I am running for the Nebraska State Legislature because I have a vested interest in the future of the 43rd district. My husband and I have established our lives raising beef in the Sandhills of Nebraska and are proud to be part of the #1 industry that fuels Nebraska’s economy. We have raised our family, served our community, and plan to retire here, our home.
We must remain focused and vigilant on tax relief. We have to remove the millstone of the oppressive property-tax structure currently tied around our necks. This burdensome tax is drowning out freedom for economic growth and hindering opportunities for the next generation to return.
Promoting prosperity requires the need to modernize and build the infrastructure necessary to carry us into a changing economy. This includes expanding broadband connectivity necessary for changes in transportation, healthcare, education, and business. Focusing on fresh opportunities will pave the way for our children to return and our communities to thrive. We need to be looking through the windshield, not the rearview mirror.
An area that needs less growth is government. A over-burdensome regulatory environment can bring business to a grinding halt. Federal, state, and local governments need to stay in their lane to be efficient, effective, and responsive to the needs of the taxpayers.
We must stand firm on the foundation that has provided and will continue to allow opportunities for all: the very basic principles of our Republic that protect our individual rights. These begin with life, including that of the most innocent, the unborn, freedom of speech, religious freedom, the right to bear arms, and due process of law. I am committed to protecting these rights.
The decisions being made for us today have consequences that will impact our children and our future. I am vested in that future. I ask for your support to ensure the people of the 43rd district have a voice.
