Domina right for Nebraska PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
David Domina is campaigning for a U.S. Senate seat to represent Nebraska.
Over 10 years ago, I was fortunate to have had the opportunity of a front row seat beside Dave in a U.S. District courtroom in Montgomery, Alabama, representing the U.S Cattlemen in a class action lawsuit referred to as Pickett vs. Tyson, concerning market concentration.  
Dave was our lead attorney and nearly the only attorney who had the courage and fortitude to respectfully and masterfully take on upwards of 20 Tyson attorneys. We won a unanimous 12 member jury verdict against Tyson, but did not ultimately prevail because politically appointed judges reversed the jury’s decision.
Dave’s lifetime work has been helping small business- independent ranchers and farmers- which is essentially Main Street rural America.  
Every independent rural citizen, regardless of their party affiliation, should have a Domina for U.S. Senate sign hanging in their store or on their entrance.  
I challenge you to educate yourself on the stark differences between Dave and his main opponent Ben Sasse. Researching ‘campaign fund financing’ would be a good start as a large percentage of Sasse’s contributions come from out-of-state interests not friendly to Nebraska nor our number one industry, ag.  
I cannot think of another person better suited to turn a U.S. Senate full of dissenting Republicans and Democrats back into united Americans, which is long past due.
On Nov. 4, Nebraskans have one chance in a lifetime to elect a strong, leading rural voice to the U.S. Senate.
Lets get ‘er done!

Chris Abbott, Gordon

 
Hassebrooke suited for job PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I will be voting for Chuck Hassebrook for Governor this election; I hope many other Nebraskans will do the same. As a farmer in Perkins County, I have studied the candidates and find Mr. Hassebrook to be best suited for the job.
Born and raised on a Nebraska farm, Hassebrook uses “One Nebraska” as his theme. The theme suggests that rural families and communities of western Nebraska should have the same support as eastern bigger cities and industries.  
“Fairness” is also his goal when it comes to taxes, natural resources and other issues. He cares about the livelihood of all Nebraskans.
Mr. Hassebrook served for 18 years on the Board of Regents, an elected position, where he was able to increase financial support for University students of families with low and modest incomes.  
As a Regent he also paid attention to University research emphasizing research that benefited family farms and ranches rather than large agribusiness suppliers.
This candidate also supports more early childhood education to ensure our young people achieve the best they can in education today, so they can benefit families and communities tomorrow.
Mr. Hassebrook has extensive experience in supporting small business development to revitalize rural communities, creating new jobs around the state.  He supports further ethanol development and other alternative energy options.
As a resident of the small town of Lyons, Nebraska, Chuck Hassebrook understands the needs of rural agriculture and small communities.  He is the best candidate for rural Nebraskans as the next Governor.
