I would like to first and foremost wish all of you a Happy Easter!
We have officially completed another busy week in the Nebraska State Legislature before going into the four day holiday weekend. The Executive Board has authorized Administrative Leave for all permanent employees of the Legislative Council for Friday, April 19th and Monday, April 22nd. My office along with the other Senators will be closed until Tuesday, April 23rd.
In the spirit of the holiday, I thought we could switch gears and talk about some of my favorite aspects of being a Nebraska State Senator. So for now, let’s put the legislation aside and dive in to some of the wonderful interactions that I have had over the past few weeks.
I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to the Attorney General’s Youth Conference, many 4th graders, and organizations that have visited the Capitol since session began.
I believe that it is of crucial importance to teach young people about the Legislature.
It doesn’t matter if they are in Elementary School or High School. It is never too early to start exposing our young people to how the Legislature works.
I believe that it is my duty to share what we do here with them just like I do with all of you. I enjoy talking about my experiences and my path to becoming a Nebraska State Senator.
It is truly a privilege to watch students learn about both the rich history of the State of Nebraska as well as the process of how the Legislature works. We are unique in the fact that we are the only state that has a unicameral system of government and that is something that we should all be proud of. It’s especially something that we should talk about with our students.
As always, feel free to contact my office. My office phone number is 402-471-2731 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
