Yes to Lincoln NE Costco at 14th & Pine Lake Road

The Lincoln, NE city council will vote on whether to approve the 14th and Pine Lake Costco on Jan 9. A vocal minority has expressed disapproval of the Costco. However, the majority of Lincoln residents who approve of the Costco have been silent thus far. This is our chance to voice support for the Costco. Due to financial conflicts of interest, only 5 of the 7 city council members will be allowed to vote. In order for Costco to be approved, 4 of the 5 city council members must vote in favor. In addition to signing the petition, please email all of your city council members. I did so this morning, and here's the response I received from one of them: Brian,Thank you for your input. 2 council members have conflicts of interest, leaving 5 to vote. It takes 4 to pass it. I am leaning in support. Your email helps me to balance the negative testimony from neighbors at the meeting last night. Here are the relevant email addresses: clamm@lincoln.ne.gov,jcamp@lincoln.ne.gov,ceskridge@lincoln.ne.gov,lgaylorbaird@lincoln.ne.gov,tfellers@lincoln.ne.gov,mayor@lincoln.ne.gov jraybould@lincoln.ne.gov (not allowed to vote b/c of conflict of interest),rchristensen@lincoln.ne.gov (not allowed to vote b/c of conflict of interest)  Links to recent news articles on the topic: Conflicts of interest surface in Costco vote Planners OK south Lincoln Costco plans first Lincoln location
