Mayoral candidate and Lincoln City Council member Cyndi Lamm is raising questions about taxpayer money being used to run a campaign promoting raising taxes on Lincolnites and visitors for street improvements.

Lamm thinks the idea of the city putting $187,000 behind the campaign effort is wrong, saying quote-“No matter what side of the tax increase you are on, you need to question spending our hard-earned tax money this way.”

The city recently announced they will spend in excess of $260,000 on the campaign to raise the city sales tax by a quarter cent.

City officials are hosting an open house tomorrow night from 5 to 7 at Belmont Elementary School and one on Wednesday during the same time at Irving Middle School to learn more about the proposed sales tax increase.
