Grady Memorial Hospital-Sales Tax Campaign


Pre-Bond Planning Services

CMSWillowbrook worked as a team member with Grady Memorial Hospital, the Grady County Commissioners and the Friends for GMH Steering Committee to organize a 1/4 cent sale tax campaign toward building a new OR & Imaging Center in Chickasha, OK. CMSWillowbrook served as a campaign strategist focusing on community relations. Our services included-educating voters on all aspects of the proposed building and how the funds would be used to build the project, kept the campaign countdown calendar and coordinated events and schedules, created all printed materials for the campaign (fliers, postcards, yard signs, press releases, thank you notes, etc.), worked in coordination with the team to create a series of videos for social media. The campaign was a success! 6,292 votes were cast and the sales tax passed with 80% "YES" votes.


In November of 2015 the Grady County Commissioners called fore a 1/4 cent sales tax toward building a new Surgical and Radiology Center at GMH. The CMSWillowbrook team played a major role in getting this to happen so quickly. They became very involved in the sales tax campaign and led the effort focusing on all aspects of community relations and strategy. Their knowledge of construction and state and federal regulations helped move our campaign forward.
