Gov. Stitt endorses Kish for Mayor of Norman


GOVERNOR STITT ENDORSES DR. NICOLE KISH for MAYOR of NORMAN 

Norman — Governor Kevin Stitt has endorsed Dr. Nicole Kish for Mayor of Norman.

In a statement, Governor Stitt said:

“Dr. Nicole Kish is the right candidate for this unique time in history to lead Norman as its next mayor. Dr. Kish is a political outsider that will bring her successful business record to prioritize resources towards keeping our communities safe and thriving. I am proud my parents raised me in the Norman community and in Norman public schools. This city needs bold, common-sense leadership to help capitalize on the momentum the rest of Oklahoma is experiencing with booming economic growth, and Dr. Kish has the grit and will to make it happen. She is passionate about protecting freedom, supporting our public safety professionals, and making Norman the most competitive city for new jobs. Help me elect Dr. Kish on February 8.”

Dr. Kish is a co-founder of Unite Norman, the grassroots organization who recalled city council members last year for their defunding of police. She is a Small Business Owner and Doctor who has practiced in Norman for 22 years, serving 100,000 patients. She is also a Veteran of the Oklahoma Air National Guard during 9/11.

The endorsement is significant. The Norman Transcript reports that Governor Stitt has never endorsed a Mayoral candidate of any city during his entire governorship. Dr. Kish is also the first candidate in the race to receive an endorsement from a Statewide elected official. Even though the February 8th election is non-partisan, there is at least one other republican in the race.

“I’m so humbled and grateful to Governor Stitt for his endorsement,” said Dr. Kish. “It is time for collaboration between the City of Norman and our great State of Oklahoma leadership. As a fellow business owner, Governor Stitt and I will work together to return public safety, improve Norman’s business reputation, and get our local economy back on track.”
