A year into the job of running the city, Tulsa Mayor Bill Lafortune celebrated the milestone, with a get-together at the Greenwood Cultural Center Monday night.

The mayor's first year has been dominated by bad economic news. The mayor was forced to furlough city employees and worked on several lawsuits against the city.

On the flip side, he's kept the city pools open and kicked-off another downtown redevelopment effort.
