Mayor Jim Suttle is being challenged for not going back to collect $1 million in excess pay given to Omaha police officers.
City Councilwoman Jean Stothert's mayoral campaign distributed a November 2012 memorandum from Suttle ordering his finance director to “not to pursue the matter” because it was not in the public interest and would keep the city from jeopardizing its relationship with the police department.
