Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum has named Amy Brown the city's newest Deputy Mayor.

Brown replaces Michael Junk, who Governor-Elect Kevin Stitt recently named as his Chief of Staff.

“Amy Brown has one of the best minds I’ve encountered in public service at any level," Mayor Bynum said. "I’ve worked with her for years, both on the City Council and now in the Mayor’s Office. Over the last two years, she has taken on some of our most challenging projects - from improving the city government as a workplace to establishing the Tulsa Jail. She has proven herself as an adept manager and leader and will make a great Deputy Mayor. I am thankful she has agreed to move into this role."

A deputy mayor acts as mayor in their absence.

Brown will begin her role starting January 14.
