Former state Sen. DiAnna Schimek has won appointment to the Lincoln City Council.

The council voted 4-2 on Monday to confirm Schimek.

Schimek will be serve the rest of Jayne Snyder's four-year term.
Snyder cited health reasons for her resignation, which took effect
earlier this month. Snyder was elected to an at-large seat in May
2009.

Snyder had told several council members that she wanted Schimek
to replace her.

The 71-year-old Schimek represented Lincoln in the Legislature
for 16 years when Mayor Chris Beutler was a state senator.

Schimek says she's interested in cutting red tape, solving infrastructure problems, ensuring Lincoln's quality of life and maintaining citizen safety.
