|Key issue||As a firm believer and practitioner in servant leadership, my top priority is to truly represent the people of western Sarpy County.

|Key issue||I will continue to work for the residents of Sarpy County. In my more than 20 years of service as an elected official, I have become known as a common-sense, hardworking, conservative elected official. My leadership has been proven, tested and trusted. I have developed a skill set unique to the growth of Sarpy County. I will continue to work to see the south Sarpy sewer become a reality. I will lead in the building of roads and infrastructure for our growing county. I am committed to build a corrections facility that also addresses the growing mental health needs of our county.|

Three ways to register
» Online at nebraska.gov/apps-sos-voter-registration.
» Register in person at an election commission office, the DMV, or in Douglas County, any of Omaha’s 12 library branches.
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.
