Downtown is a hot topic in Lincoln. It has been for decades. For better or worse, we have put a lot of resources into "protecting" and improving Downtown, with mixed results.
A group of Downtown-oriented organizations hosted a City Council candidate forum yesterday, and 10/11 caught the candidates' answers on video. The three short videos are definitely worth watching -- both for the candidates' answers and for how they present them -- so give yourselves 15 minutes or so to check them out.
