After nearly 20 years in public office, Fred Perry retires from his post as Tulsa County Commissioner.
There’s more than a little levity at his last County Commission meeting, as Perry says goodbye to fellow commissioners and department heads. Citing health reasons, he’s retiring early…the term doesn’t expire until December of next year. He plans more leisure and family time, including playing tennis, fly fishing, and spending time with grandkids. He says he will continue volunteering for some causes, but will not run for public office again.
Before being elected to the Tulsa County leadership role, Perry served 12 years as a state representative. A special election will be held next month to determine a successor.
