Oklahoma City Councilmen Greiner, McAtee and Pettis re-elected, Ward 4 runoff April 4

Post Date:02/15/2017 9:58 AM

Ward 1 Councilman James Greiner, Ward 3 Councilman Larry McAtee and Ward 7 Councilman John A. Pettis Jr. were re-elected to their seats Tuesday, with the top two Ward 4 candidates facing a runoff April 4.

Councilman Greiner, Councilman McAtee and Councilman Pettis recorded majority victories in Tuesday’s Oklahoma City Council primary election, and no runoff is necessary in their Wards.

Richard Morrissette and Todd Stone received the most votes in Tuesday’s Ward 4 primary election, but no candidate received a majority. Stone and Morrissette will stand in a decisive general election April 4.

All registered voters in Ward 4 are eligible to vote in the April 4 general election. See a Ward map at okc.gov/wardmap.

Councilman McAtee was re-elected to his fifth full term, and Councilman Greiner and Councilman Pettis were re-elected to their second terms.

Morrissette and Stone are running to succeed Ward 4 Councilman Pete White. Councilman White is retiring after being elected to four full terms, the first in 1985 and the rest since 2005.

Council members are elected to four-year terms. The annual salary is $12,000.

The new terms begin when the members are sworn in before the Council meeting April 11.

The Mayor, who is elected at-large, and one Council member representing each of Oklahoma City’s eight Wards comprise the Oklahoma City Council.

All election results are unofficial until certified by county election boards.
