Dave O'Sullivan Is Guymon's New Mayor
05/14/2010

"It's with a heavy heart that I bang this gavel tonight," said new Mayor for the City of Guymon Dave O'Sullivan as he brought the City Council meeting to order on Thursday evening. "I just ask for continued prayers for Kenny Huckins family and that our prayers bring them comfort during this terrible time."

These were the words spoken by Dave O'Sullivan as he humbly accepted to fill in as Mayor due to the unexpected death of Mayor Kenny Huckins on Tuesday, May 4.

Under Oklahoma law, O'Sullivan automatically fills in as Mayor in the event the current Mayor passes away. He had the option to accept or the council could re-elect. O'Sullivan was honored to fill in those shoes.

The council voted councilman Jim Norris as the City of Guymon's new Vice Mayor. Norris was elected as councilman in 2009. When asked what some of his goals are as the new Vice Mayor he replied, "What I really want to focus on is moving forward on our capital improvement projects."

City Council voted to nominate a new City Council member instead of holding an election. "I say we choose to nominate a new councilman in order to save money," said Mayor O'Sullivan. "The term ends next April so if anyone interested would like to contact the City about becoming a councilman or wants to nominates someone, they are welcome to do so."
