Mayor GT Bynum

Sworn in as the 40th Mayor of Tulsa in 2016, Mayor G.T. Bynum is using data-driven outcomes to bring people together through innovative programming and resident engagement. Bynum’s focus on public safety, community development, fiscal stewardship and creating a more equitable and welcoming city for all Tulsans, is transforming Tulsa into a world-class and globally competitive city.

Bynum’s vision has led to the successful recruitment of two of the largest employers in the history of Tulsa, while outpacing cities throughout the country in job growth. Bynum continues to receive national recognition for his work in implementing one the most comprehensive community policing programs in the country, opening the greatest park gift in American History and creating new programming such as A Better Way, New Tulsans Initiative and the Resilient Tulsa Strategy – programs aimed to improve outcomes for residents.

In a career engrained in public service, Bynum has worked in the United States Senate for two Oklahoma Senators and served eight years as a Tulsa City Councilor prior to his election for mayor. As a native Tulsan, Bynum and his wife, Susan, are the proud parents of Robert and Annabel – the sixth generation of Bynums to call Tulsa home.
