Vote Yes for a better Omaha brochure

Title

Vote Yes for a better Omaha brochure

Subject

NU-OU Merger

Description

Eight-page booklet, 4" x 7.5", printed with blue text on white paper, detailing all six measures which were to be decided in the December 12, 1967, special election in the City of Omaha. The six ballot issues, in order, were merger of Omaha University with the University of Nebraska, bonds for new police headquarters and fire training facilities, charter amendment to provide additional policemen and equipment, bonds for street and highway construction and improvements, bonds for park and recreational facilities, and bonds for sewer construction and improvement. The brochure encourages a "yes" vote on all six measures, suggesting that collectively, the net result would not increase taxes. The brochure argues that the O.U.-N.U. merger would result in enough tax savings to completely offset the cost of the additional police officers and equipment. The brochure was funded by the Citizens Committee.
