Holman challenging Lockett for Norman City Council seat

NORMAN — Ward 7 generally encompasses an area from approximately Brooks Street to the southern boundary of Norman, bordered on the west by Chautauqua Avenue and on the east by 12th Avenue East/Classen Boulevard. Stephen Tyler Holman is challenging incumbent Linda Lockett for the seat.

Council member Lockett is a lifelong resident of Norman and Ward 7. She attended McKinley Elementary School and Norman High School and is a graduate of the OU Business School with a degree in management.

Lockett grew up working at a family owned business, the Lockett Hotel. She later worked at the University of Oklahoma as a placement counselor. In 1978 she joined her brother Bill in another family business, Color Chrome Photographic Laboratories, from which they recently retired after 30 years of business.

Lockett has been a member of the Norman Business Association for a number of years, serving as the first woman president in 1988. In 1990 she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award. She currently serves on the Board of Directors and is also the Membership Chair. As past president of Friends of the Museum, Lockett worked to promote the building of a new museum to insure that the artifacts would be safely housed and stay in Norman.

Lockett currently serves as a member of the Council Oversight and serves as Chair of the Business and Community Affairs Committee. She also serves as Council’s representative to the Norman Convention and Visitors Bureau Board. Lockett wants Norman to be a city that your children and grandchildren will enjoy for many years to come.

Holman is the fourth generation of his family to call Norman home. He works for a family owned business in downtown Norman and has been involved in Norman city government for more than a decade.

Holman currently serves on the 2060 Strategic Water Supply Committee and is the liaison for the city element in organizing the Norman Music Festival.
