Emery to make it official Thursday

by Deena Winter

No big surprise here, but Councilman Doug Emery will formally announce plans to run for re-election to his seat on the City Council representing northeast Lincoln at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Engine House Cafe in Havelock.
So far the only other announced candidate for District 1 is Melissa Hilty, who is a Legislative Aide to State Sen. Ken Schilz.
Another possible candidate for the northwest district 4 now represented by John Spatz is still not sure he’s going to jump into the race. Kyle Michaelis — best known as editor of a progressive blog called the New Nebraska Network — still says he is “seriously considering” running.

    Kyle would make a great city councilman. His blog is progressive, but he often disagrees with the mainstream progressive establishment on key issues. I don’t think there’s ever been a private citizen who wasn’t a political staffer with the sort of knowledge that Kyle has. Brilliant man, Lincoln needs someone like him.
