Willa Johnson Elected County Commissioner

A belated "Congratulations" to Willa Johnson, elected Tuesday to replace Jim Roth as Oklahoma County Commissioner, District 1. She knows Oklahoma City from her many years of service on the Oklahoma City Council and will do a fine job. Willa is not the first African American woman elected to the position of county commissioner in Oklahoma. Bernice Mitchell (Payne County) and Shirley Darrell (Oklahoma County) come to mind. Am I missing any others?

Mike McCarville has a nice analysis on the election here.
