The recently elected Mayor of the City of Lincoln, Seth Goodman, hopes to bring people together in his first time in the local political arena.
Never imagining himself getting into politics, Goodman, a realtor in Lincoln, explains he wanted to bring a young and fresh perspective to the community.
One of Goodman's biggest goals is to bring the community together. He explains Lincoln has people that can't seem to see eye-to-eye but wants to get everyone on the same page despite the differing perspectives.
According to Goodman, people need to get involved and hopes community leaders will make themselves accessible to residents.
Many communities struggle with finding development, especially downtown. While Goodman hopes to bring in more businesses, he hopes to support what is already in Lincoln. He wants to make the community more aware of what is already in Lincoln and keeping business local instead of people going to Springfield or Bloomington/Normal and other places.
