TULSA - For the first time, Tulsa will hold a non-partisan mayoral election, meaning the city could elect a new chief executive as early as next Tuesday.
If any of the five candidates gets 50 percent plus one vote, they will walk away as the winner.
That made Thursday night's 2013 Tulsa Mayoral Forum key to all the top contenders' chance to grab the brass ring.
It took place at Tulsa Community College's Creativity Center, near E. 9th St. and S. Boston Ave.
The forum was moderated by FOX23 Anchor Clay Loney and Dan Potter, host of the KRMG Morning News.
Former Mayor Kathy Taylor, former City Councilor Bill Christiansen and incumbent Mayor Dewey Bartlett participated, answering questions received by text and social media from viewers of FOX23 and listeners of KRMG.
Cox Communications produced the one hour show, as well as a half-hour live "postgame" program which also featured extended remarks by the three candidates.
Below, you can watch the entire forum broken down into individual segments.
