From the Oklahoma County website:
Carrie Blumert is a public health professional with a desire to reform our criminal justice system and engage more young people and women in local government.
Before getting elected as County Commissioner for District 1, she worked for the Oklahoma City County Health Department for 5 years, managing health care partnerships and community based prevention programs.
Prior to her time at City County Health, Carrie worked for Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma and the OU Department of Behavioral Pediatrics. She has a Masters in Public Health from the OU Health Sciences Center and a Bachelor’s in Child and Family Services from OSU. She graduated from Bartlesville High School and is the first person in her family to be elected to public office.
Carrie spent the majority of her campaign for County Commissioner knocking on thousands of doors in her district, listening to voters, and educating the public on ways a County Commissioner can improve the community.
Her district covers central and northeast Oklahoma City, Spencer, Midwest City, Del City, Jones, Luther, Forrest Park and Lake Aluma.

I am encouraged by our current County Commissioners and their willingness to be in their communities. They are active across social media, visiting those for whom they serve and quickly reply to any questions or comments. Its is a welcome change to how things have been done in the past.
