Heath Mello, Jean Stothert move on to General Election

1%.

DAVID: WE ARE AT THE SCOTT CONFERENCE CENTER, WHERE MAYOR JEAN STOTHERT HAS JUST TAKEN THE STAGE AND IS ABOUT TO ADDRESS A ROOM FULL O EXCITED SUPPORTERS AFTER SEEING THE NUMBERS COME IN ALL NIGHT LONG.

>> I APPRECIATE YOUR ONGOING COUNSEL AND YOUR FRIENDSHIP.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT.

HOW DO TONIGHT? — HOW DID WE DO TONIGHT? [APPLAUSE] THE PRIMARY RESULTS THAT'S WHAT I SEE AND HEAR EVERY DAY IN OMAHA.

CITIZENS SUPPORT PROGRESS WE ARE MAKING IN FIGHTING CRIME AND VIOLENCE.

THEY ARE HAPPY OUR ECONOMY IS STRONG AND OUR CITY IS WELL-MANAGED.

FOUR VERY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OMAHA.

OMAHA IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK.

TONIGHT, AND A FIVE WAY RACE, THE MAJORITY VOTED TO SUPPORT THE PROGRESS THAT WE' MADE IN THE GOALS AND VISION HAVE HAD FOR THE NEXT FOU YEARS.

[APPLAUSE] SO THANK YOU.

IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS — IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS, WE WITHSTOOD NEGATIVE ADS, SOME PAID FOR BY ANONYMOUS DONORS THROUGH AN UNKNOWN CORPORATION.

BUT WHAT DID WE DO? WE STAYED POSITIVE.

I WANT TO REVIEW A SHORT NOTE THAT I RECEIVED FROM A VOTER.

IT READS THI “I WANT TO THANK MAYOR STODDARD FOR HER TASTEFUL, POSITIVE AT.

SHE MAKES IT A POINT TO EXPRESS HER GOALS INSTEAD OF SPENDING TIME ON OTHER CANDIDATES SHORTCOMINGS.

YOU HAVE MY VOTE.

— YOU HAVE MY VOTE.

” OVER THE NEXT FIVE WEEKS, IT IS TO DISCUSS THE FUTURE OF OMAHA AND HOW WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER WORKING TOGETHER.

SPEAKING OF ADS, MY OPPONENT IN THE GENERAL ELECTION IS RUNNING A COMMERCIAL IN WHICH HE SAYS “OMAHA IS DOING JUST OK.

” MY FIRST THOUGHTS WERE, THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.

BUT MY SECOND THOUGHT WAS, WE ARE DOING BETTER THAN OK.

[APPLAUSE] THE RESULTS SHOW THA TONIGHT, AND THAT THE VOTERS AGREE.

MAKE NO MISTAKE, OMAHA IS OPTIMISTIC AND CONFIDENT, NOT BECAUSE OF ONE PERSON OR A POLITICIAN OR A POLITICA PARTY OR A GROUP AT CITY HALL.

OMAHA IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK BECAUSE OF THE WORK OF MANY INDIVIDUALS AN GROUPS DEDICATED TO A CITY FOR OMAHA, BETTER JOBS , MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR YOUTH, AND A MORE VIBRANT DOWNTOWN.

JULIE: MAYOR JEAN STOTHERT VERY UPBEAT ABOUT HER LEAD TONIGHT.

HEATH MELLO THANKED HIS SUPPORTERS JUST OVER AN HOUR AGO.

ROB: KRISTYNA ENGDAHL IS THERE LIVE WITH TH CAMPAIGN NEAR 27TH AND L.

KRISTYNA: WE KNO NOW HEATH MELLO WILL BE ONE OF TWO PEOPLE TO MOVE ON TO THE MAYORAL RACE.

FIRST OFF, WHAT DO THESE PRIMARY RESULTS SAY TO YOU? >> TONIGHT'S PRIMARY RESULTS SHOW US THAT MORE THAN 50% OF THE CITY RIGHT NOW VOTED FOR CHANGE.

THEY WANT NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE MAYOR'S OFFICE MOVING FORWARD.

FOR US, WE KNOW WE'VE GOT MORE WORK TO DO.

WE HAVE 35 DAYS, A LOT OF CAMPAIGNING AND DOORKNOCKING AND PHONE CALLS.

WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO CONTINUE OUR CAMPAIGN.

KRISTYNA: YOU CAN HEAR THAT EXCITEMENT RIGHT NOW AND BACKGROUND.

WHAT IS NEXT LOOKING FORWARD TO MAY? >> WE HAVE TO CONTINUE OUR GAME PLAN TO MOVE US DAY BY DAY CLOSER TO THE GENERAL ELECTION.

WE KNOW THERE IS THE A CONSIDERABLE NUMBER MORE PEOPLE WHO VOTE, AND A KISS IS THE ABILITY TO TAKE OUR MESSAGE O BUILDING THE OMAHA OF THE FUTURE TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.

THERE'S A STYLISTIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ME AND THE MAYOR.

I DON'T TAKE A MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY APPROACH, AND WE HAVE TO HAVE SOMEONE WHO IS A TRUE CONSENSUS BUILDER IN CITY HALL, WHO CAN BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS A SEAT AT THE DECISION-MAKING TABLE.

KRISTYNA: OBVIOUSLY THERE WILL BE MORE RESULTS AS THEY COME IN.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THEM? >> WE FEEL GREAT.

WE KNOW WE WERE WORKING TOWARDS MAY 9, BUT TONIGHT'S RESULTS SHOW WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GENERATE AN AWFUL LOT OF SUPPORT AND ENTHUSIASM ACROSS THE ENTIRE CITY.

IT IS OUR FIRST STEP MOVING CLOSER TO MA 9 IN REGARDS TO GETTING MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ENGAGED FOR OUR VISION OF THE FUTURE OF THE CITY.

KRISTYNA: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.

THERE ARE STILL ABOUT 100 PEOPLE HERE AT THE WATCH PARTY.

WE WILL CHECK IN AGAIN LATER IN THE HOUR.

ROB: THANKS.

I'M JOINED BY TAYLOR NOW.

OBVIOUSLY NOT THE OUTCOME YOU WERE HOPING FOR, BUT YOU ARE YOUNG.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU HAVE RUN FOR AN ELECTED OFFICE.

THE HAVE PLANS TO RUN AGAIN IN THE FUTURE? >> IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO DIGEST THIS RACE AND THICK ABOUT SOME OF THE EXPERIENCES THAT I'VE BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE.

I'M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HAS.
