TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Mayor-Elect Dewey Bartlett announced Tuesday morning that First District Congressman John Sullivan will chair his Mayoral Transition Team.  

"I am so honored that Congressman Sullivan has agreed to chair my transition team. I've known and worked with John for nearly 2 decades, under his leadership we'll be able to assemble a top-notch staff to tackle our city's most pressing issues" Bartlett said.  
John Sullivan will serve as the chairman of the transition team through Bartlett's inauguration on December 7.

"I am humbled to serve as the chair of transition team for Mayor-elect Bartlett. While I represent the needs of all First District residents in Washington, DC, Tulsa is my home and whatever I could possibly do to help make this a better place to live, I will most certainly do," said John Sullivan. "Dewey has a number of difficult decisions to make once he takes the oath of office in just a few weeks. Our goal is to help him be educated and prepared with a very capable staff and all of the information he needs to move our city forward."

Other members of the transition team include: Bartlett government relations and political advisor Karl Ahlgren, Tulsa County Director of Development and Governmental Affairs Terry Simonson, Tulsa City Councilor GT Bynum and Bartlett campaign manager Jarred Brejcha.
