Trio seeks Ward 1 seat on council

MOORE — Three men are seeking the Ward 1 city council seat in Moore. They include the native son incumbent, a marketing entrepreneur and a former candidate for House District 53. 

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 5. Ward 1 contains all of precincts 140022, 140024, 140063, 140070 as well as parts of precincts 140021, 140044 and 140072. Additionally, Rose State College will have a special election on March 5 involving Cleveland County precincts 140078 and 140087.

Scott Singer was the only candidate to file in Ward 2 and Jason Blair, the incumbent, was the sole contender in Ward 3. Singer will replace Kathy Griffith and Blair remains in office.

Ward 1 roughly constitutes the southeast third of the city of Moore. The largest of the three wards with approximately eight and half square miles, Ward 1 also has the least frontage on Interstate 35 extending from Main Street to South 19th Street and only on the east side of the Interstate.

Incumbent Robert Krows has been the head wrestling coach at Moore Junior High for nine years and is a graduate of Moore High School. Krows also graduated from the University of Oklahoma Price College of Business and is pursuing a masters of education leadership.

Growth and development in the area are key issues for Krows. His hope is to address these issues with the best options available and he believes he has the experience to accomplish those goals. Constituent representation also is a motivator for Krows.

“The people of this area have not always been represented the way they want,” Krows said.

Krows said he will represent the constituents of Ward 1 the way they want to be represented and he will “stand up for citizens.”

Krows said he will work to improve the quality of life, infrastructure and parks and recreation services. Street repair is a key issue as is access to and from the ward. Krows said he would like to see an underpass at the railroad tracks on Southeast 4th Street and a bridge built on Southeast 34th Street to improve traffic flow to and from the ward.
