Hosted by: Omaha Public Schools Career Center
Speaker: Mayor Jean Stothert, City of Omaha
Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert is in her fourth year as mayor. Elected in 2013, she is the 51st Omaha mayor and the city's first woman to be elected to the office.
Mayor Stothert's priorities are public safety, managing the city budget, job growth and economic development and improving the taxpayer experience -- so that every citizen receives excellent customer service when they interact with city government.
In her first three years in office, Mayor Stothert has reduced the property tax rate twice, increased funding for the police department to hire dozens of new officers, improved city services and worked with the Omaha City Council to grow the city's population and tax base through annexation.
She believes in open, transparent government and gets the most satisfaction from helping people solve problems.
Stothert grew up in the St. Louis area and worked as a critical care nurse and later as head nurse and department head of cardiovascular surgery at St. Louis University, where she met her husband, Joe Stothert, M.D.
In 1993, the Stothert family moved to Omaha from Galveston, Texas, when Dr. Stothert accepted a new position at Creighton University.
When the Stotherts' two children, Elizabeth and Andrew, were old enough to go to school, Mayor Stothert became involved in their schools as a volunteer. Later, she was appointed and then elected to the Millard Board of Education and served 11 years, including three as President. In 2009, she was elected to the Omaha City Council, representing District 5 in southwest Omaha.
Meal will start at 11:30, with Mayor Stothert to speak promptly at noon.
Seating is limited, please be sure to reserve your seat! We look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP Friday, February 17th!
