Norman mayor calls for direct federal aid to city amid coronavirus pandemic

Norman Mayor Breea Clark is calling on state lawmakers to help cities like Norman get direct federal aid amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Clark took to Facebook Sunday night, Latest Oklahoma News asking Congressman Tom Cole, Sen. Jim Inhofe, and Sen. James Lankford to fight for Oklahoma cities in Washington D.C.

Clark said the Norman city council is expecting a considerable budget shortfall this year due to the COVID-19.

Congress recently passed the CARES Act that provided direct assistance to cities with populations over 500,000, but Clark said Norman does not qualify. She said Norman must wait and see if our state legislature will pass on this aid to cities and counties of smaller populations.

“Norman needs the help of our federal delegation now more than ever,” Clark said in the post Press Release Distribution Service. “We implore you, Representative Cole and Senators Inhofe and Lankford, to support legislation that will provide direct federal aid to cities, towns, and villages like Norman.”

Clark ended her call to action by saying to lawmakers: "Don't let us down."
