7 Things To Know From Election Night…

From JoBeth Hamon winning reelection to a white nationalist being elected to the Enid City Council, we break down the notable things you need to know from Oklahoma election night.

10:14 AM EST on February 15, 2023

Last night, municipal elections were held throughout Oklahoma, allowing old people, left-wing weirdos, right-wing religious zealots, and a few normal people who care the opportunity to decide what people and policies will govern us at the most local government level. 

As a public service to our valuable readers and more valuable subscribers, I combed through last night's election results, and thought it would be easy and clickable to provide a quick-hitting list of the some of more notable and relevant results you should know about.

Here you go…

1. JoBeth Hamon zooms by Marek Cornett in Ward 6 battle…

In the most watched council race in the OKC metro, incumbent socialist capitalism-hater JoBeth Hamon cruised past challenger Marek Cornett in the bike lane by a 55 to 45 margin, ensuring the leftwing activist-types in the metro will have a voice in city hall for another four years. 

It’s a statement victory for JoBeth, who overcame a likable, well-funded-for-a-council-race opponent, and will now get to continue to irritate the local ruling class with her compassion, leftist leanings values, and basic existence.

On that note, I’d like to offer my condolences to Marek Cornett. I’ve known her since the dawn of the social media age, and as I’ve written on this site in the past, she’s a friend and one of the nicest people I know. She put up a good fight, and although I feel bad for her, I’m happy that she at least won’t have to work a selfless, shitty, low-paying job for the next four years.

2. Enid voters elect White Nationalist to City Council…

Judd Blevins – a guy who "allegedly" attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and was the Oklahoma chapter president for a racist group called Identity Evropa  – was elected Enid Ward 3 City Commissioner by a 5% margin.

He did so despite headlines like this appearing in the local newspaper:

In a perfect world, men who were photographed participating at an infamous rally where angry white bros chanted “Jews will not replace us” would get throttled in local elections, but as the NY Times has reported, Enid is far from perfect. There's been a fight for the soul of the city, and sadly, I think we're seeing who's winning. I guess the only surprise here is Judd didn’t win by a larger margin. 

3. Kelly Lynn ousted in Norman City Council race...

On the topic of racists, we’d like to give a shout-out to our old pal Kelly Lynn. 

We’ve had a lot of fun over the past couple of years covering his old drug arrests, forgery convictions, racist comments, and the time he got drunk and verbally accosted and intimidated a grandmother at Louie’s

Sadly / fortunately, Kelly lost his reelection bid last night:

Although Kelly’s days at Norman City Hall may be over, don’t feel too sorry for him. It looks like he’s been named a municipal judge in Wewoka, where his experience dealing with the legal system as both a lawyer, defendant, and racist will serve him well. 

4. Frank Urbanic finishes distant third in OKC Ward 8 race...

The curse of the TLO endorsement strikes again! 

Despite our glowing endorsement, Frank Urbanic barely cracked 10% in his bid for the Ward 8 council seat. I guess the Lake Hefner name is safe… for now. 

5. Yukon voters say no to streets

Last night, voters in Yukon struck down a special bond election that would have funded street and sidewalk improvements.

That’s surprising. Most people I know who live in Yukon are looking for the fastest way to get out of Yukon, so you'd think improving the streets that lead out of town would be a priority.

6. One loser in Allen votes against city proposition

I have no clue where Allen, Oklahoma is located. I also have no clue what city proposition was on the ballot. The only thing I know is one loser obstructionist voted against it:

Yep. It looks like one person in town isn’t going to be invited to the church potluck this Sunday. If you know who this person is, please have him or her contact us. We’d like to give them the opportunity to explain why they went against the grain and voted against such a popular proposal.

7. Ronald Funck narrowly advances to fucking runoff in El Reno School Board Election

Out in the fertile grounds of El Reno, some guy named Ronald Funck finished second in a school board race by the closest margin possible, keeping a dream typo scenario alive for us.

I'll admit I know very little about Mr. Funck. He appears to be a man of mystery. That being said, he does look like his name should be Ronald Funck. 

Hey El Reno Moles. We all need to do everything possible to get Mr. Funck elected. I'll get things started by endorsing Eric Palmer in the runoff. That will probably do the trick.

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We'll keep you advised.
