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.
Happy Mother's Day. I am grateful to be influenced and touched by mothers every day, directly through their compassion and strength and indirectly through the amazing children they nurture in the world. I am also thinking today of the mothers we have lost, and the mothers who themselves have gone through loss.
