TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Incumbent Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum has won re-election to a second term in office.
Bynum held off a challenge from a young, Black community organizer and six other candidates in Tuesday’s election to win another four-year term in office.
The 43-year-old Bynum earned a reputation as a moderate who used data to drive decision making.
He has recruited foundation money for health and education projects in the city’s Black community and spearheaded a $640 million tax package for community improvements.
Greg Robinson launched a last-minute campaign for mayor.
He had criticized Bynum for not doing more to improve race relations in the city.
