Vice Mayor Wedman steps down after six years of service
Jenks vice mayor Dr. Joshua Wedman informed city council members Tuesday of his resignation.
Wedman, who has served on city council for six years, cited personal reasons for stepping down. During his tenure, Wedman has held three positions; mayor, vice mayor, and city council member.
“I am truly humbled to have served over six years on city council,” Wedman told the Jenks Tribune. “I’m very proud to have served in leadership for over two of those years. I am fortunate to have been part of moving this city forward.
“Jenks has a lot to be proud of over the last several years. One of this being the outlet mall, another the projects that will help Jenks progress toward the future. The expansions to the aquarium have been phenomenal for our city and region.”
Wedman credits the ‘teams’ he’s worked with in the past for his success and community success.
“I would say it’s always been a team effort, that includes past, present, and future members of council and staff. It’s been an honor to have been part of that team. The time is right for me to place greater attention to my growing family and our business.”
Wedman will now focus his time on his family. When running for council in 2013, his oldest child, Tyler, was around a year-and-a-half and the Wedman’s have had two more children since.
He also practices chiropractic care at Wedman Chiropractic on Main Street in Jenks.
