Three candidates for Oklahoma City Mayor to stand in Feb. 13 election

Post Date:12/06/2017 5:00 PM

Three candidates filed to run in the City of Oklahoma City’s mayoral election, setting up a primary election Feb. 13.

The candidates are:

  • David Holt
  • Randall Smith
  • Taylor M. Neighbors

Oklahoma City’s next Mayor will succeed current Mayor Mick Cornett, who isn’t seeking re-election after four terms. He has served as Mayor since 2004.

If the winner of the Feb. 13 primary election earns a majority of the votes, that candidate will be sworn in to a four-year term as Mayor in April. If no candidate receives a majority, the two candidates with the most votes will stand in a decisive general election April 3.

The Mayor is one of nine members of the Oklahoma City Council. The other members represent each of Oklahoma City’s eight Wards.

The Council is nonpartisan and members serve part-time at the head of the City’s Council-Manager form of government. The Mayor’s annual salary is $24,000, and Council members’ annual salary is $12,000.
