City of Lincoln
2005 Media Releases
“The residents of Lincoln have much to be thankful for this on this Thanksgiving Day. Lincoln is growing. We have at least 1,300 more jobs than a year ago. We have great schools, low crime and outstanding parks. We just opened 84th Street, and we recently celebrated the reopening of Holmes Lake. We’re moving forward on plans for 48th and “O” streets, a new Harris Overpass and a potential new arena. Every day, we are showing that Lincoln is truly the community of opportunity.
“As we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you will remember our brave soldiers who are away from home on this holiday. Remember too the homeless and needy in our community who need our support.
“As Mayor, I am thankful for the many people in Lincoln who work every day to make this community a great place to live. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.”
