“Their support is a great boost for our campaign's momentum.”

TULSA, OK – Three prominent Oklahoma former elected officials have endorsed State Representative Monroe Nichols’ bid to be the next Mayor of Tulsa. 


Former Governors Brad Henry and David Walters, and former Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor endorsed Nichols' candidacy. Henry, Walters, and Taylor join thousands of Tulsans in expressing their support for a new kind of leadership that prioritizes ending homelessness, making Tulsa the biggest safe city in the country, and creating economic opportunity for every corner of the city. 


“It is humbling to receive the support of each of these public servants,” Nichols said. “Their support is a great boost for our campaign’s momentum and in addition to the outpouring of grassroots and fundraising support we have already received.”


“I know what it takes to lead our city, and I’ve known the candidates in this race for years," Taylor said.  "When it comes to who will best serve Tulsa as our next mayor the choice is clear. Monroe has the energy, the ideas, and the experience to lead a coalition focused on creating economic opportunity for every Tulsa family.”


“Tulsa is a wonderful community brimming with unmatched potential,” Henry said. “It’s essential for the next mayor to have a vision for the future and the experience and aptitude to build an infrastructure around that vision.  I believe Monroe Nichols is best suited to harness the city’s incredible potential, and I am proud to enthusiastically endorse him for Tulsa’s next mayor.”


“You don’t get opportunities to elect leaders like Monroe Nichols often,” Walters said. “If Tulsans want a mayor that will be an aggressive advocate for Tulsa families in every neighborhood, I urge them to support Monroe Nichols for mayor.”
