Boosalis said she is not prepared for the city
to plan for the 325,000 population figure that
has been projected for Lincoln by 2000.
"I questioned early in the game this 325,000
figure and am not prepared to plan with that
figure," she said. "I don't know any other figure.
That's 25 years away and just as past forecasts of
population have changed, this too could."
She said it is very important for Lincoln to
urbanize toward the north, south and west
before going east into the Stephens Creek area.
Low income and elderly housing in Lincoln
are a "real problem," she said, but problems with
housing for the middle income also exist.
She said that she did not know if the city
government could help these people, though,
because of inflation, and increased interest rates
Jo Bragg said her major concern is what she
called a lack of leadership in city government.
"The city only acts in crisis situations," she
said. "There is a lack of leadership and
responsiveness, and a void of action on the city's
Bragg, a 30 year-old mother of four, was
especially critical of advisory reports done foi
the mayor and city council which she said were
She said one such report was that on police
policies and procedures in 1972, when Lincolnite
Cleveland Randolph charged the department
with mistreatment during his arrest.
"Now here we are again and now we're (city
residents) paying $50 an hour for it,"she said.
Attorney James Bruckner is just concluding a
city council investigation for the city council on
the Lincoln Police Department's policies in
She said police policies should come under the
review of a police commission composed of a
variety of citizens.
Bragg said the major issue in her campaign is
equalization of county and city car taxes by
starting a city street use tax, which she said
would defer the cost of the motor vehicle tax
which is now placed entirely on city residents,
and not on county residents living outside the
city but working in Lincoln.
Bragg worked as economic and manpower
coordinator for the Lincoln Action Program for
nine months last year, resigning because she said
the organization was unstructured. Bragg said she
also has been on the mayor's Goals and Policy
Committee, worked at the Malone Center for
underpriviledged youth (1971) and has worked
as a volunteer policewoman since 1973.
Bragg is proposing that the Housing
Relocation Office, the Housing Authority and
the city's housing officer be merged into a
housing authority. .
She said housing should be the issue which
interests and affects students most. "They're
(students) getting ripped off, over charged, and
are overlooked because they have not become
involved or got out and voted," she said.
The growth pattern of the city should be
concentrated in the North and West, Bragg said.
She said there is much city-owned land in these
areas which is not yet developed.
Another issue she said has not been acted
upon is city parking. Bragg said her two
opponents have not suggested where more
downtown parking can be found.
She suggested future parking be allowed only
on the perimeters of the city, with shuttle
transportation to downtown. However, Bragg
sard she would not propose elimination ot
downtown parking now available.
Bragg said the Centrum project and the
proposed Northeast Radial are not "dead issues."
Study for the radial is now being done by the
mayor's Highway Study Committee, Bragg said,
adding that she is opposed to the plans because
too many houses would be displaced and tax
money would be used to "throw people out of
