Denise Gilliland, Oakland City Council member and President of the council.

Hello. I am Denise Gilliland. I am on the Oakland City Council, serving as Oakland City Council President. I have been honored to serve the citizens of Oakland, never taking it lightly and never missing a meeting. I work from my home on Main Street, allowing me to always be available anytime of the day or night. I would appreciate your vote in November so I can continue to serve Oakland, keeping Oakland moving forward!

I am happily married to Jeff Gilliland. We have two grown children, Justin Beck and Whitney (Tri) Tran, four grandchildren and one on the way! We adore and love each moment with them! Being a parent and grandparent is a blessing. I have lived in Oakland for over 30 years. I graduated from Oakland-Craig High School in 1981. I graduated in 2013 from Northeast Community College with an Associate of Arts Degree in Journalism. I am the Editor and Chief of my own newspaper blog.

Jeff and I attend the Fire and Rescue fundraisers, Swedish Festival, Party in the Park and all other fundraisers for Oakland. I volunteered to help at events too.

Being involved in the community and serving on the Oakland City Council has given me the experience needed to keep Oakland on the right path, moving forward!

Just a couple of the accomplishments of the city council since I have been on include the new bathhouse in the Oakland Park and the water/sewer project that is nearing completion.

Our city employees are also a reason Oakland runs so smoothly. They are a great group of people, working hard every day.

The Oakland City Council members work together, offering stability and continuity, much needed to keep Oakland thriving!

Why fix what isn’t broken?

I would appreciate your vote! Let’s Keep Oakland Thriving!

Showed How Proud I am of Oakland and Serving the Citizens at Burt County Fair Parade


The weather was perfect Sunday to walk through the Burt County Fair Parade! I (Denise Gilliland, owner and editor of Kat Country Hub and Oakland City Council President) walked through the parade showing the citizens of Oakland how much Oakland means to me and how dedicated I am in serving each and every citizen of Oakland. It was wonderful seeing everyone at the parade and throughout the fair every day! I was also so blessed to have such wonderful people walk through the parade with me. I couldn’t have done it without them! My daughter, Whitney Tran and her husband Tri and their daughter Penelope, whom we spoil every chance we get, came early Sunday and helped us get everything ready to go! Our best friends Connie and Russ Peterson also came and helped out. They are truly great friends! Also, I just can’t thank Nebraska Senator Lydia Brasch and Oakland resident James Moseman enough for all they have done! They have been by my side, giving advice and helping me along the way. I appreciate each and every one of you so much! Thank you all!

Please Vote on Tuesday!


Please Vote on Tuesday!

 

I have always considered it my honor and duty to vote each and every election, primary and general election.

I encourage everyone to exercise the right to vote! I hope everyone does their civic duty and votes this Tuesday for the Primary!

Yes, I am one of the candidates.

I currently serve on the Oakland City Council. I hope to continue doing so for the next four years and would appreciate your vote! I am honored to serve the citizens of Oakland. I consider it my duty to keep Oakland a thriving community and a place everyone should be proud to call home!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am always available to every citizen of Oakland.

But, I am not encouraging people to vote because I am running for city council. I am a strong believer in voting. I have never missed an election since I was 18. I am proud to vote. I hope you are too!
