What’s this I hear about Deena having a press conference tomorrow?

by Deena Winter

For the first time in my life, I wrote a press release yesterday.
I’ve been on the receiving end of press releases for the better part of 20 years, during my journalism career.
The release just said I’m having a press conference on Thursday. And so began my life on the other side of the press release.
It was interesting because within minutes of hitting “send” on the e-mail, I got a call from Coby Mach, host of KLIN’s Drive Time Lincoln. He wanted to know what the press conference will be about. And he didn’t take my “no comment” for an answer; he pressed me further — like a good reporter should. Perhaps that explains why he was my best competition when I was a city government reporter for the Lincoln Journal Star.
So, yes, I’m having a “presser” tomorrow. And you, dear readers, will be the first to know why. On the record.

    We need more information about Deena’s announcment that she wil run for several political offices.
    Additional information will allow us to misinterpret, spin and make things up about The Announcment.

    I hear through a friend that you’re running for City Council. I think you can beat Jonathan Cook.

    Deena, It’s to bad that we cannot vote for you for the real power in our great state. Yes, you got it. JBM and Old Harv, the pride of UNL.

      “Old Harv” is doing a fine job, thank you.

    Bummed there is not an update. I thought you were in favor of transparency.

    Are we still going to be the “first to know?”
