NORMAN — Ward 3 City Councilman Robert Castleberry announced Friday that he will seek re-election.

“I have been overwhelmed by the amount of emotional and financial support I have received over the past couple of months,” Castleberry said. ”There are many important financial issues that face Norman in the next couple of years.My background as a CPA and local business owner gives me a unique prospective on those issues.  We have alot more to accomplish as a city council, and I want to be part of the positive things that are on the horizon.” 

Ward 3 generally encompasses the area of west Norman, including west of 24th Avenue West from the southern City Limits to Robinson Street, west on Robinson Street to 36th Avenue N.W. then north to Rock Creek Road, west on Rock Creek Road to 48th Avenue N.W. and north to Indian Hills Road.
