be preserved if possible.

disregarded voters' wishes
recent decision by the Logan County Board to not wait on the
referendum being circulated by voters of Logan County really has
gotten my attention.
of Lincoln, did you know that three board members live within six
blocks of each other and another two board members live on the
same street in another area of the city?
think that if you lived in a certain district, you would have one
person representing you (someone that you could have personal
contact with) rather than all board members (hopefully)
contact all the board members and make your wishes known — that
you want the County Board members elected by district rather than
seven board members must think that they have gotten a lock on
their job. Boy, have I got news for them. Is it an ego trip, power
hungry, money? I don't know.
think, 15 cents (for three minutes) gives you plenty of time to
give these people your opinion over the phone. Or, write letters
board member said nobody called him. Well, now is the time!!
To the editor:
Fak said so much in his article, and I, for one, wish to
thank him for recognizing not only the history of the
building but the fact that we need to support and help to rebuild
our downtown community. I have enjoyed the many businesses
that have been affected by this loss. I hope that they are
all able to rebuild and flourish. These businesses make our
downtown a very enjoyable place to shop while keeping our money in
our own community.
Stauffer writes in
county board really needs to elected by district rather than at
large (as is the case now). Half of the voting population lives
outside of the city of Lincoln. So half of the county board
members should be from the other parts of the county, to have fair
representation. I know some of the present board members try their
best to represent everybody in the county, but if I and some other
voters have problems with one or more board members, we have to
try and get the whole county to dismiss this person from his job
(yes, a county board member is hired by the voters to represent
each county person!). If this certain county board member comes
from my district, it is much easier to get people to run against
this board member and easily defeat him or her. People from
Lincoln cannot have the same kind of wants or desires as, for
instance, the voters of Oran Township or any other town in Logan
in closing, vote for this referendum that is being circulated
around the county, and demand that the county board put this issue
on the ballot, and let all the voters of Logan County decide HOW
we want to be represented!!
