FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I am running for City Council for a few reasons.


One, I truly love Lincoln and have a strong conviction to run for office.


Two, it is exciting that I have life experiences that will benefit Lincoln.


Three, I can relate to a lot of Lincoln residents because I am an immigrant-refuge, a small business owner, an educator, a healthcare professional, and a conceal-and-carry permit owner.

The Lincoln City Council seats are supposed to be non-partisan. Political division is not fruitful for what the City Council is tasked to do. So, it is a reasonable and well-thought-out decision based on city regulations.

Lincoln citizens must be able to speak out without considering a specific party, and conversations must occur without the influence of a party or feelings. That is how I plan to be as a City Council member.

Being “non-partisan” describes a separation from the constraints of political parties. There are, unfortunately, rules for certain parties that exclude non-partisans. Even though that goes against their statements of alleged inclusion, it is understood that they have national constraints and policies in place.

I want to be the best candidate I can be for you, whoever you might be.

Of course, if a future situation requires me to declare a partisan affiliation, I will do so at that time. But, for now, I will remain non-partisan, true to myself, and true to you during the April and May 2023 Council race.

I trust my election will happen with your blessing if I am meant to become a City Councilwoman.

In my opinion, defunding the police is not good for your safety, for my safety, and for the safety of our children.

 

A woman should be able to protect herself. It is her decision.

I’m opposed to the death penalty.

I am personally pro-life and am convinced that life begins at conception.


A heartbeat can be detected as early as 5.5 weeks and by all medical definitions, the baby is alive.


I believe every life is precious, regardless of the circumstance.

I have many questions about how that is all going to work, and until I get answers to those questions, I will not be able to give an opinion either way. My questions include the following:

    • What have we learned from the opioid crisis?
    • What will we do differently to ensure that appropriate controls are in place?
    • How are we going to keep this “medical” (intention of the bills) rather than “recreational”?
    • What does the process look like from the professional who prescribes it to the person who uses it?
    • Who will dispense the product? Pharmacies can’t since it is a federally illegal substance.
    • How will the financial issues be handled? Banks can’t hold these accounts because they are FDIC-insured.


I will add more questions as I begin dissecting the legislative bills. I can see good and bad. 

All addresses are required to have legible house numbers that are viewable from the street.

 

In cases where that is not happening, I would work with the city planning to see what we can or should do.
