NORMAN — After a lot of careful consideration and with encouragement from family and friends, Matthew Leal announced his intentions to run for the Norman City Council Ward 2 seat.
“I moved to Norman close to a decade ago after my last deployment with the Oklahoma Army National Guard,” Leal said. “Along with my wife, Lisa, and my son, we are proud to call Norman our home.”
Leal said he wants to continue the high standards of Ward 2 and the city of Norman by working for smart community growth and safety and improving quality of life, and he wants to be a good steward of the taxpayers’ money.
“I have also recently served on the Strategic Water Supply Planning Committee,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to earn the privilege of serving the citizens of Ward 2 and the City of Norman.”
