Despite severe weather in the Oklahoma City metro area, including a tornado, many concerned citizens attend the 100 Ideas Initiative for Oklahoma last Thursday evening. The meeting was held in Edmond at Westfield Elementary School where Speaker of the House Lance Cargill talked about the initiative and asked the attendees to be creative. The participants brainstormed in small groups and then presented their ideas, to the larger group, for a better Oklahoma through education. The Executive Director of the program, Thad Balkman, said the goal is to have the best 100 ideas put into book form and presented to the legislature.
The 100 Ideas Initiative is a nonpartisan project to solicit the best ideas for Oklahoma's second century. To learn more about the initiative, you can log onto the web page at
