My family has always been politically active - whether as voters or candidates. Politics and elections were always discussed (and cussed) at our dining room table. No surprise that political science was one of my minors in college.
|Mayor Bill Kelly|
Below is a clipping from the Lincoln (NE) Evening Journal of April 8, 1959, when my grandfather Bill Kelly was defeated in his run for the Greenwood (NE) village board. Well, he showed them! A few years later, he was elected Mayor of Greenwood, where he served during the town's centennial.
