Nikki Nice wins Ward 7 Oklahoma City Council runoff

Post Date:11/06/2018 10:01 PM

Nikki Nice won Tuesday’s special election runoff for the Ward 7 Oklahoma City Council seat.

Councilwoman-elect Nice will be sworn in at a special Council meeting on Nov. 19 to serve the remainder of the seat’s four-year term, which ends in April 2021.

The current representative for Ward 7 is Councilman Lee E. Cooper Jr., who the Council appointed June 5 to serve until the special election. His predecessor resigned.

The Council has nine members: the Mayor, who is elected citywide, and one member representing 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.

All election results are unofficial until certified by the Oklahoma County Election Board.
