Editor’s note: The following is a submitted campaign announcement.
Will DeMier, current Ward 4 City Councilman, seeks to keep the position, which he has held for the past three years.
“My goal as city councilman is simple: Keep Claremore progressing in the right direction as it has been doing for the past three years. Whether it is better equipment for the police and fire department, a new water plant, new duplexes throughout the city, 70 to 80 planned townhomes, new businesses and shops including Main Street Tavern or the upcoming Chick-fil-A, it’s all progress.
“Cooperation now between the city of Claremore, Rogers County, The Cherokee Nation and CIEDA is at an all-time high. One example of a major project is the new sewer line that will run from Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs on Highway 20 to Claremore.
It will open an abundant area for business development in this area of Highway 20,” DeMier said.
DeMier, a republican, grew up in Miami, Okla., and has lived in Claremore since the early eighties. “I work in Tulsa and it would be easier to have lived there, but I chose to live and raise my children in Claremore.”
He holds a bachelor’s degree in education and law degree from the University of Tulsa. From 1979 to 1989, DeMier worked for the Tulsa Police Department as a patrol officer and supervisor, and worked undercover narcotics. He has defended hospitals and nurses in lawsuits for the past 28 years.
