Spatz will not run for re-election

by Deena Winter

Councilman John Spatz announced today he will not run for re-election to the Lincoln City Council.

Councilman John Spatz

“I have greatly enjoyed my service to the district and I will miss being a part of the City Council. In the last four years my personal and professional responsibilities have grown and will continue to grow. Due to these changing circumstances, I do not feel I will have the time necessary to devote to the City Council. The Northwest district deserves to have a representative that can dedicate adequate time and attention to its needs,” he said in a press statement.

“I am very proud of the City of Lincoln and especially my district,” he said.

So far, the only official candidate for the position representing district 4, or northwest Lincoln, is attorney Carl Eskridge, a Democrat who is a deputy in the state ombudsman’s office.

    I am happy that John Spatz served as a City Councillor. I believe he was good for the City. i am disappointed he won’t be running again but appreciate his candor about providing the service that is expected. It is not easy to do this job. Best wishes to John & his Family.
