Omaha City Councilman Chris Jerram wants another turn at the wheel. He's running for election to another term.

Jerram, who currently serves as Council Vice President, issued a news release stating he is, "committed to growing the heart of Omaha through continued economic development."

Jerram has represented District 3, including Downtown, Little Italy, Midtown, Blackstone and Aksarben Village since 2009. His district, which includes most of Downtown and Midtown Omaha, recently expanded west of 72nd Street to include the Westgate, Loveland and Swanson Park neighborhoods.

“For the past eight years on the Omaha City Council, I have stood up for taxpayers’ best interests and addressed their concerns,” he stated in his news release. “Making Omaha a safe, affordable and welcoming place to live, work and play is central to every decision I make.”

Jerram is a graduate of Creighton University School of Law. He and his wife Jennifer have been married for 25 years and have two daughters, Katie and Shannon.

Jerram’s past leadership experience also includes time spent as president of the Morton Meadows Neighborhood Association, chairman of the Omaha Zoning Board of Appeals, board member of the Governor’s Council to Keep Nebraska Beautiful, and long-time volunteer at Holy Cross Church, School and Booster Club and Mercy High School.
