- At the end of the Monday night voting session of the Lincoln City
Council, Mayor Marty Neitzel offered up some comments concerning the
future appointment of an alderman to fill the Ward 3 vacancy left by
Neitzel said that when Mourning told the city on March 6th that
he would be resigning his seat, the three mayoral candidates other
than herself had all been notified, and all expressed that if not
elected mayor, they would like to be considered for the position.
After Mourning's resignation had been made public, Neitzel said that
six other ward three residents had notified her that they too would
like to be considered for the seat.
Netzel said she had given this much thought and consideration, and
had interviewed those interested in the seat.
She said after much thought and consideration, she was going to call
an executive session next week so that the sitting aldermen could
interview a selection of those vying for the appointment.
She concluded her statement saying that she would now ask that Kevin
Bateman, Wanda Lee Rohlfs, and Jonie Tibbs, as well as herself "bow
out graciously" and allow the new administration, new mayor, to work
with his new council.
Neitzel left the Council Chambers immediately after adjournment and
was not available for further comment.
