Hi, my name is Lucas Link. My mom is from Asbury, and my dad is from Farley. I’ve grown up in Asbury, Dubuque and Dubuque County my entire life. I went to elementary school at Kennedy, middle school at Jefferson, high school at Hempstead and liked it so much here I went to college in Dubuque as well at Loras College.

I really don’t like describing myself to people, but I see myself as a pretty selfless person. I think where you would see that is what I do for a living. I’m a teacher and I really enjoy helping other people and I don’t like getting things in return for that. As a teacher, it’s important to me to educate children for the future, for Dubuque, for society and that they are getting the proper skills necessary for them to be an active community member.
