[September 17, 2016]   "The day I walked into Lincoln Community High School and started teaching, little did I know the impact this career would have on me.

It instilled such a deep affection for this community and for the people who live and work here. Just being a Railer fan, teaching, counseling, being involved with the Pom Pon Squad and directing musicals created a bond with so many people. It is part of why my commitment and involvement has lead me to this point of wanting to be Mayor of Lincoln.”

Rohlfs served as an Alderman from 2005 to 2009, also as director of the Main Street Lincoln program for 7 years. She taught at LCHS for 38 years and continues to serve on many area organizations in a leadership role. She is a graduate of Hartsburg-Emden High School with a Bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University, a Master’s degree from Sangamon State University, and an advanced certificate in Education Administration from U of I Springfield.

My consistent attendance at City Council meetings along with changes in city policies and procedures lead me to believe that what was being communicated to the citizens lacked clarity, openness, and responsibility. I want the people of Lincoln to become more aware of decisions being made, and, hopefully, become more involved in the process of making those decisions.

Three areas became significant to Rohlfs for this election: due diligence, transparency, and accountability. “A common thread citizens are relating is the need for “Making Lincoln Home Again.” A disconnected feeling, a lack of pride, and a lack of ownership has been created for many residents. My goal as Mayor of Lincoln, is to bring back stability, equality, authenticity and accountability to the citizens.”
