Sand Springs City Councilwoman Christine Hamner has resigned her seat as of July 5th, having moved outside of her ward. The City is currently taking applications for a new Councilor, and will make a decision at their August 26th meeting.
Hamner was sworn in for a three-year term in May of 2017. She recently helped open a Landmark Recovery substance abuse treatment facility in Tulsa, where she is director of outpatient services.
Because there is less than a year remaining in the term, City Council has decided to appoint a replacement rather than spend the time and money on a special election. The regular election for the seat will be held in February.
Applicants for the vacant seat must be a resident of the ward and must be at least 25 years of age. Anyone who would like to be considered for the position should visit the City Municipal Building and request a Board Appointment Form from the City Clerk.
In the event that Council is unable to decide upon a replacement by September 3rd, a special election will be held.
