Quotes from Aaron Lincoln in Sergeant Bluff Advocate article by Alexandra Krula: “I don’t have a lot of training specifically in government yet. I am kind of in a unique spot where a lot of the administrators of the past would have had degrees in the field where as my qualifications come from the city planning, city engineering and I have managed an office within a private firm. The city has a lot of projects in the works where I will be able to utilize my skills to benefit the community. Being an engineer I can provide services to lessen the burden on the tax payers. Also, with having experience in a consultant firm, I have built connections and relationships with the county and surrounding communities which is another component that will benefit the community. Being involved in the community is more than a job for me, it is a passion to make the community the best we can with the resources and the people we have, and I’m excited for the growth and opportunities we have ahead, and I am excited to serve.”
