Ward 6 includes the area between 12th Avenue Northwest and 36th Avenue Northeast, with a northern Boundary of Indian Hills Road and a portion between 12th Avenue Northeast and 24th Avenue Northeast, with a southern boundary of Alameda Street.
Jungman retained his Ward 4 city council seat, winning over two challengers, William Hickman and Rhett Michael Jones. Jungman, 37, has 13 years continuous service as a civilian federal employee and manager. He won by a 62 percent margin, which precludes a runoff.
“This is a victory for all of Norman,” Jungman said. “We are all neighbors — literally — and we can simply work together to resolve any disagreement. I can’t thank enough my family, my campaign team and my neighbors in every corner of Ward 4 for their faith in me.”
Hickman, 45, is an attorney who serves as the chair of the board of directors for the Good Shepherd School for children with autism and is legal counsel for the John Rex Elementary Charter School.
“I want to thank my family and my supporters through this campaign process,” Hickman said. “I’m proud of the issues that we’ve raised, and I look forward to working with Councilman Jungman to get some things done for our neighborhoods.”
Jones, 38, is an accountant working at Don Armstrong CPA. Jones good-naturedly joined Griffith and Jungman at a watch party hosted at MainSITE.
“Greg (Jungman) and I disagree on certain points when it come to economic development,” Jones said, “but there’s a lot of things we agree on when it comes to protecting the neighborhoods in Ward 4.”
