Now Running for Tulsa Mayor: Greg Robinson

Aug 14, 2020

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we begin a series of programs featuring conversations with candidates seeking the office of Tulsa mayor. With a non-partisan primary coming up on August 25th, voters will either elect (or re-elect) Tulsa's next mayor -- if any one candidate gets over 50% of the vote -- or the field will be narrowed down to two mayoral candidates, who will in turn appear on the November ballot. Our guest today is Greg Robinson, a native Tulsan who served as a community organizer for President Obama's re-election campaign in 2012 as well as for Hillary Clinton's campaign for the White House in 2016. Also, as noted at Robinson's website: "Upon his return home in 2016, Greg joined Met Cares Foundation as a founding staff member, serving as Director of Family and Community Ownership. Met Cares' mission is to transform the social and academic outcomes of North Tulsa's families. In 2017, Greg worked alongside Founding Principal Kojo Asamoa-Caesar to open Met Cares' first school, Greenwood Leadership Academy, a neighborhood elementary school in partnership with Tulsa Public Schools."
