Thread: 2022 Norman Mayoral Election

  1. #1

    Default 2022 Norman Mayoral Election

    Well this race will be interesting. After Larry Heikkila announced his candidacy in July as the conservative, back the blue candidate, UN put forth another candidate Dr. Kish.
    Larry apparently feels betrayed and is now not cooperating with the UN originization.
    Should make for an interesting contest.

    Sounds like the Unite Norman vote will be split and Mayor Clark will cruise to easy re-election.

    She would still have to get a majority of the vote, which I doubt will happen, because I expect yet another candidate to enter the race soon, one that will appeal to anti-Unite Norman voters. This race is very likely going to a run-off.

    You canít make this up

    Leuck believed the Norman mayor made an annual salary of $156,000. She said she wanted to be like former President Donald Trump and only keep enough of the salary for essential needs and taxes, then donate the rest of the money to the NPD.

    The Transcript informed her the mayor does not make $156,000 a year, and only makes a maximum of $100 a month.

    According to Leuck, if elected mayor, she wants to get the casino to pay for a “state of the art homeless shelter.”

    “The casino needs to step up to the plate and should have a long time ago to build a state of the art homeless center,” she said. “Because I know for a fact many homeless are drawn here as a last ditch effort to win big at the casinos. Many with substance abuse issues.”
    she also doesn't know that a mayor in Oklahoma has no control over a casino. And that if they build a Homeless shelter, it would probably be on tribal land and no in Norman... but okay

    Looks like Dr. Stitt is trying on the "king maker" jacket.

    Why would any governor endorse anyone at the mayoral level ?

    I don't know why, I personally don't think Stitt will get re-elected.

    I think he will, given his stance on the pandemic mandates and related things. It really goes a long way with the conservatives.

    Default Re: 2022 Norman Mayoral Election

    That's probably also the reason for this endorsement:

    Kish is a self-identified conservative who traveled to Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021, to attend the #StopTheSteal rally. Stitt is also a Republican who is currently running for reelection.

    Isn't admitting they were at the rally enough for one of us to collect some sort of bounty to find people that were there?

    Just attending the rally was hardly illegal, freedom of association and all. From my understanding the people getting in trouble are the ones who stepped into the building.

    Not that it's relevant to this discussion, but there are some who are in serious trouble who never went into the building.

    "He was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, communicating by cellphone and a chat app with members of his team, many of whom went into the building. But there is no evidence that he entered the Capitol."

    There was a mayoral forum of all the candidates earlier this week. It can be found on the Norman U tube channell. It's a good opportunity to see where your candidate stands on te issues and what their solution is.
    One candidate claimed to be the "only outsider" self owning that she has no expierience in building a consensus. It should be an interesting race though it also seems to repeat many mayoral elections of the past in focusing on one issue.

    Pretty brutal numbers for Clark, although I donít pretend to know how those delicatessen votes will shake out in a runoff

    I guess it will come down to those who voted for Midway Bob which way they will go in the runoff.
