PROSPERITY FOR ALL NEBRASKANS
Nebraskans need to know the truth about the history of our property taxes over the last two decades. I want to be transparent about these issues and start working on solutions to fix these problems starting with unfunded and underfunded mandates and fully fund our schools. The Big Lie on Property Taxes
We can grow our state and economy with the goal of attracting and retaining talent – particularly those in the 18 to 34 age range – who will drive our state’s economy for years and help build generational wealth for the greater good for all. I vow to listen to the collaborative voices of many, not the privileged few or special interest groups.
MAINTAIN PUBLIC SAFETY AND IMPROVE PUBLIC HEALTH
Everyone wants to feel safe and have services accessible to them so they can stay well. Nebraskans should feel confident needed resources and training are available for law enforcement officers so they can respond appropiately.
Our state must have enough doctors, dentists, mental health professionals, clinics, and hospitals to address the needs of all our communities. As first responders age out, we should use this opportunity to ensure the applicant pool is sufficient to meet the needs of communities served during times of unprecedented challenges.
Nebraskans need to know that elected officials have their backs during natural disasters and in times of need. They need a Governor who has a plan to withstand or quickly recover from man-made or natural disasters. Nebraska needs a leader who can step up to the plate and make sure Nebraskans don’t become collateral damage to bad decisions. This is our Flint, Michigan.
INVEST IN NEBRASKA’S INFRASTRUCTURE
We contribute to the success of our farmers and businesses when we properly maintain our bridges and roads. It’s time Nebraska stepped up to fund necessary projects by utilizing bonding as needed to move the projects forward in an expeditious manner.
Our communities benefit when we create connectivity, have dependable utilities and necessary transportation options that meet our current needs, and broadband internet to connect people to opportunities.
I want to address the ongoing deteriorating infrastructure that slows down our ability to compete in an increasingly global marketplace.
I support an education finance system that continues to foster quality, fairness, and equity, with the state playing a larger role in K-12 finance to reduce property tax reliance and give all stakeholders a voice.
Let’s continue to grow Nebraska’s post-high school options, knowing that a 4-year degree is not always the right path for students, and address student loan debt. Young Nebraskans and our workforce will benefit with the implementation of a K-14 education allowing high school graduates the benefit of up to two years of community college. This allows young adults to enter the workforce with valuable skills and no college debt.
Together we can generate a workforce that is well-rounded and capable, creating strong future employees who are encouraged to stay and succeed here in Nebraska.
