Re: In 2018, the US Census will be redefining CSA and MSA areas...

Lincoln better get annexing to make it bigger for us we have done our part! Btw why hasn't Lincoln annexed as liberally as Omaha has? There's a problem there. Lincoln actually does annex pretty liberally. Only about %10 of the population of Lancaster county (30,000 people) lives outside of Lincoln ...

I mean honestly as a fairly liberal Democrat who voted for Sanders in the primary I'm perfectly happy with this outcome. Stothert has proven herself to be a good centrist mayor and not one to walk the party line.
