Democratic Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is scheduled to speak at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Greenwood Cultural Center, his campaign confirmed Thursday.

Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor, is a relatively late entry into the Democratic field. He did not qualify for Tuesday night’s debate but has been widely seen in recent television advertisements.

Bloomberg is connected to Tulsa and Greenwood through one of his philanthropies’ $1 million contribution to the Greenwood Art Project.

A campaign spokesman said Bloomberg will speak on his economic mobility agenda.
