EDMOND — Mayor Charles Lamb and Councilmen Darrell Davis and Nick Massey were sworn into office this week by Municipal Judge Diane Slayton.

Lamb, 70, will serve another two-year term. He won the April election, giving him a third full two-year term.

This was Lamb's ninth time to run for city office.

Lamb was appointed mayor in 2011 to fill the unexpired term of resigning Mayor Patrice Douglas. In 2013, he was elected to a full two-year term that ended in May 2015. He was the former Ward 3 councilman.

Davis, 57, representing Ward 3, and Massey, 69, for Ward 4, ran unopposed this time. They will each serve four-year terms.

Davis ran unopposed making this his second full four-year term as Ward 3 councilman. Massey was unopposed in Ward 4 for his second four-year term.

Davis was first sworn into office in November 2011 after being appointed to the Ward 3 job when Lamb was appointed to succeed Douglas, who resigned to become a state Corporation Commissioner. He did not draw an opponent in 2013 when he ran for his first term.

Massey was appointed to the council in 2012 when longtime Ward 4 Councilman David Miller resigned on Jan. 25, 2012. Massey won his first four-year term with 67.4 percent of the vote in 2013.

Longtime Ward 4 Councilman David Miller resigned in Jan. 25, 2012, to take a job out of state. Massey was selected to succeed Miller on March 12, 2012.
