Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett is the recipient of the
2013 Oklahoma Mayor of the Year Award. He was presented the award last night
from the Mayors Council of Oklahoma (MCO) at the Oklahoma Municipal League
(OML) Annual Awards Banquet in Tulsa.
Cornett became the first Oklahoma City Mayor to win the honor since the Mayor’s Council of Oklahoma began presenting the peer-voted award in 1992.
“It’s an honor to be selected by your peers for any award. My fellow Oklahoma Mayors are doing fantastic work at the municipal level in public safety, building strong neighborhoods and meeting the infrastructure needs of their communities. This award is also largely a reflection on the vision and will of the people of Oklahoma City, whose hard work and big dreams have resulted in the community’s current renaissance,” said Cornett.
The MCO award recognizes the dedication and commitment brought to the highest elected post in municipal government. Criteria for consideration requires nominees be an MCO member and in elected municipal office at the time of presentation. Additionally, nominees must complete a minimum of three years of service in an elected municipal office and their municipality must be an OML member.
