After Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert’s reelection announcement, Democrat Mayor candidate Heath Mello immediately went on the political attack, talking in generalities and keeping alive the partisan banter of the past election year that so many are tired of.
At her announcement, Stothert had Republicans and Democrats and people from every part of the city praising and endorsing Mayor Stothert before a packed crowd at UNO’s Scott Conference Center.
But Mello didn’t stop with the local press.
He also took to Twitter (or the Twitter, as Sweeper was fond to say) in response to a citizen’s request:
Which is interesting.
Leavenworth St. has heard that any request the City of Omaha’s Planning Department has ever received for art work on the grain elevators…has been approved.
You can note some of the art on these elevators from Emerging Terrain on their website here.
Our guess is that the political hits from young Mello will keep coming. No word yet on if/when they might be accurate.
Jean Stothert for Mayor
Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert made her reelection campaign announcement Monday evening at UNO’s Scott Conference Center.
You can watch the entire announcement, as well as short clips from the evening at the campaign Facebook page at Facebook.com/JeanforMayor.
But the above referenced Heath Mello took a shot at former Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman as well.
And Heineman apparently struck a nerve with Heath.
Here is what Heineman had to say, in part, while introducing the Mayor…
Our guess is Heineman won’t be worried about talking about his experience in Lincoln with Heath.
