G.T. Bynum was sworn in as Tulsa’s 40th Mayor on Monday, Dec. 5. Bynum is carrying on the family tradition of public service. His grandfather, Robert J. LaFortune, was Tulsa’s 31st mayor, from 1970-1978.
Since being elected, Bynum has been assembling his staff. With their help, Bynum intends to work hard to see Tulsa grow. He plans to partner with Tulsa Public Schools and other education organizations to help improve education and compete nationally for economic development.
He and his wife, Susan, have two children, who will be the sixth generation of Bynums to be raised in Tulsa.
