Tulsa, OK – Tulsa mayor proposes line of succession to mayor
TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tulsa mayor Dewey Bartlett is proposing a new line of succession to city mayor should the mayor for whatever reason be unable to fulfill his or her duties.
The move comes following the resignation of Chief of Staff Terry Simonson leaves the city with no one designated to step in if Bartlett is unable to fulfill the duties of mayor.
Bartlett told the Tulsa World that the line of succession now includes interim economic development director Clay Bird and city finance director Mike Kier. The proposal is subject to approval by the City Council and the full list was not released.
