Two new faces on the city front    Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 17, 2004]  A new Ward 2 representative was welcomed by the council Monday night. Kathleen "Kathy" Horn replaces Alderman Steve Fuhrer, who left at the beginning of July due to a job change.

Horn resides at 404 S. Jefferson St. She's the mother of six and a single parent. She has been a Lincoln resident for 36 years.

Horn was seated on the side with two-year terms remaining. Four-year terms for the council members sitting on the opposite side of the room are up for election this year.

Police Chief Robert Rawlins was administered the oath of office while his wife, Gail, and two children, Shawn and Kirsten, looked on.

Monday was Chief Rawlins' first day in his new position, though he began his training with Chief Rich Montcalm two weeks ago. "It's been an interesting two weeks so far. It's a lot different than being out on the streets with the officers," he said. Chief Montcalm helped the transition quite a bit and it has gone smoothly, Rawlins said.

The new chief's plan of operation is to continue the developments that were already in process "that advance our department" and move it forward, he said.

"My door is always open like his was," Chief Rawlins said to the council.
