Rosenthal said she decided to seek a third term because “it's not the time to change direction. There are too many important issues at stake.”

Addressing Norman's water needs is a top priority, she said, as well as maintaining a balanced budget and the city's quality of life.

“Norman has consistently been ranked as one of Oklahoma's most livable cities and ranks third in the United States for affordability,” she said. “We can continue this momentum and build on this success to make sure this city continues to be Oklahoma's best place to live, work and raise a family.”

Sherman is a former banker who now serves as controller for Fowler Holding Co. He is past chairman of the Norman Chamber of Commerce.

“I believe the leadership and vision I can offer will spur the creation of the community we all want for the city we love,” he said. “I would work diligently as the next mayor to bring an agenda of growth and prosperity to our community.”
