New City of Lawton Finance Director

LAWTON, Okla._Mr. Brooks Mitchell has recently accepted the position of Finance Director for the city of Lawton. City Manager, Bryan Long, is pleased to announce the new addition to the city's staff.

"It is no secret that my position as City Manager is indeed significant when attempting to measure performance and progress within the community, but I would submit to you that having the "resources" to accomplish management's vision statement is of equal, if not greater, importance to the community for which we serve.  This key selection for city management's team is perhaps the most significant development to date when considering our aspirations and challenges over the past couple of years.  Undoubtedly, this key position will assist us in overcoming so many of the common hurdles/obstacles that a growing community like our own will face, and will certainly lead to the highest level of transparency and responsiveness that should be evident to each of you," said Bryan Long.

Mitchell was most recently the Director of Administration for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) where he was instrumental in budget planning, preparation, and presentation to both commission members and state legislators. In addition he also holds an accounting degree from OU and is a currently licensed public accountant registered through the State Board of Public Accountancy.   

Mr. Mitchell will be formally introduced to the city council at the council meeting on Jan 28.
