    Key issueOur families and our community need affordable, reliable electricity. As a mechanical engineer and small business owner, I help companies make smart energy decisions that lower costs and improve business efficiency. If elected to the OPPD board, I will cut through red tape and ensure that costs are minimized. I will work to implement efficiency programs and smart grid initiatives that will enable OPPD to remain a reliable and affordable power supplier, now and in the future.

    Key issueThe primary concern I'm hearing from friends and neighbors is maintaining affordable electricity. My top priority, when elected, is to get into the details of how OPPD is managed. I want to provide my financial expertise on behalf of everyday wage earners and ratepayers. I will hold the district accountable to keep costs down and maintain their commitment to no general rate increase through 2021. I will be involved in neighborhood groups and meetings to discuss OPPD issues that concern everyone. I want feedback so that I can represent my voters and communities' interests.

    Registration questions

    Visit www.votercheck.necvr.ne.gov to check whether you’re registered to vote and find your polling place. If you think you should be able to vote at a polling place but there’s a problem with the registration, request to fill out a provisional ballot. The election commission will collect them and then has a week to verify whether you are eligible to vote.
