Lincoln voter guide: LPS board


LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The race is on for the Lincoln Public Schools Board of Education.

Subdistricts 2, 4 and 6 are on the ballot.

There are only two candidates in each district, so they will all advance from the April 4 primary to the May 2 general election.

Subdistrict 2

Piyush Srivastav wants to help protect and strengthen the schools and ensure that students, parents and teachers have the resources they need to succeed, according to his website.

Emmy Pollen has worked in education over a decade. She wants to improve the treatment of teachers and improve the curriculum to help students become more proficient in reading, writing and math, according to her website.

Subdistrict 4

Annie Mumgaard is running for a third term against Alaina Brouillette.

Mumgaard told Channel 8 that there is important work that needs to be continued, completed and started.

“We are in a time of change,” she said. “And steady leadership is what’s needed, and I’m ready for four more years.”

Brouillette told Channel 8 that she wants to “give back to the community.”

She said she wants decisions to involve the facility, staff and parents and not be based on the school board alone.

Subdistrict 6

Dr. Bob Rauner is seeking reelection to the board. He believes that his skills that were used during the pandemic to improve health and data evaluation can also improve how LPS serves its students.

His challenger, Richard R. Aldag IV, will “hold fast to conservative values and do the right things for our students,” according to his website. Aldag supports pay incentives for priority teacher positions and says he is an ally for parents and teachers of special education students.
