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