Holly Woods-Andreatta and Alyssa Silhi for councilBy: Jim Datzman, Al Roten and Richard Moore
Lincoln will face some serious challenges the next four years. Monitoring a very tight budget, seeking new forms of revenue, and administering new development represent some of the challenges facing our elected representatives. The council will also work with a newly-hired city manager while seeking to find ways to resolve the current personnel shortages in our public-safety services. Local government works best when City Council and city staff function with a mutual respect for each other while performing their respective duties. In the upcoming election, we will vote for the following candidates based on their qualifications and their commitment to improving our community.
Holly’s family has a lengthy history in Lincoln. She and her husband, Mark, have been married for 27 years. They have four children and the youngest attends high school in Lincoln. Holly has a B.A. degree in social science from Bethany College and currently teaches eighth-grade history in Roseville. Being accessible to the community and being aware of its concerns is high on her commitment list. She indicates, “There’s no denying the need to make public safety a real priority for our community.” Holly is focusing on the current city audit in the interest of assuring financial solvency for our future. She quickly points out, “I am not a politician; I am a public servant.”
Alyssa has resided in Lincoln for nine years with her husband and three children. Alyssa has a B.A. degree in English and communications from U.C. Davis. She has 10 years of experience as a private-sector representative working with state agencies on a variety of important issues, including public-safety matters. She currently serves as a City Economic Development Committee member and has demonstrated a clear commitment to well-planned development, safe schools, parks and neighborhoods, and a strong commitment to public safety issues.
We need professional leadership to continue shaping our future and we are confident that these two candidates will provide us with that leadership for the next four years. We hope that you will join us in voting for both Holly and Alyssa for Lincoln City Council.
