After earning a bachelor’s degree in Political Science at The American University in Washington, D.C., Councilmember Kate Bierman established her home on the east side of Norman. She is the Senior Director of Public Advocacy for a public affairs firm that facilitates connections between communities and their federal elected representatives while serving on both a state non-profit organization and a private philanthropic foundation. Kate credits the Norman Animal Welfare Oversight Committee on which she served for two years for motivating her to run for City Council.
Ward One includes the area east of 12th Avenue N.E. between Alameda Street and Lindsey Street extending to 48th Avenue S.E. and between 12th Avenue S.E. and 24th Avenue S.E. with the west boundary being Classen Boulevard and State Highway Nine being the southern boundary.
Kate believes the diversity of people and land in Norman’s east side is its best asset and will work to promote and grow the east side in a smart and manageable way. She is committed to improving CART access on the east side, providing families with easily accessible facilities and opportunities for children, and encouraging growth in Norman that reflects the 21st Century society in which we now live. She supports city-wide recycling, improving multi-modal transportation, and growing a vibrant east side.
Councilmember Bierman also serves on the Finance Committee, the Community Planning and Transportation Committee and serves as Chairman on the Oversight Committee. She also serves as Council’s alternate representative to the Oklahoma Municipal League Board.
