I found a link on the general forum page which allowed me to look up Durant's growth rate from mid 2016 to mid 2017 of 2.0%. I searched but can not find a list of city growth rates in Oklahoma? Thanks

The 2017 population estimates are out for Oklahoma towns of more than 5000 in population, and it looks grim. The majority of towns have lost population. Enid and Lawton both have lost nearly 1000. For the most part, only the suburbs of Oklahoma City and Tulsa are looking up. Oklahoma's government policy of banning towns from raising minimum wage pay and the low regard for education generally isn't even working to attract low pay employers to come to the state. So vote incumbents out of office in June and November. They already had their chance. Voting to reelect them only encourages them to do more bad.

Five years ago, or so, citizens in Oklahoma City tried to raise the minimum wage in Oklahoma City by going the petition route. But it failed from not having enough signatures. Even so, Republican legislators made sure that wouldn't happen again by passing a bill banning Oklahoma localities from raising the minimum wage.

I always chuckle at that quote. In high school our coach kept us late at practice running the same play over and over. I mentioned this quote by Einstein. The coach wasn't amused.
