Mayor Mick Cornett, sworn in earlier this month for his fourth term, took time out for some questions from The Oklahoman as the city prepares to celebrate its 125th anniversary.
Q When you consider Oklahoma City’s 125-year history, what word comes to mind to describe the city and its people?
A Oklahoma City was founded by adventurers and entrepreneurs and desperate souls seeking a better life. We’ve continued to have inspirational and visionary civic and business leaders ever since.
Q What does the future hold for Oklahoma City?
A We’re set up to succeed — but, realistically, there is always the potential for issues you can’t control.
Q What is your favorite moment in Oklahoma City history?
A It hasn’t happened yet. It’s when we hang the banner for our first NBA championship.
