“I will actually go to city council meetings. My opponents have never been to a council meeting and I am the only Moore native in the race. That’s why I think I am the best for the job,” he said.
Carl D. Britton Jr. is the founder and president of In Their Face Marketing LLC. He is an Oklahoma native, originally from Del City, a professional speaker and the author of the book, “Facebook for Independent Pharmacy.”
Britton hopes to improve the city’s water supply. He believes a proper water strategy is not in place and wants to create a comprehensive plan to handle Moore’s water usage issues.
Business growth in Ward 1 also is high on Britton’s list and he believes his skill set as a banker and a business owner gives him the fiscal responsibility and expertise to accomplish just that. Britton said he wants to “give back to the community.”
Britton expects to put a water conservation plan in place and educate residents about the water issues, namely Moore’s dependence on Oklahoma City for water. He also plans to develop more office space and drive more business to Ward 1 while at the same time addressing quality of life issues for the residents of the ward.
“My wife and I sat down and talked about where we wanted to move. We decided to move to Moore because of the people and the city, we want to help it grow and prosper,” Britton said.
