Krows re-elected to Moore City Council Ward 1 seat

MOORE — Robert Krows was re-elected March 5 with 74.9 percent of the vote for the Ward 1 Moore city council seat. Ward 2 and Ward 3 were noncompetitive races, with Jason Blair returning unopposed for Ward 3 and Scott Singer as the only filer for the Ward 2 seat replacing Kathy Griffith.

The Rose State College special election passed 64.4 to 35.6 percent, with only two Cleveland County precincts — 140078 and 140087 — participating in the question.

The bond issue for Rose State College was for $21.9 million in renovation and repair projects. Large projects included in the bond issue were the expansion and renovation of the library, repair of the swimming pool and upgrades in equipment. The most recent renovation to the library was an expansion in 1981. Since that time, growth of the school has created crowding difficulties in the facility.

One expected improvement in the proposal is an auditorium to be used as a lecture hall associated with the library. Officials expect the bond to raise property taxes for those families affected by $3.34 per month for a $200,000 home.

Voting in Ward 1 of Moore was surprisingly light for the only competitive city council race between Krows, Carl Britton Jr. and Eric Beu. Polls opened at 7 a.m. and by 5:30 p.m., the two precincts — which vote at Providence Church on South Broadway — had only been visited by 67 voters and three voters, respectively.

With only 307 total votes cast, Krows received 230, more than double the total of the other two candidates combined.

Britton was magnanimous in defeat when asked about his feelings on the race.

“I would like to offer my congratulations to Mr. Krows. The race was very well done, Krows is well respected in this community and the people came out and showed their support for him. The only thing I’m disappointed about is the fact there are 18,000 people in this ward and just over 300 voted. That’s a little disappointing,” Britton said.
