Karleskint earns taxpayer support

Actions speak a lot more eloquently than promises, especially for those we elect to public office. That’s why I am supporting Dan Karleskint for Lincoln City Council.

As a member of the (Lincoln) Fiscal Sustainability Committee, Dan stood tall for Lincoln taxpayers in calling for contracting Lincoln’s waste disposal service to private business.  This action would save the city hundreds of thousands of dollars — funds that could be used to hire more police officers to patrol our neighborhoods and stop the thieves who have been victimizing local homes.

Contracting our trash services would also reduce Lincoln’s future pension debt that the city would otherwise have to pay for employees to do the same job.  This proposal would truly have been a win-win for our city’s taxpayers.

This Lincoln voter will be casting my vote for Dan Karleskint for City Council.  He’s truly the taxpayer’s best choice!
