In 2016, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett will be known around the country as “America’s mayor.”

NewsOK.com reported that in 2014, he was named second vice president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. This year, he’s serving as vice president under the organization’s first black female president, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the mayor of Baltimore, Maryland. Next year, Cornett will serve as conference president.

Members of the organization must be mayors of cities with at least 30,000 residents.

Cornett was elected mayor of OKC in 2004. During his time as mayor, he has challenged residents to get healthy and exercise, has overseen multiple MAPS projects and has made education and jobs priorities.
