“Running for mayor was a higher profile, and I had not experienced that,” Lamb said. “Mayor drew a lot more attention.”
Lamb said he is interested in getting busy with work that got put on hold until after the election, including deciding whether the city will allow electronic signs and the examination of a study about Edmond Electric rates. He anticipates the council will start holding workshops on a regular basis.
He said he wanted to be elected for two more years because he wanted to see completion of the $24 million competitive swimming pool and recreation center, a partnership of the city, the YMCA and Edmond Public Schools.
Lamb said he also has two granddaughters who wanted him to keep being the mayor because they enjoyed riding with him in the city's annual Christmas parade.
Since he had been appointed, this was Massey's first political campaign. He will serve a full four-year term.
“I am pleased with the results,” Massey said. “I feel we ran a good campaign. I am very excited.
“I am honored to be appointed, but more excited to run a campaign and be elected.”
Massey is a supporter of economic development, something he plans to continue promoting.
“We have got a great mayor and council in place,” Massey said. “It is time to go back to work.”
