Former County Commission candidate Sally Bell was elected head of the Tulsa County Republican Party during voting Saturday at the county convention.
Bell easily outpolled Tulsa Huntington Learning Center owner Bryan Osborne, receiving 58 percent of the vote at the Expo Square Exchange Center. Owasso engineer J.B. Alexander will be Bell’s vice chairman. “It’s great for the party to have a contested race and to have a civil debate,” Bell said. “Now it’s time to move on. We are going to build this party.” Bell, who was vice president and chief financial officer of Bell's Amusement Park until it closed in 2006, unseated County Commissioner Randi Miller in last year’s Republican primary before losing to Democrat Karen Keith in the general election.
