. Wesely, Johnson take primary victories
r By Eric Rineer
After a one-year absence from the
| Nebraska Legislature, former senator
Don Wesely returned to the political
j scene in the grandest of fashion.
Wesely won a landslide victory in
Tuesday’s primary mayoral election as
| he garnered more than 48 percent of the
city’s votes - or 13,958 - per unofficial
\ results Tuesday night.
The Democratic candidate will be
joined by Republican City
Councilwoman Cindy Johnson, who
secured 36 percent of Tuesday’s votes -
or 10,512 votes unofficially.
The turnout for Tuesday’s election
was 23.4 percent - or 29,341 voters out
of 125,345 registered voters.
The victories sent both Johnson and
Wesely to the final leg of the mayoral
race. The two will now square off in the
general election, to be held May 4.
“This is a great result,” said Wesely,
who added that his overall experience
in the Legislature determined the final
outcome of the election.
Wesely, who acknowledged he was
si w —
a little surprised at his wide margin of
victory, said he was eager to build on
the support his campaign has already
mustered to this point.
He said he was confident about the
general election now that the race was
narrowed to him and Johnson.
Wesely said he expected most of the
votes from the three other candidates
involved in Tuesday’s election to come
to his campaign.
The main concern now, Wesely said,
is focusing on the issues most impor

strong faith in God that she had held years
So, in early June, she rededicated her
life to Christ.
That decision caused her to take a
deep look at her morals and how faith can
be affected by them.
Before last summer, her college life
had been a constant struggle.
“I started living a life of sin. I started
drinking, going out and basically living a
party life,” Beach said. “I wasn’t studying
or going to church.
“I was living a life that I knew wasn’t
right m my heart It realty broke me.”

■ Academic Senate brings up
potential problems with the
university’s Master Plan, such as
safety and locations of garages.
By Shane Anthony
Academic Senate members pushed for pas
sage of resolutions Tuesday that indicate some of
them are peeved about parking.
Senators passed a resolution and two emer
gency motions dealing with proposed parking
changes, safety and the Master Plan. Several
senators said they were concerned about a lack
of faculty and staff input in decisions made
about parking and the plan as a whole.
The Master Plan maps UNL’s future look for
the next 12 years and beyond.
Donald Jensen, professor of psychology,
moved to ask that the Master Plan be reconsid
ered with input from the Academic Senate or a
senate subcommittee. Jensen said he was con
cerned about a lack of interest in faculty gover
But T. Jack Morris, director and professor of
biological sciences said several meetings on the
plan were held already. Faculty members were
welcome at the meetings, he said, but few people
Soon after Jensen’s motion passed, Robert F.
Diffendal, professor in the Conservation and
Survey Division, offered another emergency
motion that passed. His motion said the
Academic Senate would support proportional
fee increases for faculty and staff according to
Before senators began debating parking
issues, Keith Zaborowski, Schramm residence
director and a member of the Parking Advisory
Committee, said parking fees will increase by $ 1
a month and then $2 a month to pay for new
parking garages. The Advisory Committee, he
said, had little to do with the fee increase.
