Getting to know the Claremore City Council candidates: Mickey Keely

Mickey Keely

Editor’s note: The following is a submitted campaign announcement.

My name is Mickey Keely. I am running for Claremore City Council as a representative for Ward 2.

I originally moved to Claremore in 1978. I graduated from Claremore High School in 1988.  After serving in the United States Marine Corps, I attended Rogers State College, graduated from NSU in Tahlequah, and received an MBA from Southern Nazarene University in 2000.

Nancy and I married in 1992 and have two sons and two daughters ages 14-23.  We have been an active part of Rehoboth Baptist Church since 1997, where I teach a weekly adult Bible class and have been serving as a deacon for three years.

After obtaining my Oklahoma locksmith license I opened Keely Lock and Key in 2008 in Claremore. Almost daily I meet new people and occasionally reacquaint with old friends.

The reason I decided to run for city council is because I feel the citizens of Claremore deserve better from our local government. It seems that we are not represented in the decisions that affect us directly or indirectly. I am not afraid to stand up and speak out for what is fair and right. If elected, I will vote according to the will of the citizens of Ward 2.
