"Hunt, a small-business owner in this midtown district, is a high-energy individual with strong political views. She demonstrated a practical sensibility, though, in describing how, if elected, she would need to work with a range of colleagues if she’s to achieve policy success. She showed a notable understanding of the Legislature’s procedures and key players and did a fine job explaining the ingredients for legislative success." Thank you very much to the Omaha World-Herald editorial board for their endorsement. I think they characterized me well, and I look forward to spending the next 29 days earning the endorsement of the residents of LD8.
I’m proud to have received the endorsement of the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police. Thank you to the great police officers who protect our neighborhoods and to the community advocates working with them to keep people safe. From the FOP: “Congratulations to Megan Hunt on the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police endorsement. The Nebraska FOP has endorsed Megan to serve Legislative District 8 in the Nebraska Legislature. Megan has the skill set to effectively advocate for public safety in the Nebraska Legislature and has made public safety a priority in her campaign. Megan will fight for the working men and women of law enforcement across Nebraska. The FOP is comprised of over 3000 law enforcement officers across Nebraska.”
Although I have had my hands in lots of different enterprises and projects, I have always worked with dedication and discipline to follow through on my pursuits, my passions, and my promises, even if it means burning the midnight oil. That same promise of commitment and dedication is what I pledge to bring, for you, to Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature. I’ve been a working mother since my baby’s first day, and I promise to work hard to make it easier for all the other parents out there trying to do the same thing I’m doing—working to make a better world for the next generation.
I’m an entrepreneur, a small business owner, a mother, and a sixth generation Nebraskan. I’ve been proud to call the Dundee neighborhood my home for over a decade. I’m raising my daughter here, where she attends Dundee Elementary School. I frequently say that I love living in Nebraska, and that loving where I live, I feel a responsibility to make this a place where everybody in our great state has the opportunity to start a business, have a great job, or pursue their passion in whatever way they choose, regardless of their background, income, or zip code. I’d like to tell you more about why that matters to me.
I'm proud to have earned the endorsement of the AFL-CIO! When unions in Nebraska succeed, all Nebraskans succeed.
In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln described the United States as a country “whose leading object is to elevate the condition of mankind—to lift artificial weights from all shoulders—to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all.” Today as we celebrate 242 years of this evolving, imperfect, exceptional American experiment, I am reflecting on those words.
SINGLE MOTHERS ARE HAVING THEIR MOMENT IN AMERICAN POLITICS A growing number of single women are running for public office. In order to beat their opponents, they may need to shatter some unfair stigmas first.
Wow. Thank you for coming through for the candidates you believe in, for showing up for democracy, and for your support in the upcoming general election. We carried the primary victory in Nebraska's District 8 with 56% of the vote, and we are going to work hard over the next 175 days to earn the trust, support, and vote of everyone in our community.
