LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska State Senator Bruce Bostelman has received the endorsement of the Nebraska Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC) in his bid for re-election to serve the citizens of Legislative District 23. The NEFB-PAC endorsement is based on candidate’s positions on agriculture and rural issues and recommendations from district evaluation committees.
“Sen. Bostelman has been an advocate for reducing the property tax burden on Nebraskans from the first moment he stepped foot in the legislative chamber. Property tax relief and tax reform is of the highest priority to our members. We greatly appreciate his work and commitment in this area,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Bostelman has provided a strong rural voice in the body, at a time when fewer and fewer Nebraskans have a direct connection to the day-to-day issues that face Nebraska’s farm and ranch families.
“Bruce brings real-life agriculture experience to the State Capitol. The importance of that cannot be understated. We are pleased to count Sen. Bostelman among those receiving the NEFB-PAC endorsement,” 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.
