City Staff Remember Finance Director Tom Caldwell


Tom Caldwell, long-time Finance Director for the City of Broken Arrow, died on Wednesday, July 12. He was 64 years old. Caldwell began working for the City nearly 25 years ago in October 1992.

Caldwell graduated from Louisiana Tech and went on to earn his Master's Degree in Accounting from Oklahoma State University. During Caldwell's time as Finance Director, Broken Arrow grew from a city of just over 61,000 people to approximately 112,000 today. Caldwell oversaw a budgeting process that ensured municipal services were provided at the high level expected by residents, regardless of the rapid population growth.

A funeral service for Caldwell is scheduled for 6:00 p.m., Friday, July 14 at Hayhurst Funeral Home in Broken Arrow.

Tom Cook, Controller, is currently serving as the Acting Finance Director.
