Why are you running and what do you want to accomplish?
Strong partnerships between visionary business leaders, a fiscally responsible City Hall and committed citizens have played a key role in making Lincoln’s trajectory of growth and success possible. Using my experience as a Planning Commissioner, business and budget analyst and nonprofit board member, I will build on that success by working to ensure Lincoln has safe and vibrant neighborhoods, thriving families, great jobs and economic opportunity. To accomplish this, I plan to:
* Work with city departments and community stakeholders to ensure excellent police and fire protection, address problem properties, repair sidewalks and repave local streets. We should protect parks, pools, trails and libraries that make our neighborhoods wonderful places to live;
* Help build a community where children succeed and families thrive. I support Community Learning Centers. Families in need must have access to the resources that build their capacity to improve their lives; and
* Support investment in infrastructure and technology that build a city where businesses want to locate and grow. Lincoln must continue to build the downtown and Haymarket areas to support our unique local businesses and encourage tourism. We should strengthen and expand our partnerships with UNL and the Innovation Campus to create high-paying jobs.
