I will miss former mayor, Dick Anderson, and believe our city will be poorer as a result of his absence as mayor.
He was an activist mayor constantly working for the betterment of our city. He was not a “figurehead”. He contributed many unpaid hours and a great deal of energy to keep Lincoln City in good health.
I admire his optimistic attitude, his intelligence, non-stop work ethic and ability to craft thoughtful compromise while skillfully managing city business meetings. His weekly coffee hours throughout the city was evidence of his accessibility to the public, transparency and accountability.
Thank you Dick Anderson.
