The long process of selecting Tulsa's next mayor comes to an end on Monday.
Mayor Dewey Bartlett defeated Kathy Taylor last month and will take the oath for his new term, this one three years long.
The mayor says one of his new initiatives will be to revamp elections so they don't last so long.
But as he goes into the inauguration, the mayor satisfies one of his campaign talking points -- that great cities often "keep their top leaders in place."
"We see they've had that continuity of leadership, both in the political arena as well as in the business community," Bartlett said.
The city inauguration is Monday at 2 p.m.
Three city councilors and a new city auditor also will take the oath of office.
