I remember Remind 11 year old You know what they look like. Oh, I wasn't doing that yet. Oh, you weren't? No. When I got started, there was just just nothing. Oh, you could do it all day.

"Newsradio one thousand when Faulkner Liberte seventy one degrees in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma county Commissioner Brian mine is my guest. He was first elected in two thousand eight reelected again in twenty twelve with seventy five percent of the vote, and then automatically reelected to a third term in twenty sixteen as the only county official who did not draw an opponent. He joins me this evening. Because a few weeks ago, I had him on, and we talked about some ideas of how to reorganize the funding of the Oklahoma county jail. And I must tell you Commissioner on I actually got some phone calls after that interview of people that wanted copies of that interview, as you know, I no longer have a podcast. So if someone wants to tape our interview, they can take our interview, but other than that, it's just you and me live right now. How are you this evening? Well good night. I appreciate you having me on here. Thank you very much. Tell me what's going on with the county jail. Well, this is very exciting. Historic week. I actually think that we're getting very close to proving trust. It will be on our agenda Wednesday. It doesn't mean it will be finally approved, but I think that the sentiment from public accounts of the three commissioners, that I've read I believe we are nearing a decision and I'm pretty excited about what that means for Oklahoma county, you know, pretty much the community leadership throughout our county is said, if we're going to have a new jail, or any kind of new facility at all that requires public financing that we would have to have some sort of a citizen oversight to that, whatever that make up would look like and they really wanted to see it over the existing structure before we even move forward with any concept of a new one, and that might seem simple, we'll just make that. But there's actually very convoluted legal requirements that have to be all put in contractual agreements and how that is made up, though. The law, prescribes the make up by statute. There are more than one option to pursue as far as how that would alternate look at what I think, is going to be really seriously entertained, this Wednesday is what will turn out to be a nine member board to people are elected the other seven our citizens, and the law actually stipulates that they must not be elected, so it would eliminate others, like judges, or state representatives, or city council members might have background, but nevertheless, would be prohibited from serving the only two elected officials who could be on there would be the sheriff, and then one of the three commissioners, which would be chosen by the board of county commissioners as to which one would serve, and we must remind everyone the reason you're kind of saying what you think is, as I understand. It county commissioners can never meet other than in the official meeting. Correct. That's right. Not pre pre-state. You give me an opportunity to explain because people ask me all the time. Well, how do you think about your two new commissioners, both of whom rounded out the commission by starting in January? I'm the tenured member. And I don't really know because we don't get the chance to visit other than when we're in a public meeting, we can wave at each other and say Hello in the hallway but we're not really supposed to talk talk, especially anything related to county business. So to make sure we don't have any kind of any impropriety or the accusation of we just avoid each other generally all together in public. So that's why I don't know, for sure. And we have to put it on the agenda. It's been placed on the agenda and we'll see what happens on Wednesday. Do you all stream those meetings, they are all on YouTube, the Oklahoma county channel broadcast, not only the Commissioner meetings of the budget for meetings and all the subcommittee meetings for each of the different departments that have different committee meetings. So there's probably more than enough. Meeting watching there for anyone in their lifetime, there live. They are live, and then they're also preserved forever on their preserved. So anyone that would like what time is that meeting that people could watch nine o'clock? You also can go directly to the county website, Oklahoma county dot org. And there's a livestream there's well. Dot org. Okay. What might be other things that you will address this Wednesday? I expect this is going to be kind of a long meeting, but we have been discussing this for years, these two, new commissioners, are, obviously brand new to the conversation being that they just joined the office in January, but even previous commissioners has long before I ever served on the commission. This actually was the recommendation of the first citizen jail committee, which was convened twenty four years ago, in every subsequent jail committee, that came forward from that there is some argument about whether or not there were seven or eight, but either way, all of them concluded in their final report that jail. Trust was really something. They felt was necessary now I wanna be clear that doesn't have a reflection on the officers or the law enforcement that are working inside the jailers, many, great people. They're doing a hard job and oftentimes for little pay it's just about citizen oversight transparent. And accountability. That's a lot of money, it constitutes almost half of the entire general fund. And so we really need to, you know, just have complete transparency governor working on doing a better job of that at the state level. It's really become incumbent upon us about, you know, choosing to make discretionary expenditures here or there at the sacrifices some essential need is a lot to put on any one person. I dare say, no one would even probably trust their grandparents, or their parent with that much as forty in never say, well, maybe they could be second guessed. So what I like about a nine member board that requires five to get something done in terms of these budget questions. And I think what you'll find is that it will pretty much have to meet the smell test to pass five noses. And so I'm looking forward to having that opportunity to get that for further examined, and I believe that will build. Confidence and bolster trust with the community. And I think we will then see a spirit of cooperation from the corporate community that filling, rob community, the community nonprofit leaderships that we work in conjunction with the jail services. I think all of them will be really on board with trying to help us get a long-term permanent solution to our jail issues a little bit of confusion because I think people think that the budget board is already serving in this advisory capacity. Is it not whenever they give the sheriff, the money, there's very little recourse, the budget board has to do, so you cannot, like, for instance, litigated down to the ordering of toilet paper or hand sanitizer. Once the budget is given in its, you know, supposed to go for that. It's more or less up to the sheriff about how it is spent indiscretion except for things that are contracted, like maybe vendor services or major contracts. Provide psychiatric or healthcare to inmates, those things would be voted on by the board of commissioners, but otherwise wants to share for Caesar funding how they make up the staff to raise the salaries that give it's all pretty much to one sheriff's discretion. And again, this isn't any reflection on share of Taylor as far as that goes. But it does create concern across the community about the transparency and having citizen oversight. They want something very similar as to what we've seen with maps, which is generally regarded, why maps has been successful sheriff Taylor this morning. It was discussed on flashpoint and they showed a news report that they had done earlier. And sheriff Taylor seemed to be very critical of the commissioners, and very critical of having a trust. You know, I have a working relationship, we've disagreed on some issues as one might expect at just happens in the nature of politics. I don't think he has the same report with all of the elected officials, but he and I get along. Okay. I think he's, you know, obviously feeling the heat from these discussions because he's the natural person that the microscopes focused on, but this has been an ice stress a long serving issue, and it goes back to their original recommendation of the first committee, twenty four years ago, which far exceeds precedes, rather, his ten years sheriff, he's only been in office for two years. This is just something that I would say is broken and needs to be fixed. We've had many issues that result in litigation. We're in facing federal lawsuits, all the time and often a defensive ours would be strengthened by saying, we had this kind of oversight in place. It becomes exhibit A when. Never the plaintiffs try to nail on a particular point. Will who else knows what else do they know we don't have a defense to that without saying, we had this kind of oversight. Take a break when we come back, I want to ask you many times members of boards become legally responsible when, in those lawsuits, and things like that. So Commissioner Brian is my guest. He is the commission for district two and has been serving in that capacity since two thousand eight we will talk with him more about what's going to happen to the jail. Plus, he wants to invite you to a special event. He's happening for Oklahoma City citizens. So we'll do all that when we come back, also, let me remind you, you need to check your favorite TV station. Website if you will because most things have announced that they are closing tomorrow, all the public schools in the area and other businesses and services. So please go to KFOR. Cruises up their game. If you're thinking about maybe a romantic night, or maybe go.

Some rain to the west and north skirting to the north part of Kingfisher and Oklahoma county in the next couple of hours bills up for joining us from twenty four seven news on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay. And Bill I was surprised he called it out by name in the state of the union address. The president actually said that caravan. Yeah, it was interesting that as the president was talking about border security and and the need for a barrier. We had about two thousand migrants gathering in the small Mexican town of negroes, which is right across the Rio Grande river from Texas. And this is an area where there is no barrier. It is just the natural barrier of the Rio Grande and at that point. It's only about one hundred twenty feet wide. So this is. Is a prime example of what the president's talking about. Now this group remains on the Mexican side. They are in a vacant factory building where are basically camping out being provided. The Staples by Mexican authorities waiting their turn to go through the asylum process to come into the United States. The problem is this is a very small point of entry eagle pass, Texas as a town of only about twenty eight thousand people along the border, and they say they can handle about twelve to fifteen people per day. So that means it would be months before these people could all go through the process here, and the fear is that they'll get impatient begins swimming across the river, so Texas has deployed about five hundred state troopers to that border along with fifty reserve deputies, and we of course, have our border control agents as well. So they are very visible along that border area. In case any of those migrants, get a little antsy and try to swim across the river. Is it a long swim at that point there? I'm not I'm not. Geography, very well doesn't look very wide to me. It looks like it's about one hundred fifty feet. Okay. Bills with us on NewsRadio one thousand care the Mexicans doing anything as they have in the past to try to give these people some aid. Yeah, they are. In fact, it's interesting that that there was a survey done Lee down at the Guatemala Mexico border, which is the first border that these caravans would have to cross in their in their trek north, and as part of the survey they said where where do you wanna go and only thirty percent of them said they want to get to the United States almost half of them said that they would likely stay in Mexico under a humanitarian visa program that Mexico has started. So I think the combination of Mexico's outreach to some of these people, and the fact that it's becoming clearer to these migrants said it's going to be very difficult to get to the United States. And if you do your chances of getting in or even less, I think maybe the message is beginning to get across that many of these people. Who are fleeing bad conditions in Central America are deciding to stay in Mexico, and and look for work there move their families their bills emperor on NewsRadio one thousand KT. Okay. You heard a certain I don't know if it was just booing or hissing or murmuring the microphones didn't really catch it. And when the president did bring this up in the state of the union last night with that's what was that. Mostly Democrats was mostly delegates who live along the border. I think it is Democrats because this remains, of course, the big issue as negotiations continue in an effort to avert another government shutdown or the president's declaration of a state of emergency along the border their border wall remains the big issue there. And I think that here with a lack of a barrier in this present condition here is a is exactly the president's point another part of this is Lee that this caravan as they move through northern Mexico is actually escorted by Mexican authorities. And they they brought buses to bring them up because that area of northern Mexico is controlled by the Zada drug cartel. And they thought it would be too dangerous for these migrants to be on their own. I've heard that before about that area of Mexico from migrants who come up here from Guatemala, and I have family who work in the sugar business, and they have a lot of migrants that come up in the fall to sugar mills down in southern United States. And that's the part of the journey. They fear the most in fact, if they can at all avoid it. They they try to drive straight through that zone and not stop the night. Yeah. It it's dangerous because this is a very very violent drug cartel. And that's something the president has talked about as well. Now, not only the violence that they can bring with it. But the opportunities for these cartels to move product across the US border at an area where there is no barrier. Bill zimper.
