Doubts of the Tulsans whether Tesla factory will be built in Tulsa, dissipated when CEO Elon Musk visited Tulsa for possible construction of the next factory. Gov. Kevin Stitt and Secretary of Commerce Sean Kouplen, together with Musk, engaged in conversations about the details of the candidate site for construction.
“The site is very important to Elon. He likes to get a feel for it. He really goes based upon his kind of personal feeling,” Kouplen said. “So that was a big part of it, just letting him experience the drive from downtown to the site.”https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/government-and-politics/tesla-ceo-elon-musk-makes-visit-to-tulsa/article_75fe10c3-5fc4-54d1-9d9c-ffee4c1b50c5.html#1
