Councilor Byron "Skip" Steele was sworn into office Monday, December 5, 2011.

Councilor Byron "Skip" Steele is a lifelong Tulsa resident. He is a graduate of Thomas A. Edison High School. Councilor Steele also has a business degree from John F. Kennedy College and a graduate degree in electronics.

Councilor Steele has lived in District 6 since 1979. He has owned All Hours Computer Service, a computer and printer repair business, for the past 12 years.  Before owning his own small business, Councilor Steel worked for Telex, Corp. in a variety of positions including as an engineer, technician, Human Resources Industrial Analyst and a corporate environmental specialist. While working for Telex, he served for 3 years as an elected Union representative.

Working on computers is not only his occupation; it's also one of his hobbies. In his free time, Councilor Steele said he likes fishing and spending as much time as possible on Grand Lake.

When asked why he felt compelled to run for the District 6 seat, Steele replied, "I ran for office out of frustration, as I saw Tulsa was not moving forward."

One of the many ways Councilor Steele plans on "moving Tulsa forward" is through communication with his constituents. He invites all Tulsans to join him the first Tuesday of every month for his ongoing series of District 6 Town Hall meetings. These meetings will feature guest speakers that will give updates on what's happening at City Hall and in District 6. The monthly meetings are held at Martin Regional Library, 2601 S. Garnett Rd., and begin at 6:30 p.m.
