LINCOLN, Neb. — A long list of construction companies, architects and engineers are behind a group promoting passage of a Feb. 11 Lincoln election on whether to borrow $153 million for school construction and upgrades.

The money would be used to beef up security and technology, renovate schools and build a new elementary school, middle school and $25 million career academy at Southeast Community College.

A political committee called Great Schools for Great Children has been buying newspaper ads, sending out fliers, putting up signs and running TV ads in support of the bond issue.
