Total turnouts for the county vote was about 15% and for the city was 29% I think I heard.

And likely those people in the 71% who didn’t vote are the ones who grumble the loudest about how bad our city government sucks.

Those are Tulsa World commenters

"What matters is that a mere 14% of registered voters under the age of 40, actually voted. And that is an increase from the average of 10%."

Where did you get this data from? Would love to see the turnout by age compared to the 2013 Mayoral race.

Channel eight this morning...or possibly Fox23. I probably shouldn't quote either of them since they didn't attribute a source. Oh, wait...I think they were interviewing a TYPRO's person. I would like to see an age and geographic breakdown too.

This is the first time in a while I've felt a little hope from a local election.

I could give a rat's donkey about his need for water in the river but at least Bynum seems to have something in the works.

Dewey's administration was consistently something to shake your head about.

Dewby made the comment in his concession speech the other night about still having plenty of work to do.  I wanted to call his smoking cell phone and say:  “Please!!! Don’t do anything else!!!”

He said that crazy smile again when interviewed by a local...he needs to just leave it the hell alone. 

He stated he didn't know why Tulsa chose Bynum...dammit dude...it's because you're doing more damage than good.

Apparently Inhofe is also confused about the nature of the non-partisan election.  He was quoted as saying Bynum being elected shows how well the Democratic Party is doing in Tulsa these days.  Shocked
