Singer plans to run for city council

NORMAN — Longtime Moore resident and retired Moore Police Sergeant Scott Singer has announced plans to run for the Moore City Council Ward 2 seat.

The three-day filing period opens Monday at the Cleveland County Election Board.

A Moore resident since 1978, Singer cites continued support for the development of Moore and the need for renewal in the Ward 2 areas as his reasons for deciding to run.

“I feel that my long association with the city of Moore and my experience with the infrastructure support my qualifications to sit on the Council,” he said.

Additionally, Singer said, he was concerned about the northwest quadrant of the ward suffering from a depressed housing market, crime and a real need for commercial stimulus.

He hopes to rebuild Ward 2 into a viable, livable portion of the community.

Singer is married to Diana Singer, has two daughters and three grandsons.

Since moving into the East Hills area in 1978 his family has spent the majority of their time in Moore in Ward 2.

He has worked in law enforcement for nearly 40 years.

He retired from the Moore Police Department as a sergeant of detectives and the public information officer after more than 27 years.

After retiring, Singer returned to school and earned a paralegal diploma. He taught and law and legal issues — to paralegal students — at City College and later at Platt College in Moore.

He currently is the sergeant supervisor for investigations at the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.
