Ready to Be Ward 7’s Voice
Radio Co-Host Vies for A
Seat on the City Council
Special to the Chronicle
Lifelong Ward 7 resident Nikki Nice said she is ready to use her familiar voice to be a voice for her community.
“I am running to represent Ward 7, because I have a true love for my community,” the City Council candidate said, “and I believe I have had a unique opportunity to listen to the issues facing Ward 7 residents.”
Miss Nice, is best known as a member of the Perry Broadcasting team and for co-hosting “The Open Mic Talk Show,” a weekday morning local, state and current events broadcast which airs in Oklahoma City, Lawton and Tulsa.
“I have had the opportunity of hearing citizens’ concerns,” the candidate commented.
“I have talked with people whenever I am in the community, hearing what they have to say.
“With those concerns, I have been able to help find solutions, regardless of the Ward in which they may reside.”
Miss Nice, who attended Millwood public schools from preschool to eighth grade, graduated from Northeast High School and graduated from Langston University with a bachelor of science degree in broadcast journalism.
“Education has helped me to not only understand myself,” the Ward 7 City Council said, “but the community of which I am a part.
“Without education, we are unable to be true participants in the change that we seek.”
As a graduate of Northeast High’s biomedical sciences program, Miss Nice said education is “the cornerstone and stepping stone to a community’s success.”
“I would like to focus on a more concerted effort with programs like Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics Program,” she stated, “to support the schools and children in the ward, while encouraging them to invest and take pride in their community.”
Miss Nice has been active in Ward 7 and in the greater Oklahoma City community, and has studied in west Africa.
The popular talk-show cp-host said she learned that our community is comprised of those whose lives we touch even if we never meet them.
“My favorite quote is one that I read while in Africa by Sir Alfred Tennyson, the poet,” Miss Nice said.
“I am a part of all that I have met,” Tennyson wrote.
“That is a true sentiment that I carry when I have a conversation with anyone, whether it is a first encounter or regular conversation;” Miss Nice said.
This candidacy is not her first foray into the arena of impacting the policies that affect her community.
As a member of the Democratic National Convention Platform Committee in 2016, Miss Nice traveled to Orlando, Fla., to help develop and pass what she said is “one of the most progressive platforms in party history.”...subscribe to the blackchronicle newspaper
