TULSA, Okla. — When Tulsa District 2 City Councilor Jeannie Cue meets with people in her district, she will often ask whether revitalizing schools or neighborhoods is more important.

Some say the former, some say the latter, and others say both need to happen at the same time.

But now, Cue will be getting opinions from other female municipal leaders from across the country.

The District 2 councilor since 2011 says she has been invited to the White House on Dec. 12 to represent Tulsa, joined by nearly 100 other women, all elected officials from across the country.

The event is highlighted by discussions on community revitalization, economic growth, child care, and other issues. As Cue read these topics off the invitation, she became all the more excited to be invited.

Cue hopes to find new ways for a city like Tulsa to revitalize schools, neighborhoods, and get more people into permanent homes.
