Welcome Letter

January 20th, 2015

As the 104th Nebraska Legislature convened this past week, I want to take the opportunity to thank you again for electing me to serve District 38 in the Nebraska Legislature. Since the election, I have been busy working with my colleagues and examining issues critical to south central Nebraska. I have had the opportunity to sit down with many constituents and fellow Senators who are passionate about Nebraska. I look forward to working with them in order to make the state better for our residents, children, and future generations.

I was fortunate to be assigned to the important Appropriations Committee for this session. On this committee, myself and the other eight members will dive in to each line of the state budget to find the best possible way to allocate your tax dollars. It is a challenging task, and one that will provide me an opportunity to understand all aspects of state government.

For my staff, I have hired Barb DeRiese as my Administrative Assistant and Nick Knihnisky as my Legislative Assistant. Having been in the Capitol with the district for 11 years, Barb will provide my office with her extensive knowledge of the building, district, and its people. She can be contacted at Nick will assist with the research of legislation, consulting on introduced bills, as well as any legislative concerns you may have. He can be contacted at

I am in office 1117 at the Capitol and my door will be open Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. If you can not make it to the office, please give me a call at 402-471-2732. I hope to be as accessible as possible to you and District 38. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff with any question, concern, or comment.
