Lamm, Gaylor Baird give their last pitch to voters

Lincoln mayoral candidates Cyndi Lamm and Leirion Gaylor Baird say their campaigns to succeed Chris Beutler have laid plain the differences in their philosophies and highlighted the high stakes of Tuesday’s election.

Gaylor Baird, a Democrat, believes her experience on the Lincoln City Council and Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission serves her well to continue Beutler's momentum.

But Lamm, a Republican, counters that local government has inserted itself too often in private enterprise under his tenure, and only her experience on the City Council and as a private practice attorney will help cut city taxes and spending that stifles families and businesses.

Voters on Tuesday will pick the successor to the District 1 City Council seat representing Northeast Lincoln held by Lamm. But if Gaylor Baird is elected mayor, the City Council would designate who would fill her at-large seat on the council.

Reporter Riley Johnson talked to both candidates over recent days and asked them to make a last pitch to voters and explain how their individual records prove they can accomplish their agendas.
