Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

City needs new online site

Send a link to a friend

RestaurantTo the editor:

Thanks to you, the local media, publishing an open letter from the distinguished gentleman Leigh Henson, who greatly cares for the heritage of the community, Lincoln is finally speaking out about the importance of their online site. Not having a professionally designed city website today is like not having windows in your home.

It was never my intention to design without collaboration with the city and citizens. I simply could not get the city to give me their blessing to move on the project.

So while you see a site that functions here today, what I wanted to do for the city and citizens was to gather you together as a community and have you discuss how you wanted your city site to look and function. I would have then taken your ideas and implemented them into a design you would be proud to call your own. It was free to you, but I guess the city did not trust my intentions.

You may not want me (now an outsider) to do the project, but just knowing that perhaps I helped to get the project started will be enough.

Debra Seaman
