I have been a solid and outspoken supporter of our city manager (Matt Brower) and am very sorry to see him leave.
My experience with him has been very positive.
I do understand that a very small group of citizens have been outspoken against him. Most citizens are unaware of the controversy.
Lincoln is definitely the loser in Matt’s decision to leave. If the city is lucky, maybe in a couple of years, it can get back to where it already was with a great city manager.
The city has many issues that it needs to be addressing in the coming years. With the time it will take and the disruption it will cause, the city will absolutely be working on the wrong problem!
