“As I regain my strength I plan to be at the Nebraska Legislature no sooner than 2-3 weeks, but I realize my recovery is very important,” Senator Seiler said. “My office will remain open, and I will be meeting with staff regularly and constituents are more than welcome to continue contacting my office during this time.”
Senator Seiler would like to express his gratitude to everyone for their support. “The amount of phone calls, messages, and emails I have received have been overwhelming, thank you everyone for keeping my family and I in your thoughts and prayers during this time.”
