(MIAMI, OK.) The newest member of the Miami City Council and trustee of Miami Special Utility Authority, Brad Williams, was sworn in as Councilman for Southeast Ward 4 at the August 15th Council meeting.
Williams said he is eager to serve and is ready to get started in this new role.
“I’ve had the same questions and concerns as everyone has and I see the challenges and want to learn more. Everyone wants to get more involved in the community and I thought it was time,” Williams said, “I want to learn processes and how things work at the City and do my part.”
Williams was appointed by Mayor Bless Parker and the appointment was approved unanimously by the Council to replace former Ward 4 Councilman David Davis. Davis resigned at the previous council meeting citing personal and professional reasons.
Williams was born and raised and has lived most of his life in Miami but lived a little of his childhood in a town near Wichita before returning by 3rd grade. He is a 1980 Miami High School graduate, spent two years at NEO, and then served eight years in the Navy in Florida, Idaho, San Diego, Virginia, and Oklahoma City before coming back home.
Williams and his wife Tiffany have three grown sons, their oldest an optometrist with the Navy in Arizona, their middle son an attorney in Oklahoma City, and the youngest son lives locally and owns a operates an automatic boat cover business.
Williams is a local engineer for AT&T and has worked for the company for 23 years.
