CF)--There will be a number of Enid Municipal and Garfield County School Board races coming up February 9th. Another candidate has filed to run in the February recall against Ward 3 Enid City Commissioner Ben Ezzell. Enid resident Kent Rorick filed on Wednesday, the last day to file to run in both the recall and the regular elections. Keith Siragusa also filed in both Enid races Monday at the Garfield County Election Board office. Ezzell also will run in the recall battle to hold his seat for the remaining three months, after which he will term out of office and the winner of the regular ward election will be sworn in. The other two Enid City Commission ward races will have three candidates on the ballot. Ward 6 resident Michael Shuck filed Wednesday to run against Ryan Redd and Scott Orr for the seat currently held by Commissioner David Mason, who will not run for another term. Mason said he is moving out of the ward soon, so he will be unable to hold the commission seat. Incumbent Ward 4 Commissioner Jonathan Waddell will seek a second four-year term, having filed Tuesday. Waddell will face off against challengers Whitney Roberts, who filed Monday, and Loyd C. Kaufman Sr., a former commissioner, who also filed Tuesday.

 

Enid Public Schools Board of Education members Matthew Sampson, Office 1, and Kyle Whitehead, Office 6, also will face challengers in February. Rhonda Harlow, a former instructional coach for EPS, is vying for Office 1 against Sampson. Chad McDaniel filed Tuesday for the Office 6 seat currently held by Whitehead. Enid residents Todd Reilly and Dustin Baylor will both run for Office 1 seat on the Chisholm Public Schools Board of Education.

TW)--An Enid woman was told to leave the Suddenlink Communications local store by police after she refused to wear her mask inside the business last Friday. According to Enid News and Eagle, the incident is the first and only report so far related to the city of Enid’s mask mandate, which went into effect Dec. 2. Authorities said Enid police officers responded Friday afternoon to a call of an unwanted guest who was causing issues at the business in the 2300 block of West Garriott. According to the incident report, police made contact with a Suddenlink employee, who said she asked a customer to put on a mask, per store policy, but the unnamed woman said she had a right not to wear it. After a few minutes back and forth, the employee called the police. The employee said she would like to trespass the woman from the store, according to the report. The woman said she had a medical condition that prevented her from wearing a mask, and that because of HIPAA, she did not have to provide a letter or disclose the condition. She then was advised she was trespassed from the business and said she understood. The woman was not cited for the incident, but was officially trespassed on police dispatch. The first trespassing offense is a warning, when the person is officially trespassed, according to EPD spokesman Cass Rains. On the second offense, the person could be arrested, booked and released, and can be ordered to pay a $250 fine and court costs. Enid’s mask mandate declaration, set to expire after Feb. 28, requires face coverings in indoor, public settings, consistent with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This does not include persons such as those for whom a mask would impair an existing health condition, with developmental disabilities and with a disability that makes masks impractical.
