Councilwoman Leirion Gaylor Baird

Lincoln, NE

One of Council’s most important jobs is keeping our city safe. During my tenure on Council, we have increased both the numbers of police and emergency responders and the resources available to them -- ensuring they can respond quickly to our 911 calls no matter where we live in Lincoln.

We are investing in streets at historic levels and repairing sidewalks and more miles of water mains each year. We have kept our commitment to our neighborhoods by increasing residential street improvements. We are getting the job done.

I have worked to enhance our quality of life and support our working families by investing in expanded public transportation, libraries that educate and engage, neighborhood parks, playgrounds, pools, and places like the F Street Rec Center that keep kids involved in positive, safe activities. And I’ve remained committed to aging services like hot meals for seniors and active senior community centers. All of us, regardless of income or zip code, should experience and enjoy our city’s progress.

Lincoln is growing our technology footprint by expanding access to affordable, high-speed internet across the city - helping businesses thrive and students learn. We’ve increased government transparency by committing to make city government data more open and accessible to the public. And our tech-startup community is blossoming, with companies like Nebraska Global and Hudl helping keep our talented young people right here in Lincoln.
