Seat for which you are running in 2022: Grand Island City Council Ward 4

What are the characteristics you possess which make you the right candidate for this position? My strong background in business management allows me to use a logical approach to make the best decisions possible based on the information that is available. I do my homework and believe in listening to all sides of the issue/debate before making a final decision. That is how we make the best decisions for the community.

Candidate Name: Adam Condon
Seat for which you are running in 2022: Ward 5 city council
What motivated you to run in the 2022 election? I am tired of seeing spineless RINO's talk all like conservatives, then once in office just bend over to to the communist democrats. Or better yet do their best to hurry the sellout along.
What are the characteristics you possess which make you the right candidate for this position? I am a staunch Constitutionalist. Both the state and federal. I judge all federal codes, state statutes, and local ordinances against these documents. That is the foundation of the contract between, we the people, and the government. Right now that contract is being torn up by the democrats and RINO's. Once that contract is destroyed. We the People have the duty and obligation to institute a new form of government. The founding fathers gave a good system of government, however weak and power hungry men and women have been destroying our system of government, in favor of the beast/NWO eugenics form of governance.
 
What impact do you hope to have while serving your term? To fight off the beast/NWO system of governance. Fight against those in our city government that pass ordinances that they have no lawful authority to pass, even temporarily. The Constitutions (federal or state) have no phrases in them, in case of this or that this document can be ignored.
 
What is the best kept secret within our community? The indoctrination of our youth into the beast/NWO eugenics way of life. Do not forget, the beast is made by man. That why it's number is 666. The number 6 is man's number as man was created on the 6th day.
     

Candidate Name: Douglas Lanfear
Seat for which you are running in 2022: City council 5ward
What motivated you to run in the 2022 election? Why am I running for city council? I believe I can do a great job. I question the wisdom of some decisions made by the council lately and I am one who believes in acting, not sitting at home complaining. Four years on the county board has given me a unique perspective on local government.
What motivates me to run are the following.
I believe the make up of the council should reflect the character and diversity of our city.
To me, the job of councilman is a caretaker who is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure and quality of life in Grand Island. This will become harder to achieve with post vivid and rising inflation.
I encourage you to view both my and my opponent's Facebook sites. Adam Cousin's thinking is also a reason I run.

Thank for giving me this oportunity.
What are the characteristics you possess which make you the right candidate for this position? I have experience in local government, I have valuable of contacts from my years on county board, I truly listen to people and consider they views, and am financially conservative.
What impact do you hope to have while serving your term? If there is two things I would like to achieve in my term. I give the residents of Grand Island confidence that the council cares and listens to them. Second, create an environment for small business to thrieve.
What is the best kept secret within our community? I don't know, probably, that the incoming casino will not have have the great impact on visitors which some people think.
