City Councilwoman Leirion Gaylor Baird Taking Credit For
Votes That Did Not Happen
(Lincoln) A lot has been said about the 2015-2016 city of Lincoln budget. Now one Democrat is taking credit for something that didn’t even happen.
Thursday September 24, 2015, City Councilwoman Leirion Gaylor Baird issued an email to her supporters taking credit for unanimous votes that didn’t happen. She is also taking credit for a budget that she voted against.
Her claim is “All of my amendments passed with unanimous support from my colleagues” . In reality, Councilwoman Baird made amendments to the budget resolution, then she voted against the resolution that contained her amendments. Councilwoman Baird has made this budget process divisive and she continues her partisan divide by trying to deceive voters and change history.
This makes us wonder if Councilwoman Baird fully understands her votes or how her votes impacted the budget. Or was she against it until she found out the Mayor would sign the bill?
In her email, Councilwoman Baird gloats about the fact the property taxes will not go down. It’s true that Councilwoman Baird and Mayor Beutlers’ administration were successful in stopping tax relief for the citizens of Lincoln. When you pay your property taxes we suggest that you also send a letter to Mayor Beutler and Councilwoman Baird telling them that you would have rather have had tax relief.
We call upon Councilwoman Baird to stop her dishonest and partisan tactics and start serving the over-taxed citizens of Lincoln.
