Q: I am fortunate enough to be a snowbird. We own a condo in Jacksonville, Florida. Our condo is in a development that was purchased by an investor/developer in the late 1980s.

Why are you running for the City Council?

I am running to provide a diverse voice to Lincoln's people and to ensure that our council correctly checks the balance of power within our strong-mayor form of government.

Why are you running for the City Council?

I am running for office because it is an exciting opportunity to restore accountability and the council’s task of oversight, to protect people’s First and Second Amendment rights, promote and aid small businesses, make health decisions based on multiple sources with open and transparent discussion, and support and hold police and citizens accountable. My ultimate goal is to ensure that people's rights are protected. I came to the U.S. 26 years ago from a Communist country where I had no rights.

Why are you running for the City Council?

To give working people a voice and an alternative to the policies of the Democrats and Republicans. Working people need their own party, independent of the capitalist parties. Working people are facing housing evictions, rising joblessness, assaults on wages and working conditions. Working people need to defend political rights so we can fight together for a public works program, to protect ourselves from the capitalist crisis, combat police brutality and attacks on women’s rights.
