Mayor Bynum sworn in

Mayor G.T. Bynum was sworn in as the 40th Mayor of the city of Tulsa this month during a ceremony at Central Library in downtown Tulsa.

“I come from a family that believes service as mayor of Tulsa is the greatest honor in elected public service, and I am so thankful my fellow Tulsans have given me this chance to give it my all in this job,” Bynum said. During his candidacy, Bynum pledged to renew a spirit of high expectations with a focus on education, economic development, government efficiency, public safety and community development.
