The Tulsa County Commissioner District 3 seat is up for grabs and voters will head to the polls Tuesday.
A Republican Primary was held in June.
KRMG was at the watch party for Ron Peters the night he won.
Peters talked about the importance of roads.
He says, “Infrastructure is the main thing for all the outlying areas. That’s where the growth is coming. More infrastructure, more roads, more bridges, brings more business, more rooftops and more taxes.”
Ron Peters has served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives for the past 12 years.
His opponent, Democrat John Bomar, says he's a businessman who's willing to put politics aside.
Bomar says, “Although my political affiliation is as a democrat, I feel that a bi-partisan approach will best benefit all of the residents of district 3 and Tulsa County. If elected to county commissioner I will work hard to make our district and Tulsa County a better place to live for all the people.”
Bomar worked for Tulsa County for 16 years.
The term is only one year because the current commissioner, Fred Perry, is stepping down.
KRMG is Tulsa's Election Headquarters.
You can hear live coverage of the special election Tuesday night on FM 102.3 and AM 740 Newstalk KRMG.
The results will also air on the KRMG Morning News with Dan Potter on Wednesday.
