Oklahoma City @ 125: The view from the mayor's suite

by William Crum Published: April 15, 2014

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 Inspirational.

Q Why?

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.
