LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska State Senator Joni Albrecht has received the endorsement of the Nebraska Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC) in her bid for re-election to serve the citizens of Legislative District 17. The NEFB-PAC endorsement is based on candidate’s positions on agriculture and rural issues and recommendations from district evaluation committees.
“Joni has first-hand experience with how farm and ranch families are impacted by state policies and regulations. It is critical to have people like Joni elected to the Legislature who know agriculture and the important economic role it plays in rural communities and our state’s broader economy,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Albrecht has been a strong advocate for Farm Bureau priorities such as lowering property taxes, working to expand broadband and e-connectivity, and growing opportunities for economic development in rural areas.
“We’re pleased to support Joni as she seeks re-election. We look forward to continuing to work with her for the betterment of Nebraska,” said McHargue.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 58,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
