Mayor G.T. Bynum says he will run for reelection in 2020, rules out a third term

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said Thursday he will run for reelection in 2020.

Bynum, 42, became mayor in 2016 when he defeated incumbent Mayor Dewey Bartlett.

“It is real simple: We have taken on really big goals for the city, and these are not things you can just flip a switch on,” Bynum said. “It takes time to make a really lasting impact.”

Bynum ruled out seeking a third term.

“I need time to see things through, and then I am done,” he said.

Bynum made his remarks in response to a question from the media after his State of the City address to the Tulsa Regional Chamber at the Cox Business Center.

Bynum represented District 9 on the City Council for nearly a decade before being elected mayor.

The city’s 2020 nonpartisan municipal general election is scheduled for Aug. 25. The runoff election, if necessary, would be Nov. 3.
