Looks like a pretty easy election to get through in Lincoln City. Just three seats have challengers and the fourth seat has a non-incumbent filing.
For the Mayor’s race (current Mayor Dick Anderson is running for county commission) City Councilor Roger Sprague is running for that seat, being challenged by Donald Williams. Williams is the owner of the Nelscott Cafe and is a prominent member of the business community.
For City Council Ward 1, it’s Susan Wahlke vs. Nathan Long – Wahlke a legal secretary and has been a member of the Lincoln City Budget Committee, as well as the budget committee for the Devils Lake Water Improvement District. Nathan Long has served on the city planning commission.
In Ward 2, it’s Riley Hoagland vs. Jim Davis – Davis of Central Coast Builders, Hoagland a current member of the city budget committee.
In Ward 3, it’s Kip Ward all by his lonesome, so unless some write in candidate out polls him, he’s got the job. Ward runs The Historic Anchor Inn at the south end of town.
