Midtown is drawing in a lot of interesting characters and residents these days. Photographers. Stylists. Artists. Chefs. Self-made business folks. Humanitarians. Creatives of all varieties. And now, mayoral hopefuls.
City councilman Dr. Ed Shadid has made Midtown his new campaign headquarters home. He’s right in the middle of the flourishing H&8th stretch of our district, and he’s equipped with a ping pong table (seriously, he has some killer ping pong skills).
After sitting down with him recently, we learned about his love of all things OKC, his hopes for future place-making around the city and why fostering our communities is vital.
And most importantly, why he chose to become our newest neighbor.
