While at the Oklahoma Municipal Retirement Fund, Mr. Frazier assisted in the administration of a statewide municipal retirement trust which serves over 220 cities and towns throughout the state of Oklahoma and has assets exceeding 800 million dollars. His major focus areas include fiscal strength and sustainability, economic development, business/government/education coordination and collaboration, water resources and transportation.

Mr. Frazier attended the University of Oklahoma, where he earned his bachelor's degree in Communications and the University of Central Oklahoma where he earned a master's degree in Political Science with an emphasis in Public Administration.  While attending graduate school, Mr. Frazier was selected as a recipient of the highly competitive and prestigious Carl Albert Graduate Fellowship program. 
 
Welcome Mr. Frazier! 
 
The Oklahoma Municipal League (OML) Board of Director’s met for their regularly scheduled meeting on January 9 at the Norman City Hall.  Among the agenda items were the appointment of a replacement for Vice President of the Board of Directors and a new District 8 board of directors’ representative.

Mayor Matt White was elected to serve as the League’s District 8 board representative, which serves Oklahoma, Canadian, Cleveland, and Logan counties.

Board President Randy Ross said that White was recommended to this position from a group of 10 nominees because of his strong leadership skills, previous involvement with OML activities and committees, along with his enthusiasm of OML goals and objectives.

White said that he is very excited to be a part of the OML board and to serve not only the cities and towns within District 8, but, the entire state in areas that are most important to them.  “It is really an honor to be a part of such a great group.  I love the direction that the board of directors, Executive Director Mike Fina, and his staff are taking OML and I am eager to be a part of such an important focus regarding the advancement of cities and towns throughout Oklahoma,” White said.

Congratulations Mayor Matt White!

Auditions for “The Fairytale Courtroom”
January 23, 2019 – 2:00 p.m.
El Reno High School
407 S. Choctaw Ave.
This extremely adaptable comedy shows the other side of several familiar fairy tales, when two of their biggest villains, the Big Bad Wolf and the Wicked Witch, are brought to trial. Both the Wolf and the Witch have been frolicking from fairy tale to fairy tale, wreaking havoc as they try to prevent the general public from living happily ever after. Hear the personal accounts of what happened, told in testimonies and flashback sequences, from characters such as Snow White, Dorothy, Sleeping Beauty, the Three Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and many others, including the Witch and the Wolf themselves, as each trial unfolds. The audience is the jury, so each trial has two endings, depending on the verdict. ***Please bring a current photo to the audition.
