Heywood Sanders, professor, author, activist and the nation’s preeminent authority on convention centers will speak on the issues facing OKC. Give us 90 minutes and we will explain the significant risks associated with massive public subsidies, if not complete public ownership of a $200 million convention center hotel.
Mr. Sanders will explain his recent statement that “OKC is highly unusual, if not unique, in the lack of transparency and the absence of public information on the proposed convention center and convention center hotel.”
A publicly owned or largely publicly financed convention center hotel would compete against our existing downtown hotel stock and we invite you to OKC’s largest locally owned downtown hotel.
Bring your questions. Refreshments provided. Free to the public. Free parking. No taxpayer dollars used in financing the event.
