NORMAN — Two candidates for Norman City Council will speak at the Tyner Cornbread and Beans on Friday March 1.

Benjamin Carter, a candidate for Ward 3, and Stephen Holman, candidate for Ward 7, will present their visions and field questions.

Carter was born and raised in Norman. He is a private music educator having worked in that role for five years. His family has been in the central Oklahoma area since before statehood and has inspired him to be a part of public service. His chief concerns are water, responsible growth, recognizing the rights of all citizens and better public transportation.

Holman is a fourth generation Normanite, works for a family owned business downtown and has been involved in city government for over a decade. He serves on the 2060 Strategic Water Supply Committee and is the liaison for the city in organizing the Norman Music Festival. His primary concerns are water supply needs, safe housing for all and smart growth practices.

The luncheon will be held at Catering Creations, 3750 W. Main and is sponsored by the Cleveland County Democratic Party.

Lunch begins at 11:15 a.m. with the speakers beginning about noon. Guests will select lunch from Catering Creations’ mini-buffet. The meeting is open to the public.

Polling site vote

Voters in Precincts 68 and 59 will be voting at a different polling site beginning with the April 2, City of Norman Election, according to Cleveland County Election Board Secretary Jim Williams. Precinct 68 voters who voted at the Norman Wastewater Treatment Plant will now vote at Cobblestone Creek Clubhouse. Cobblestone Creek Clubhouse is located at 1350 Cobblestone Creek Drive. Voters in Precinct 59 who voted at Super 8 Motel will now vote at Memorial Presbyterian Church which is located at 601 24th Ave SW.

New Voter ID cards reflecting this change in polling place have been sent to all voters in precincts 68 and 59. Voters in these precincts should look for their new cards in the mail.
