“Mayor Mick” served as Oklahoma City’s mayor from 2004 to 2018, making him Oklahoma City’s longest serving mayor and the first to win four elections. His major accomplishments include helping secure Oklahoma City’s first major league sports team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the passage of MAPS 3, a $777 million quality-of-life infrastructure program to continue the city’s transformation. Cornett also implemented health and wellness initiatives for OKC that gained national attention.
Working in television for 20 years as a sportscaster and later as a news anchor, Mick started his own video productions company, Mick Cornett Video Productions, in 1999. He released his first film, “Oklahoma City: The Boom, the Bust and the Bomb,” in 2016 which explores how Oklahoma City’s turbulent past helped shape its bright, flourishing future. In 2018 he released his first book, "The Next American City," which looks at how American cities are reinventing themselves and redirecting the future of the nation by way of civic engagement, inventive public policy and smart urban design.
