An Omaha city council challenger has received one of the largest one-time donations we've seen this election.
City council candidate Tim Lonergan has received a $25,000 check from Firefighters for Better Government --- which operates out of the fire union hall.
Lonergan tells Channel Six News: "You can't buy my vote. I will talk to them like anyone else. Public safety is important."
Lonergan, who has run for council before, received two donations of $250 or more in the last reporting period. One for $250 from State Senator Bob Krist and the $25,000 check from firefighters.
He's one of five candidates for District 7. Tom Mulligan is the incumbent. Other candidates are Aimee Melton, who received a $10,000 donation from Omaha businessman Mike Simmonds; Cameron Gales and Don Kroupa.
The top two vote-getters on April 2 will move on the general election in May.
