After 21 years, Tulsa is getting a new city auditor.
Thirty-seven-year-old political newcomer Preston Doerflinger easily turned out 84-year-old incumbent Phil Wood in Tuesday's election, signaling what Doerflinger hopes is a new era of an activist auditor.
Change. It's a great thing.
Doerflinger was elected on the same night voters approved a charter revision requiring the auditor to be a certified public accountant or certified internal auditor. Doerflinger has neither.
