District #1 — DOUG EMERY

"I believe that Lincoln is a great place to live and to raise a family. We need to insure that we continue to do things that will keep the city viable and moving forward. We need to continue to cling to our Midwest values, strong work ethic and enhance our strong neighborhood alliances. I want to work to put Lincoln on track to remain Nebraska's number one community well into the 21st century. With the city working together we can insure that we will grow the city, entice more buinesses and provide more jobs."

— Doug Emery
