Dead Oklahoma mayor to remain on ballot for general election

The Associated Press - February 14, 2019 12:17 pm

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – A dead candidate for mayor of an Oklahoma City suburb has advanced to the general election after coming in second in a three-way primary.
Then-Edmond Mayor Charles Lamb died in December, after filing for the next election cycle. City rules say his name must appear on the April 2nd ballot facing former Mayor Dan O’Neil, who received the most votes in Tuesday’s primary.
If Lamb wins, the City Council would appoint a mayor for the two-year term.
Edmond resident Michelle Schaefer runs a Facebook group supporting Lamb. She referred questions to Councilman Nick Massey, whom she hopes is appointed mayor.
Massey said he would have run for mayor had Lamb not sought re-election. The filing period had closed when Lamb died. He said he would be “honored” if appointed, but would not campaign for people to vote for Lamb.
