There is little doubt that you can find some households around Omaha that are divided politically. In fact, sometimes those who live in those homes make it easy to spot.
Take, for example, a house near 108th & Hascall. Karen Morris’ front yard has two signs. One is for incumbent Mayor Jim Suttle. The other is for his challenger, council member Jean Stothert.
The two are embroiled in a heated campaign.
Morris tells Channel 6 News that she and her grandson, who lives with her, don’t see eye to eye politically. They are both learning to compromise through their differences.
You can’t help but notice one sign is bigger than the other. The bigger one, for Stothert, belongs to Morris. The smaller one, for Suttle, belongs to her grandson. Morris explained the difference in size is due to the fact that she is the homeowner.
She proudly added that she is glad that her grandson is interested in the political process.
