2005 OKLAHOMA MAYOR OF THE YEAR
FOR STATE'S SMALLER COMMUNITIES
TULSA - Stan Sallee,
mayor, City of Collinsville, is the recipient of the 2005 Oklahoma Mayor of
the Year Award representing communities with less than 5,000 population. He
was presented the award from the Oklahoma Conference of Mayors (OCOM) at the
Oklahoma Municipal League Annual Awards Breakfast on Sept. 15.
Mayor Sallee has provided a positive and team-building leadership style that
forms bridges and creates a true spirit of cooperation throughout the community.
He has dramatically changed the image of Collinsville into a can-do and progressive
community interested in quality of life for all residents. Mayor Sallee has
brought Collinsville into the larger Tulsa Metropolitan Association of Tulsa
He has the ability to stay focused and keep a positive forward movement for
the city's future while undertaking community building projects in an era
of inconsistent leadership on the city commission and the inherent difficulty
of working with four city managers in three years.
Included in Mayor Sallee's efforts are advocating for a new $2.3 million Fire/EMS/City
Hall Complex at the Vision 2005 Planning Session and convening a meeting of
city, Tulsa County, Cherokee Tribal and State Highway officials to discuss
and commit to major street and bridge construction at both the east and west
gateway entries to Collinsville, resulting in commitments totaling over $5.5
million in new construction. He provides the energetic and visionary leadership
that places principles before personalities, community well-being before personal
gain. Mayor Sallee has convened numerous meetings with citizens, elected officials
and business leaders seeking to foster ventures and cooperative efforts to
improve the capacity to bring services to the citizens of the City of Collinsville.
