Tomorrow is the most important Oklahoma City election in a generation. We have a clear choice – whether to continue the Oklahoma City renaissance or not.
The story of our renaissance is well known. Our success gives us the opportunity these next four years to invest in our neighborhoods like never before.
We must continue to support public safety, where we have added 70 new police officers over the last two years.
We must continue our unprecedented investments in better streets.
We must continue the economic policies that have led us to have the lowest unemployment and highest income growth in the nation.
We must support the quality-of-life improvements that have made us proud, like the MAPS projects and our beloved Thunder.
And we must work to improve our schools, building on the success of MAPS for Kids.
To seize these opportunities, I humbly ask for your vote tomorrow.
We can’t take victory for granted. This is important. It is critical that you vote tomorrow. For two decades, our unity has been preserved by strong participation from voters who want to see us move forward, not backward. I am asking you to answer that call again.
I ask you to reach out to your contacts, friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers. Post messages on Facebook and Twitter. Make calls. Do everything you can to preserve our city’s remarkable renaissance.
If you need a ride to the polls tomorrow, call our campaign headquarters at (405) 605-3000. If you need more information about voting, visit http://mickcornett2014.com/voting/.
Thank you for your support. And thank you for believing in Oklahoma City’s future.
Mayor, Oklahoma City
P.S. Remember to vote tomorrow!Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’ve posted these throughout the campaign, and we’ve heard from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Tammy West. Tammy lives in Tanglewood West – Mick
My husband Jon and I have been so blessed to spend all 33 years of our marriage in the Tanglewood West area, right by Lake Overholser.
What a terrific place to raise a family. There are bike/walking trails, kayaking, fishing, picnic areas, and beautiful trees! More importantly, we have benefitted from strong neighborhood schools.
I was heavily involved in PTA when MAPS for Kids passed. Now, as a member of the Putnam City School Board, I have seen firsthand the difference it has made in the infrastructure of our school districts.
There is nothing more gratifying then seeing your children graduate, achieve advanced degrees and find excellent jobs in your hometown. Our daughter is newly married and living in the revived and vibrant downtown Oklahoma City.
The rebirth of our downtown area, due to MAPS, is a source of pride and economic growth for our whole state.
We are truly grateful to live in a city where we can enjoy the vision for growth and stability that Mayor Cornett has implemented. We have benefitted and so will the next generation.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Tom and Sherrel Legan. They live in Quail Creek. – Mick
We have lived in Quail Creek for over 36 years.
We are so pleased that everyone in Quail Creek takes pride in keeping their homes and yards well maintained. We feel safe walking in the neighborhood any time day or night. In fact we often walk at 5:30 in the morning.
Our neighborhood has wonderful neighbors and we feel proud to call it home.
Quail Creek’s central Northwest location has easy access to any part of the city via the Hefner Parkway, Memorial Road and the Kilpatrick Turnpike.
We love what Mayor Cornett’s leadership has done for our city and our neighborhood.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Jenn Ketchum. Jenn and her husband live in Morgan Creek. – Mick
My family moved to Oklahoma City two years ago via the Air Force. Being from Texas I had never planned on living in Oklahoma, but once we settled here and saw all the great things happening in this city we fell in love. After moving every three to four years and seeing so many other cities, we knew Oklahoma City was different.
The kindness of the people, the long list of things to do and see, the pride in this city and state. It’s something we haven’t felt anywhere else. We love Oklahoma City so much and my husband will be retiring soon, so we have decided to make it our forever home. With plenty of job opportunities and a neighborhood we love, why would we leave?
When the tornadoes came through Oklahoma City last spring, our neighborhood was without power for a week. Everyone pulled together what food they had and we had a big block party. Morgan Creek (off County Line and 29th) is truly a community. Neighbors helping neighbors. That’s what Oklahoma City is about.
Thank you Mayor Cornett for all the work you have done for this city!Tweet
This afternoon, I cast my vote. I hope you will join me in voting to continue our city’s remarkable renaissance.

Thank you for your support of continuing Oklahoma City’s renaissance!Tweet
On Tuesday, March 4th, we will vote in the most important city election in a generation. I speak for thousands of active supporters when I urge you to stick with Mick on March 4th.
Mayor Mick Cornett has led our city into a remarkable renaissance, and we don’t want to see that end.
A brand-new TV ad called “Our Mayor” has debuted, and I’d love for you to watch it. Look for the handsome man in a hat. The folks in this ad speak for the many in this city who are supporting Mick’s positive vision for the next four years. More than anything, our message is – VOTE ON MARCH 4TH!
Please, stick with Mick on March 4th and let’s keep Oklahoma City moving forward!

Governors Mary Fallin and Brad Henry Lead 850+ Endorsements for Mayor Mick Cornett
In an unprecedented show of bipartisan support, today the campaign to re-elect Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett announced the endorsements of Governor Mary Fallin and Governor Brad Henry. They were joined by Governor George Nigh, U.S. Congressman James Lankford, former mayors Ron Norick, Kirk Humphreys, Andy Coats, Jim Norick, many former and current City Council members, and over 850 other Oklahoma City residents who wish to see the city’s renaissance continue. The election is Tuesday, March 4th.
“Our city’s unity is why we enjoy a renaissance known around the world,” said Mayor Mick Cornett. “For two decades, we have rejected divisive and negative politics, putting our city first. In keeping with that tradition, this list of endorsements comes from citizens across the ideological spectrum and across the city. They are endorsements of the renaissance we are enjoying and the path we took to get here. I am grateful for this unprecedented support, and I look forward to the mandate our city will deliver on March 4th. This renaissance will continue, and it will continue because we are still united.”
Mayor Cornett’s “Neighborhood Steering Committee” consists of over 850 endorsements from Oklahoma City residents living in over 300 neighborhoods.

I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Carla Sharpe. Carla and her husband live in Crown Heights.
My husband G. Calvin and I have lived in historic Crown Heights for almost 29 years.
Things were pretty dismal in Oklahoma City when we first moved here in the mid-1980s. Many of our friends moved away to other cities then, but we chose to stay, committed to do what we could to make OKC better. Now, we couldn’t be happier that we stayed, and our old friends marvel at what OKC has become!
We love Crown Heights for many reasons: beautiful, well-kept historic homes; a strong homeowners’ association; excellent nearby schools; the proximity to a booming and rejuvenated downtown; the significant improvements and revitalization of so many other historic areas near us that, after years of languishing and deteriorating are now being transformed into destination spots and thriving businesses.
And Calvin is loving how close we are to the Oklahoma River—he’s on two rowing teams and rows several times each week, something unimaginable just a few short years ago! The quality of life in our neighborhood just couldn’t be much better!
We are thrilled that so many young families continue to flock to Crown Heights, thanks in large part to OKC’s ability to attract young talent due to its strong economy and great lifestyle. OKC has truly become one of the best places to live and we, like so many of our neighbors, attribute that to the strong positive leadership of Mayor Cornett.
Let’s keep Mayor Mick’s momentum going and continue to work together to make OKC the best city it can be!Tweet
Prominent leaders in Northeast Oklahoma City are endorsing the re-election of Mayor Mick Cornett on Tuesday, March 4th.
“I am grateful for the support of these strong leaders who have done so much for our community,” said Mayor Cornett. “We have created a renaissance in our city by working together. Every part of our city has pulled on the same rope. But there is always more we can do, that’s why I am running for re-election, and together, we’ll get it done.”
Today, the campaign supporting Cornett’s re-election released the following quotes of endorsement from prominent Northeast Oklahoma City pastors, elected officials, community and business leaders.
“Mick Cornett is ‘my’ mayor and I am with him all the way. I am voting for him on March 4th.”
-Thelma Parks, longtime Oklahoma City school board member
“I am pleased with the growth of the city and look forward to the continued progress. Mick Cornett is helping to create jobs and that’s important.”
-Dr. M.L. Jemison, Senior Pastor of St. John Missionary Baptist Church
“I wholeheartedly support Mayor Mick Cornett for re-election. I have much faith in the Mayor as a visionary. He has proven his ability to lead our city, in that he has moved the city forward in the area of economic growth and development. He has moved the city into the 21st century and made us more competitive economically.”
-Teron V. Gaddis, Senior Pastor of Greater Bethel Church
“I have worked with Mick Cornett on countless projects through the years to benefit the Northeast community. He cares about all Oklahoma City residents, and not just at election time. I strongly urge you to cast your vote for Mick on March 4th.”
-County Commissioner and former Ward 7 City Councilwoman Willa Johnson
“This is a great city being led by a proven great leader, our Mayor Mick Cornett. He deserves another four years.”
-Russell Perry, Perry Publishing & Broadcasting Company
“I’ve known Mick Cornett for over 30 years – since his sportscasting days – and I think he’s a great mayor.”
-Stanford White, Douglass High School football coach and science teacher (1976-2003)
“Mick has been a great, visionary leader for all of Oklahoma City.”
-Former Ward 7 City Councilman Ronald “Skip” Kelly
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Jason Taylor. Jason and his wife Sarah and their family live in Hunter’s Place. – Mick
My wife Sarah and I moved to Hunter’s Place in Southwest OKC in 2008. I requested an assignment at Tinker Air Force Base and we chose to move to Oklahoma City after many years of living in Washington, D.C.
For my wife, who is originally from Connecticut (and works in Democratic politics!), a move to Oklahoma was, frankly, a little frightening! But, five years later, she would be the first person to tell anyone who asks why she loves living in Oklahoma City so much – especially since we have added two young sons to our family!
She brags on the safety of our neighborhood, the low cost of living, the relaxed pace of life here, the friendly neighbors, and the myriad opportunities for fun family adventures in and around OKC. We frequent city parks and walking trails that wouldn’t have happened without the leadership of our Mayor. We tout the accomplishments of our Thunder! And as I have taken an assignment abroad with the Air Force and left my family here for a year, I take comfort in the fact that my wife and my young sons are in a safe, supportive community.
We are proud residents of Hunter’s Place, we are proud members of the Oklahoma City community and we are proud to support our Mayor, Mick Cornett.Tweet
Today, we’ve launched our second TV ad of the campaign – “Building Stronger Neighborhoods Together.”
This ad lays out my vision for the next four years. We can keep building stronger neighborhoods by continuing to grow the economy, support public safety, and keep improving our streets, our schools, and our quality-of-life.
Check the new ad out here!Tweet
The mayoral election is now just over two weeks away. It is absolutely critical to continuing our city’s remarkable renaissance that you participate in the March 4th election. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some important information about absentee voting, for those who cannot vote at your local precinct on Tuesday, March 4th.
In-Person Absentee Voting
In-person absentee voting is sometimes referred to as early voting. If you are unable to be in town on Tuesday, March 4th, please be aware that you can vote in-person absentee at your county election board on Thursday, February 27th or Friday, February 28th, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Keep in mind, residents of Oklahoma City who live in Canadian or Cleveland County must cast their in-person absentee vote at their county election boards, which are not located in Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma County Election Board is at 4201 N. Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City.
The Canadian County Election Board is located at 200 S Bickford Avenue in El Reno.
The Cleveland County Election Board is located at 641 E. Robinson, suite 200 in Norman.
Absentee Voting by Mail
If you cannot vote at your local precinct on March 4th, there is still time to apply for an absentee ballot by mail.
The link to information and forms related to absentee voting can be found here: http://www.ok.gov/elections/Absentee_Voting/
In brief, you must fill out an application and mail or hand deliver it to your county election board. The application must be in the hands of the county election board by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 26th.
Once you receive a ballot, you must fill it out, have it notarized, and MAIL it. It cannot be hand-delivered. Your ballot must be in the hands of the county election board by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4th.
For more questions about voting, visit the “Voting” page at our website: http://mickcornett2014.com/voting/, or call our campaign headquarters at (405) 605-3000.
Thank you for your support of continuing Oklahoma City’s renaissance!Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Stan Deardeuff. Stan and his wife Joan live in St. Martin’s. – Mick
My wife Joan and I moved into St. Martin’s Condominiums in 2007. We were previously 14 years at Fountaingate in Quail Creek.
St. Martin’s is a neighborhood of 78 homes. The Association maintains the exterior, including the landscaping and the physical maintenance of the exterior of the home, including the walls, roof and windows. We are responsible only for the interior improvements and our personal contents. We moved to St. Martin’s principally to get out of a two-story house and to leave the maintenance to others. Joan has difficulty in assigning any “honey-do’s”, as all that is taken care of by the Association.
We intend to support Mick’s re-election by word of mouth to friends in St. Martin’s and also to elicit support for Mick among our adult children in their neighborhood. Mick has done an outstanding job as Mayor and we certainly need his continued leadership.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Pam Henry. Pam lives in Superbia Retirement Village. – Mick
I live in the Superbia Retirement Village, an independent living facility that was one of the first such properties built in Oklahoma City. Superbia residents either have disabilities, are elderly, or both.
My neighbors and I are delighted about Oklahoma City’s work to include people with disabilities in city transit, planning, expanded sidewalks and programs.
Many who live here are members of America’s “Greatest Generation” who stayed strong during the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl and won World War II.
Police, fire and ambulance services to Superbia are outstanding and warmly welcomed.
Elderly and people with disabilities need special services to enjoy full, happy lives. Under the leadership of Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, our lives are improving.
Attention to older citizens and citizens with disabilities by Mayor Cornett, the OKC City Council, MAPS 3, Metro Transit, the OKC Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator, and the Planning and Public Works departments is greatly appreciated. We are a group of very happy Oklahoma City retirees!Tweet
Growing up in the Coronado Heights neighborhood is where I learned the values that have guided me as your mayor. Today, we launch our first TV ad of the campaign, shot in my childhood home with my mom Nona.
The values my parents gave me are a lot like the values we used to create the remarkable Oklahoma City renaissance. In just three weeks, on March 4th, we’ll decide whether that renaissance will continue.
Our campaign is working tirelessly to get our positive message out to the voters.
Today’s ad is a big part of that effort. Will you help us today to keep it on the air by donating $25, $50, $100 or more?
Together, we’ll win this election. Then, together, we’ll continue the Oklahoma City renaissance and we’ll keep building stronger neighborhoods.
Thank you for your support,
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Sherry Fair. Sherry lives in the Briarcreek neighborhood. – Mick
Briarcreek has been our neighborhood home for nearly 15 years. We can’t imagine the day we do not live here. We raised our children here and our daughters still come home and settle in as if they never grew up and left home to start their own lives. They are both committed to staying here. That speaks to what our neighborhood and our city means to them.
We didn’t think about it when we moved in but Briarcreek is the perfect location for raising a family. One mile from the elementary school, two miles from the middle school, two and a half miles from PC North High School and everything else we need within two to three miles. And, to put an explanation point on it all, neighbors who look out for each other and make it a special place.
Recent improvements to northwest OKC are making this an even better neighborhood. During the past few weeks we have watched the progress of sidewalks going in on MacArthur. Now that the work is finished, we’ve seen people using the brand new sidewalks that have been laid in front of Hefner Middle School. Not only is it great to see people out exercising, but it’s wonderful to know the children have safe sidewalks when walking to and from school.
We enjoy taking advantage of the entertainment opportunities across the city and downtown, especially Thunder basketball, but when we turn down Britton Road to travel the last mile home everything seems right with the world. It’s where our children rolled across the floor laughing in an empty living room the day before we bought our house and it’s where they come home as young adults. We still snuggle on the couches and watch TV as in days gone by.
This isn’t just an address for us: it’s love, laughter, the perfect past and wonderful days to come.Tweet

I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Nathaniel Harding. Nathaniel lives in the Mesta Park neighborhood. – Mick
My wife Amanda and I live in Mesta Park with our two daughters, Maggie and newborn Lucy, and we love our neighborhood. My three-year-old, Maggie, and I bike together to the park across the street where we often see friends and meet new people. When the weather is fair it’s common to see people congregate on porches or go on walks. We love living so close to downtown, while having a real family-oriented neighborhood experience. I often bike to work in Bricktown and will stop and chat with friends along the way.
I remember one day in particular that really captured why we live here. We took Maggie to the Boathouse District where she conquered the little kid’s ropes course, then got to the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in time to see the RedHawks win. When we got home, the park was teeming with life as teenagers played Quidditch, a drum circle played, kids enjoyed a birthday party, and a church group played volleyball. Maggie joined in the fun, dancing along to the drum circle. It’s inspiring to see the investment our parents made in the city 20 years ago paying dividends, and we intend to continue the momentum so our children will be able to experience an even better life.
It’s exciting to see so many wonderful things happening all around us, like the new developments along 23rd in Uptown, or the trails connecting with the Oklahoma River trail. People believe in what’s happening here, and we’re so lucky to be part of this renaissance.Tweet
Thanks to the 1,600 folks who came out yesterday for the State of the City address!
The state of our city is unquestionably strong. Thanks to our unity over the last two decades, we have one of the best economies in the nation. Our success allows us to focus on building stronger neighborhoods like never before. Over the next four years, we can continue to increase the number of quality jobs, support police and fire, continue our unprecedented street improvements, and continue to improve our quality of life and our schools.
If you weren’t in the audience yesterday, you can watch the speech here.Tweet
This morning, I filed to run for re-election as Mayor of Oklahoma City so that we can keep building stronger neighborhoods – TOGETHER.
Thank you for your support for continuing Oklahoma City’s remarkable renaissance!
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Jennifer and Joe Johnston. They live near NW May and Britton. – Mick
Our family has lived in the May and Britton area for 12 years. The charm of the winding streets and huge trees make this a wonderful neighborhood to live in and raise kids. We have a 17-year-old and a dog, and both love the convenience and comfortable atmosphere of the area.
A while back we had a drainage problem at the back of our property. We called the city and they, under the leadership of Mick Cornett and our Councilman, Pat Ryan, provided a solution that we all hope turns out to cure the problem.
We find the mayor to be responsive and helpful. We’ve watched the amazing things our city has accomplished and choose to support a proven entity and a dedicated public servant. We’re voting Mick for Mayor.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Myrna Kay Smith. Myrna Kay lives in the Zedna Ann neighborhood. – Mick
When I retired a little over one year ago, I decided to downsize. I sold my home and moved into a rent house in the Zedna Ann Neighborhood.
I love the neighborhood. People are very friendly, and they range from young couples to singles and other retired folks.
During the warmer weather they walk in the early morning and when they pass by my house, they always speak, ask how you’re doing, or just wave. I didn’t have that in the neighborhood I moved from.
I haven’t been here but a few months, but I do like it and am glad I made this decision. We have a well-maintained park with playground equipment where the children play.
I have been a Mick Cornett fan for a very long time and think he has done wonders for our City.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Chris Tytanic. Chris lives in the Apple Valley neighborhood. – Mick
I live in Apple Valley with my two daughters. I enjoy Apple Valley because of my neighbors. The lots are all over one acre so it attracts families looking for a country setting with the amenities of Oklahoma City services.
Mayor Cornett helped make a difference in our neighborhood by instituting OKC trash recycling. My daughters are very “green” and love the opportunity to make a difference in our environment. This is a service you would not expect living on the outer edge of OKC but Mayor Cornett certainly understands its importance and made it happen.
I built my home in Apple Valley 20 years ago last month and it only gets better and better in Apple Valley!Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Jim Marvel. Jim and his family live in the Oakdale Meadows neighborhood.
Our family has called Oakdale Meadows home since December, 2011. My wife Christine, son Charlie, daughter Julia, dogs Enzo and Maybe (and a few turtles) love our neighborhood.
Oakdale Public School is just down the street and provided an outstanding academic, extracurricular and social experience for our daughter. Moving in the middle of the school year was challenging, but everyone was very welcoming to our family.
We moved from Atlanta, GA and we were able to find a southern style home in Oakdale Meadows with a wraparound front porch for rocking chairs – it really helped us to feel “at home”.
Our son Charlie has enjoyed fishing in the pond and we all enjoy walking in the neighborhood. We have participated in several events through our Homeowners Association and met many friends in the neighborhood.
We have had instances in our neighborhood requiring response of fire, police and ambulance. Although we are located in the Northeast corner of Oklahoma City, response has been timely and responders have been professional and effective. We are proud to call Oakdale Meadows home.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Davis Merrey. Davis and his wife Barbara live in the Northwood Lake Estates neighborhood. – Mick
My wife Barbara and I live in Northwood Lake Estates, just west of the intersection of Northwest Expressway and Piedmont Road.
We love it there because of the openness of the neighborhood and the neighbors. Our home is on two acres and backs up to Northwood Lake, so our five grandchildren love to come out and romp around, explore in the woods, and if they get lucky, catch a fish or two.
We gladly share our environment with turkeys, rabbits, deer, squirrels, raccoons, and the like, and a bit less gladly with armadillos, possums and coyotes.
It’s quiet out here and as we walk a lot for exercise we enjoy being able to do so along the neighborhood streets without having to dodge cars and trucks.
Even though we are “out in the sticks” we are just a short drive from the “Big League City” and all it has to offer. It’s all good.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Nick Harroz. Nick and his wife Keegan live in the Fairview Farm neighborhood. – Mick
Keegan and I love living in Fairview Farm in northwest Oklahoma City.
We enjoy the fact that all the streets have sidewalks, and love taking our two dogs for walks when the weather permits. The common area green belt behind our home also provides a great exercise venue for our dogs.
Under Mayor Cornett’s leadership, the expansion of Western Avenue and 150th Street to four lanes has allowed us to access any part of Oklahoma City with relative ease.
Fairview Farm has benefited from the success of Oklahoma City’s economy, its investment in infrastructure, and its investment in quality of life.
Keegan and I are proud to be residents of Oklahoma City.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from John Riesenberg. John and his wife live in the Shepherd neighborhood. – Mick
My wife Jessi and I moved into our home in Shepherd Neighborhood this past April. It’s a great little historic neighborhood that spans five blocks by three blocks in Oklahoma City’s urban core. The closeness creates a strong sense of community that we love.
We’re right across the street from Oklahoma City University where Jessi works and not far from where I work downtown. It’s full of beautiful historic homes that are occupied by an eclectic mix of young couples like ourselves, as well as folks who lived in the neighborhood back when it had dirt roads.
It was not that long ago that people considered Shepherd a rough part of town. The investments that Mayor Cornett championed have revived our urban core and brought neighborhoods like Shepherd back to their former vibrancy. It’s now one of the most desired neighborhoods for young people in OKC.
Jessi and I feel safe walking our dog around the neighborhood day or night. We love taking him to Swatek Park, and are excited to see the improvements to come there as a result of our neighborhood’s partnership with the City of Oklahoma City.
We are proud of our neighborhood and even prouder of our big league city, both of which would not be where they are today if it were not for Mayor Cornett’s hard work and leadership.Tweet
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’m posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Thomas Keller. Thomas and his family live in the Warwick Estates neighborhood in NW OKC. – Mick
My wife Cathy and I live in the original Warwick Estates. We have a six-year-old daughter, Emma, and we love Warwick as it has great facilities for families: a pool, tennis courts, playground, lake, and greenbelt.
We especially love the fact that a great school, James L. Dennis Elementary (Putnam City) is a stone’s throw from our front door and we love walking our first grader home most days.
Warwick has an active Homeowners Association and residents who care about their homes and the neighborhood. The friendliness of our neighbors can’t be beat and we really look out for each other.
Thank you Mayor Cornett for all your efforts to make our neighborhoods and city a great place to raise a family!
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’ll be posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s today’s blog from Diana Wall. She and her family live in the Brookwood neighborhood in South OKC. – Mick
My family lives in the Brookwood Addition which is located near South Walker and 104th Street in south Oklahoma City.
We brag to many of our friends and co-workers that we have the best neighbors in the world. I have been involved in our neighborhood association board and love our area.
My husband is a longtime south Oklahoma City resident and volunteer for the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department. I was a transplant from Bartlesville, OK and was a recent city resident when the first MAPS vote happened. I was excited to be part of such a progressive city.
I have witnessed first-hand the positive effects Mick Cornett’s leadership has brought our city and my neighborhood.
I’ve asked members of my Neighborhood Steering Committee to guest blog and talk about why they love their Oklahoma City neighborhood. I’ll be posting these throughout the campaign, and we’ll hear from people all across our great city. Here’s the very first one, from Sid Burgess. Sid lives with his wife Melinda and their kids in Deep Deuce. -Mick
We are a family of five living in the Deep Deuce District near Bricktown. We consider ourselves to be pioneers of a sort – after all, not many families make their homes Downtown right now. But Downtown makes a great place for families to live, work, and play. We feel confident that many more families will be drawn to the area soon, given the new housing that is under construction and the charter elementary school that is being planned through the MAPS for Kids program.
Our favorite aspect of downtown living is that we can walk to so many great places from our front door – the locally owned Native Roots Market for groceries, the expansive and beautiful Myriad Gardens (chock-full of programs and attractions for kiddos!), the Bricktown district for food and entertainment, or any of the museums and other cultural attractions that make OKC a world-class city on the rise. We enjoy an active, car-free, urban lifestyle, and downtown OKC is moving in the right direction to make that lifestyle more possible for more people.
Probably our favorite part about living downtown is the sights and opportunities it affords our kids. Every day they want to go on a walk and explore a little more. We don’t have to be living in the country to have an active family. The people we meet on the street, and friends we run into all add to the richness of these excursions.

Mayor Mick Cornett Announces His Re-Election Campaign
Mick Cornett announced today that he will seek re-election as the Mayor of Oklahoma City.
Mayor Cornett made the announcement in a web video posted at www.mickcornett2014.com. Alerts were sent out via Mayor Cornett’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Elected in 2004, Mayor Mick Cornett has presided over a remarkable period in Oklahoma City’s history. His optimistic leadership has encouraged the full blossoming of a renaissance that has been felt in Oklahoma City’s neighborhoods and its economy.
Cornett has led the charge to build stronger neighborhoods, through unprecedented investments in city street infrastructure and an increase in police officers. Cornett has also promoted policies that have led to tremendous job growth. For much of Cornett’s time in office, the city has enjoyed the lowest unemployment rate in the nation.
Cornett has also led the way to dramatic improvements in quality of life. His vision and leadership is widely credited with making Oklahoma City a “big league city,” through the arrival of a permanent NBA franchise. Like the NBA’s Thunder, Cornett now represents Oklahoma City on the world stage, and is never shy about telling the Oklahoma City story. The implementation of MAPS 3 will also continue to help the City’s residents realize a dream of building a city that their kids and grandkids will want to call home.
Cornett has also been a strong advocate for better education, through his oversight of MAPS for Kids. And Cornett has been a vocal advocate for leading healthier lifestyles, an issue on which he is a national leader. He also has become a national resource on building stronger neighborhoods, and a national spokesman on city issues, through his leadership of the national organization representing Republican mayors and local officials. Cornett has been a longtime leader in the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and hosted the national meeting for that organization in Oklahoma City in 2010.
Cornett believes in a limited and efficient government that reflects Oklahoma City’s values. The City has not increased its sales tax or property tax rates during Cornett’s tenure as mayor, and at the same time has left a record of achievement that is the envy of the nation. For this, Cornett credits inclusive decision-making, his ability to work with neighborhood leaders and members of the City Council, and the optimism that characterizes “a faith-based city that works hard and dreams big.”
