Jean Stothert is the 51st mayor of Omaha and the first women to be so elected. She grew up near St. Louis and received a degree in nursing from Seattle Pacific University. She worked as a critical care nurse and then as head nurse of the department of cardiovascular surgery at St. Louis University. After moving to Omaha in 1993, she served on the Millard Board of Education and the Omaha City Council. She is now in her second term as Mayor. Mayor Stothert’s first priority is public safety. The number of police officers has reached the record high of 902, the fifth police precinct opens this month and the fire department will break ground next year on a new fire station. She has authorized the replacement and addition of equipment for both the police and fire departments to protect our first responders and the citizens of Omaha.
