preliminary determination Monday.
The Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, Jonathan Small, Trent England and Dave Bond have filed a protest of the petition. The City Clerk will consider the protest in a hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.
