Now Running for a Second Term: Tulsa Mayor GT Bynum
On this edition of StudioTulsa, just ahead of the August 25th mayoral, city auditor, and City Council election, we conclude our series of conversations with candidates seeking the office of Tulsa mayor. Our guest is Mayor GT Bynum, who's running for a second term at the helm in City Hall. As noted at the Mayor's campaign website: "The globally competitive and globally renowned Tulsa of today looks quite a bit different than it did four years ago. In light of how productive the relationship is now between our City Council, Tulsa County, and the mayor's office, it's hard to remember the predominant and unproductive bickering of the past that had stalled so much of our city's ability to problem-solve and move forward. As any of us in public service knows, you don't do it alone, and it is largely our team approach that has allowed us to accomplish so much these past four years.... [Those] years haven't been without their challenges, too. But it's been in the midst of these challenges that I found myself feeling the proudest of this city I love so much."
