Hi, I’m Glen Ellis and I’m running for Mayor of Fremont, Nebraska.

Our city is made up of families, artists, hard workers, innovators, students, educators, and leaders. As Mayor, I will represent each and every one of you with the same transparency and integrity I have displayed as Ward Two’s City Council Representative. For far too long, decisions have been made by our city leaders without your voice being heard. That is not right. When I say “Here. For you.” I mean I am physically present in our community day in and day out. I am here to listen to and help each individual, and our community as a whole.

I am a resident, entrepreneur, a husband, father of five, and a 2020 mayoral candidate hoping to show you that we can make our Fremont community better.
