Former Husker, radio executive Stan Parker announces bid for Lincoln mayor

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Another contender has thrown his name in the hat for Lincoln’s mayor.

Stan Parker announced Wednesday that he will be running for the office in 2023. Former Nebraska football coach Tom Osborne introduced Parker at the event.

“I am excited to engage with my fellow citizens of Lincoln and with Lincoln’s leaders over the next months, sharing our perspectives and how we can together stand for Lincoln,” Parker said.

Parker is a Bellevue native and former Husker, having played with the team between 1982 and 1986. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Arts in business administration.

In 2009, Parker founded MyBridge, a Lincoln-based radio company which broadcasts Christian content across much of Nebraska. He currently serves as the executive director.

He will run against State Sen. Suzanne Geist. Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird has yet to announce whether she will run for reelection.
