Ward 7 Oklahoma City Councilwoman Nikki Nice is hosting two community forums in June: A panel discussion with black elected officials on June 13, and a conversation with Mayor David Holt on June 25.

“It’s going to be a big summer in Oklahoma City getting down to business on planning for the next MAPS program, the continued development projects on the northeast side and keeping our momentum going to make life better for our residents,” said Councilwoman Nice. “I’d like to invite all Ward 7 residents to these forums. Hear from your elected officials about what’s happening and where we’re going.”
