[October 20, 2008]  Lincoln resident Nathan Turner has announced his candidacy for a seat on the Lincoln City Council, representing Ward 4.

Turner is currently a project manager for Caterpillar Logistics in Morton. He has extensive experience in economic forecasting, including developing and managing Caterpillar's monthly worldwide $1.5 billion inventory forecast.

Civic"The foresight and long-range planning necessary in corporate America have prepared me in ways that would greatly benefit the city of Lincoln," he said. "Many different factors affect economic growth, and it is crucial that the city council have someone with a sound financial background."

"As a project manager I am responsible for taking ideas and seeing them through from beginning to end, and I am accountable to my team to meet deadlines," said Turner. "The city council has got to work together to get things accomplished. It's great to have ideas, but in order to see change, you've got to have people who are going to plan for our future and put that plan into action."

"Lincoln is ideal for many different types of potential new businesses: distribution, manufacturing, logistics, among others," he said. "The city council should work to grow existing businesses and attract new ones, but Lincoln does not fully utilize technology to market itself to potential businesses and consumers."

Turner, a Republican, was raised in Lincoln and graduated from New Wine Christian High School. He and his wife, Sarah, currently reside in Lincoln. He is the son of Dan and Nancy Turner of Lincoln.

Turner received a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Illinois in 2004 and will complete his MBA from Benedictine University through Springfield College in Illinois in November.
