JW S started this petition to Broken Arrow City Council

As citizens of Broken Arrow, we request the City Council take additional steps to protect our liberties from unnecessary mandates. Broken Arrow is operating currently under the guidelines given at our state and national levels. The Masks have been proven per capita to not be effective when comparing numbers to Tulsa City infection numbers since summer of 2020. This statistic shows the ineffectiveness of such mandates that are unnecessary to a population who chooses to wear masks when they need them. 

Broken Arrow Citizens have the option to go to Tulsa for all of their needs should they feel unsafe in a City who chooses to wear masks rather than requires it under threat of redress. The petition for mandates also quotes "medical journals and publications" as a source of information for long term effects of recovered COVID patients as an attempt to fear monger. This is not a valid argument as holds as much weight as an anonymous source and adds no context. The facts that have not been stated are the rates reflect almost exactly the same rates as Tulsa who requires a mask from their citizens. 

Reducing the rate of the disease starts with individual responsibility and choice. This is highly reflective of seatbelt requirements in vehicles and will be as ineffective since people will still choose to comply or not. Broken Arrow City Council have proven to be the most responsible on this matter and we would like to reinforce their stance and show support through signatures of residents to stand up to the larger neighboring city council and Mayor. Broken Arrow Council must not be influenced by Tulsa or any other City as this is a City level issue.
