Mayoral candidate Cyndi Lamm

City Councilwoman Cyndi Lamm pledged to oppose any and all tax hikes if elected mayor in Lincoln's general election next month.

Released Friday, Lamm's "Taxpayers Protection Pledge" repackaged vows she's made to voters in her bid for the mayor's office, including promises to re-prioritize city spending to reduce property taxes, slash the wheel tax rate, return any tax revenue windfalls from increased property valuations and ensure the new sales tax revenue for city roads goes to residential street repair.

Lamm, an attorney, has positioned herself as the candidate of change as she seeks to succeed Chris Beutler, who could not seek a fourth term because of term limits.

"I am making this pledge and asking the voters to give me a chance to end two decades of tax-and-spend policies in Lincoln," Lamm, a Republican, said in a news release. "I want them to hold me accountable to this pledge."

Lamm will face City Councilwoman Leirion Gaylor Baird, a Democrat, in the general election May 7.
