TULSA – Forget the glitz and glamour that comes with a life of celebrity. Taylor Hanson wants to talk about Tulsa’s mayoral race.
Hanson, the middle brother of the Tulsa trio that rose to fame — gulp — 17 years ago, took to YouTube to ask young Tulsa voters to show up Nov. 12 to help shape their city’s future.
“Hey, this is Taylor Hanson. I’m a musician, an entrepreneur and a guy from Tulsa, Oklahoma,” the short clip begins.

“People under the age of 30 have a lot of things to say, a lot of influence. And if you maybe haven’t decided to jump in and plan on voting, I want to encourage you to get informed and to get out there and decide who you want your next mayor to be.”
The one-time “MMMBop” singer’s video was posted to Who is MOTCOT’s YouTube page, a non-partisan, Nov. 12-focused campaign to help raise the youth vote in Tulsa.

Hanson concluded the video with one last push, echoing the mission of the his fellow election day enthusiasts.
“I look forward to seeing you back in Tulsa and I hope, if you haven’t already decided to do it, that this encourages you to show and cast your vote on Nov. 12 for the next mayor.”
