Artist wants to sign audit petition for Lincoln Arts

-A +A
In art, we trust. As a former Lincoln Arts member, I would like to add my name to the growing list of concerned citizens that have asked for a complete financial audit of this organization (see Lincoln News Messenger, July 29, front page, “Lincoln Arts asked for audits). My years of membership, countless hours of volunteerism and numerous occasions of donating my artwork for fundraising, primarily to raise funds to pay off the former Lincoln Arts building, should let this request be counted right alongside the current membership votes. This original building was subsequently sold and the funds placed into the Lincoln Arts coffers. My fear is, under the current administration, that this valuable “community nest egg” has been disappearing and there will be nothing left in the end but an “empty shell.” Ronald Peetz, Lincoln
