Bartlett laid out his view of the administration's accomplishments of the last year. More than a thousand people attended the luncheon and heard the speech.

Bartlett said jobs are both moving to Tulsa, and being created here by companies in expansion mode.

"While other people are forecasting gloom and doom and another economic recession, we see economic opportunity in Tulsa. We must and are taking advantage of it," Mayor Bartlett said.

Bartlett said through auditing, City Hall has identified $30 million in what he called "sensible savings" over the next five years.
