2019 State of Lincoln Address

2019 State of Lincoln Address

Thank you to the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce for hosting this annual Mayor’s Luncheon. It is truly a privilege to have this opportunity to talk about the community we all are so proud to call home.

Let me ask you a question. What would happen if we were all blunt and used straight talk when we said what was on our minds every day?

Imagine how much less wondering there would be if leaders were forthright about their beliefs and intentions?

I’ll come back to this later.
