OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Municipal League held a forum in Oklahoma City Wednesday morning featuring the two candidates for governor, Jari Askins and Mary Fallin.

The focus was on issues facing cities and towns. Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett and Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett attended the forum as well as city leaders from across Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Impact Team moderated the event which took place at the Cox Convention Center.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett started off the forum talking about Tulsa's concerns with the Oklahoma Tax Commission.

Bartlett discussed the city of Tulsa's current lawsuit concerning the state Legislature, which mandates cities must use the Oklahoma Tax Commission for sales tax revenue collection.
