Kyle Hurley is a lifelong Norman resident and dedicated public servant who is excited to become the next councilman for Ward 7.

Growing up in Norman, I know first-hand the kind of experiences our city can provide for its citizens. I hope to champion initiatives that not only encourage people to stay and contribute here as I have, but to consider coming to Norman to start a career, raise a family, or enjoy the fruits of their labor later in life.”

Kyle has 19 years’ experience as a medical provider, business developer, and manager with the Norman Regional Health System. He currently serves as System Manager of Emergency Departments for NRHS, overseeing day to day operations and managing 160 employees at all three of Cleveland County’s emergency rooms. Previous to his current role, Kyle worked as a Paramedic, where he quickly rose to the rank of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Supervisor and was honored with the Paramedic of the Year award by Norman Crimestoppers.

Kyle has served the Norman community throughout his life. Even before pursuing a medical career, he served on the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross from 1996-1999 and was an instructor-trainer who taught others the skills needed to teach first aid and CPR. He is also the current Vice President of the Norman Rotary club, which has helped a number of organizations in Norman, including the Center for Children and Families, Inc., Transition House, Mary Abbott Children’s House, Bridges, the Sooner Theatre, and Norman Public Schools.

Kyle hopes to bring his spirit for service above self to the city council, where he can encourage others to dedicate themselves to building a more vibrant community. “Growing up in Norman, I know first-hand the kind of experiences our city can provide for its citizens.” Hurley says. “I hope to champion initiatives that not only encourage people to stay and contribute here as I have, but to consider coming to Norman to start a career, raise a family, or enjoy the fruits of their labor later in life.”
