Azar promises transparency, advocacy

Azar promises transparency, advocacy

As a resident of Lincoln for more than 50 years, Town Council District 4 Democratic candidate Pamela Azar said she’s intimately familiar with the issues facing the town, and can be the representative to address them.

“I love Lincoln, and in order to keep it as an enviable place to live, status quo should always be questioned,” Azar said. Azar, who is the endorsed candidate, noted that her opponent stated that he is satisfied with the status quo. “That’s not leadership, that’s management,” she said. “While being a good man, he’s admitted to never attending a Lincoln Town Council meeting.”

She plans to send out quarterly reports to her constituents in an effort to keep them informed, and promised increased transparency from the council regarding public comment at meetings. Azar said she hopes to address concerns regarding the town’s bidding and hiring processes and to negotiate more support from Twin River Casino.
