[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.
"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."
