Leadership key in Claremore’s future

CLAREMORE — One thing is inevitable in life. Change never stops.

Mayor Mickey Perry, Terry Willis representing Ward 3, Mark Lepak for Ward 4, Bill Flanagan, Ward 4, Don Purkey, Ward 2, and Brandon Smith, Ward 1 were sworn into office Monday night as the Claremore City Council’s make up was completely transformed.

Newly sworn in Flanagan was elected by his fellow councilors as Deputy Mayor, replacing Paula Watson.

Six new councilors of the nine seats now have new faces, new viewpoints and all will be getting acclimated to their responsibilities of serving city residents.

They will have the support system of City Manager Daryl Golbek and newly promoted Communications Director Cassie Woods.

Last week she was named the city’s executive officer. Her responsibilities have grown from marketing director to public relations director to communications chief. He responsibilities have been enlarged to over see several departments, including the city clerk’s office as well as information technology.

Her keen insights will be of vast help to the incoming councilors. As she and the new councilors begin their new journeys, may they find the support of the community as they serve and make Claremore even better than ever.

    Dear Editor,
    I’ve read, with interest, Andy Pasztor’s r article in the 02 August edition of the WSJ on the latest delay in the publication of a final rule to update the decades-old duty and rest rules for most commercial flight operations. It has to be a great challenge to take a complex technical issue and reduce it to understandable terms for a general readership.
