The Final Stretch For Tulsa's Mayoral Candidates

Posted: Updated:

It's the final stretch before the polls open tomorrow

We asked the top three mayoral candidates what is their number one priority if elected.  It's what they want you to remember when you go to the polls and vote tomorrow. Woodland Terrace is the backdrop for Republican Mayor Dewey Bartlett.   He wants the group to know and us his priority if given a second term.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett says, "I'm the only candidate that has a verifiable practical true method of funding without a tax increase and ability to get to in our community to get to the manning levels that we need."

At OneOK Stadium Democrat and former Mayor Kathy Taylor is making her final pitch to voters. She hopes to score a big win tomorrow that would return her to city hall.  Here's her number one priority, "Working to raise public education because that's how you get jobs and that's how you get a safe city. It's education, it's public safety it's infrastructure but education is the key to all of it.  

For Republican Bill Christiansen, he says the election boils down to the people. He brought us to North Tulsa to the Shoppes on Peoria to illustrate his desire to to be mayor for all of Tulsa.

"The main issue is restoring the confidence of the citizens of Tulsa in the city system," says Christiansen.

As a former city councilor, He says he's tired of the attitude at city hall.

"It was don't tell us what you want we know what's best for you so that to me is a really big issue."

 The two other candidates on the ballot for mayor are Lawrence Kirkpatrick and Jerry

Branch. In addition, there are also three candidates for city auditor.
