My Message

“I am running for City Council to be a voice for working people,” Shobe said. “Lincoln is a great place to live, but we have to make sure that our high quality of life is available to people from all walks of life, not just those at the top. I want to make sure that someone is listening to the people of Lincoln and will truly hear their concerns.”

Equal Before Law

Issues

“Lincoln has a low unemployment rate, but that isn’t the full story,” Shobe said. “People are working multiple jobs, and many haven’t seen a raise in years. On top of that, many people are struggling to deal with the fact that housing costs are rising faster than their wages, and they are being pushed out of their neighborhoods. These are issues that must be addressed by a City Council that works for the people, and I will work toward that goal every day.”
