Morrissette Seeks OKC Council Seat

Richard Morrissette announced Wednesday his intention to seek the Oklahoma City Ward 4 Council seat.

“The City Council has many public policy issues to address in the weeks and months ahead and I want to be part of that process,” said Morrissette.

Issues he mentioned included, “adequate police protection in our neighborhoods, ensuring that the Oklahoma City metro area has ample water supplies to accommodate the population growth, and improving the economic possibilities of south Oklahoma City.” He also said that street repairs “are vital to the citizens of Ward 4.” Morrissette has been a long-time resident and servant of Ward 4 in south Oklahoma City.

Because of the MAPS program, “The next few years will be critical to the development of Capitol Hill and other areas of south Oklahoma City. In addition, we need to work together as a community to better the lives of all the citizens in Ward 4.”

Morrissette graduated from Tulsa University Law School and his principal law office is located in south Oklahoma City.  He also recently completed 12 consecutive years in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. “Every day for the last 12 years I have championed for the citizens of this city in our state legislature. Whether it be for senior citizens, policemen, children, veterans, teachers, firemen, those with special needs, I have been fighting for their rights every day.”

During his tenure in the Legislature, Morrissette also championed transportation issues, including railroads. The former Representative from south Oklahoma City recommends development of an intermodal transportation depot in the area of South 59th Street and Interstate 35, “where two interstate highways (I-35 and I-44) cross.”
