Oklahoma Watch has filed a request with all statewide candidates asking them to voluntarily disclose financial information that is typically released by federal candidates and state-level candidates in other states.
The request includes earned income for 2017; details of assets such as stocks and real estate and ownership in any companies; sales of assets, and personal obligations. Oklahoma Watch also is requesting state and federal income tax returns for 2017 and 2016; release of tax returns is customary in some states and at the federal level.
The candidates are being asked to provide the information by July 27, and their responses will be made public.
Here’s a copy of the request, made by Oklahoma Watch Executive Editor David Fritze and state government reporter Trevor Brown:
