Candidate withdraws from city council race

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Spaulding is the incumbent and a lifetime resident of Ward 5. He and his brothers were raised on a family homestead and he still lives nearby. A graduate of Life Christian School, Spaulding is an entrepreneur and small-business owner.

Running for Ward 7 are Linda Lockett, 74, 910 Elm Ave., and Stephen Tyler Holman, 28, 1030 S. College Ave.

Lockett is the incumbent, a former small-business owner and life-long 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.

Holman works for a family owned business in downtown Norman. He is the fourth generation of his family to call Norman home. He currently serves on the 2060 Strategic Water Supply Committee and is the liaison for the city element in organizing the Norman Music Festival.

Three candidates have filed to run for mayor: Thomas E. Sherman, 67, 2811 Majesty Court; David Kempf, 51, 317 Towry Drive; and incumbent Cindy Rosenthal, 62, 903 Carey Drive.

Sherman retired from McClain Bank, a family owned business, in 2010. He completed his year as chair of the Norman Chamber, then decided to go back to work. He is currently the controller for Fowler Holding Company.

Kempf is a small-business owner and entrepreneur. He has been a Norman resident since 1991. He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, is married and has two children.

Rosenthal was elected mayor in 2007. She is the director of the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center at the University of Oklahoma. She and husband, Jim, have two adult children, Caitlin and Aaron, and live with their canine friends Lenny and Sandy.

Friday is the last day to register in time to be eligible to vote in the April 2 election. Because the city election is nonpartisan, Norman residents may vote for candidates within their wards, regardless of party affiliation.
