Lincoln, NE News, Sports : Journal Star
Newman, one of 12 candidates, endorsed by Journal Star. Visit https://journalstar.com/opinion/editorial/editorial-3-24-journal-star-offers-primary-endorsements/article_37e4b564-8763-5eed-b63f-f5acde68a97c.html for the full story.

I know Elina Newman, her husband Matt, and daughter Anna. They are all performing ballroom dancers right here in Lincoln. Elina’s discipline and commitment to excellence are inspiring to all that see her perform. Dr. Newman, an immigrant success story herself from Baku, Azerbaijan, came to the United States at age 10. Her family, victims of land disputes and religious upheaval, were given the choice “stay and die or leave and live.” Elina will make a conservative difference in local government. I’m going to vote for her, and you should too. — Dan Myers, Retired
