Lincoln City Councilor Diane Kusz resigned from her Ward 2 position to spend time with her husband Jim as they travel across the United States — “as safe as they can” — amid a pandemic.
The City of Lincoln City thanked Diane for her service to the community and wished her well in all her future endeavors.
The Kusz’s sold their Lincoln City home and are perusing new American horizons in a heavily modified trailer that features solar panels, a custom living space for their dog, Nick, and custom Bigfoot stickers on the back. Jim and Diane have been married for over 20 years and contributed greatly to Lincoln City while they were here.
“We are off to see beautiful places on a road trip with good music,” She said from the road just outside Klamath Falls Tuesday. “It’s like a dream that has finally come to fruition. We’re doing it!”
The resignation opens up a Ward 2 seat on the City Council for a two-year term in addition to the four-year term already up for election in November. Interested parties can visit lincolncity.org/elections before 5 p.m. Aug. 19, to file for the position of Ward 2 Councilor.
