GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Tuesday night’s election meant the end of the road for Grand Island mayoral candidate Julie Wright.

Wright is a Grand Island entrepreneur responsible for Tally Creative and the soon to be opened Big Red Treats. Wright came in third behind Doug Brown by a margin of just 200 votes.

She said her plans aren’t set for the future, but has an idea of what some next steps could be.

“You always want to win and the competitive side of me I guess it was always a letdown, just thinking through what you could have done differently,” Wright said. “At the end of the night, I was just excited for what the future holds and already looking into ways that I can be involved, even more, involved than I am now and some of the changes I want to see but more from a volunteer standpoint.”

Wright said she is not ready to endorse either Mayor Roger Steele or Doug Brown, but wants to sit down with them and talk about it before making a final decision.
