Paul S. Woolsey is a native of Duncan and has lived in the Oklahoma City area for more than 40 years. His family originally came to what is now Stephens County in 1873 and leased ranching land from the Chickasaws. Woolsey is a University of Oklahoma graduate with degrees in finance and industrial management. He was an investment banker for 25 years and specialized in financing governmental projects for many of those years. He was a financial adviser to institutional investors and to state and local governments throughout the country. Currently, he's a private investor.
Regarding “ME's office, Capitol among items that will have to wait” (Our Views, June 13): The Legislature refuses to issue bonds to fund these projects or develop any plan of action. Bonds can now be sold at the lowest interest rate since statehood, a rate that's less than the annual inflation increases in repair and construction costs. Those facts, however, are completely lost and irrelevant to a group that refuses to act in the best interest of this and future generations.
