Jim Suttle believes education and educational opportunities for all people are keys to a successful future for Omaha.
An educated workforce empowers a happy, thriving population. Omaha must focus on educating our young people so they have a path to personal success.
Mayor Suttle supports our efforts to reduce truancy and lower the drop-out rate. He is a strong proponent of mentoring, internships and youth jobs initiatives in cooperation with our private sector businesses. He knows our technical institutions, trade apprenticeships, colleges and universities are essential partners in developing a healthy economy and a workforce that meets the demands of an evolving job market.
By placing an emphasis on learning at every stage, we're reducing poverty and criminal activity, promoting economic development, and creating new and better jobs.
