A petition for a grand jury investigation into alleged criminal activity by former Owasso City Manager Rodney Ray was filed with the Tulsa County court clerk Tuesday afternoon.
Filed by J.B. Alexander, head of the Owasso Taxpayer Alliance, and Tulsa attorney Christopher Camp, who currently represents Councilor Patrick Ross in his lawsuit against the city, the petition accuses Ray and others of dozens of criminal and corrupt acts, including destruction of public records, destruction of evidence, bribery, racketeering and election law violations.
The document claims the offenses were “committed in, related to, or resulting from the actions” of Ray and his “political allies,” and involved certain business transactions.
Alexander and volunteers turned in 9,642 signatures, nearly double the 5,000 they were required to collect.
Now, the election board has seven days to verify the signatures, making sure they are of registered voters in Tulsa County, before turning them over to Presiding District Judge William C. Kellough for an order.
