Dear Friend --
Start the new year off right and get involved with the Lancaster County Republican Party. We are devoted to making our county, state and country better from the ground up. By getting involved in the Lancaster County Republican Party, you will be supporting the values of limited government, individual liberty, and personal responsibility that will ensure a prosperous future for ourselves and our families.
We need YOU to help us promote these values in 2017 as we enter a new city election season. This spring we will be voting for new people to sit on the Lincoln Airport Authority, School Board and City Council.
We need your help in supporting the City Charter Amendment proposed by Councilwoman Cyndi Lamm by attending the public hearing this coming Monday December 19th at 5:30pm.
Our current budget process does a disservice to the taxpayer. This proposal will improve our budget process by encouraging more collaboration and cooperation between the mayor and the city council. Overall, it will provide for more transparency and checks and balances. These are important things to the taxpayer.
This is just a quick note to remind you to take action on the Lincoln City Budget.
Tomorrow, August 8th, the Lincoln City Council will have a hearing on the Mayor's proposed budget and changes by City Council members. The changes by Council members were done to avoid an increase in the city property tax levy. We urge you to testify at the meeting and remind the City Council that you have been taxed enough already. The hearing starts at 3:00pm.
At the very least, please contact your City Council Members about your thoughts. They want to hear from you.
The official vote on this ordinance is scheduled for Wednesday, August 10th.
LANCASTER COUNTY GOP CONDEMNS BEUTLER’S VETO
(Lincoln, NE) – Yesterday, Mayor Chris Beutler vetoed the recycling ordinance and held a press conference, calling members of the Lincoln City Council shortsighted, non-transparent, and fiscally irresponsible. Yet the Mayor failed to include all of the facts in his press conference.Read more
On Monday, July 25th, the Lincoln City Council had a hearing on Mayor Beutler's new recycling ordinance. (see video below) The LCGOP Executive Committee believes recycling should remain voluntary in Lincoln. We urge you to contact your City Council Members about your thoughts. They want to hear from you. The official vote on this ordinance is scheduled for Monday August 1st.
Here are several things to consider:
Mayor Chris Beutler is declaring that the City of Lincoln has a budget shortfall of $3.3 million dollars. Rather than opening up the dialogue and investigating additional ways to cut spending, the Mayor wants to either cut eight important city programs or inevitably raise taxes.
Please read the following press release from the four Republican City Council members and stand for more budget transparency and dialogue about different ways to reduce spending.
Please join us for our March 17th LCGOP meeting. Our meeting will run from 6:30-7:15pm. Around 7:15 we will be having the three candidates for the State Legislature in District 25 talk to us.
