LINCOLN, NEB. – Mike Flood, a former State Senator and a candidate to represent District 19 in the Nebraska Legislature, has received the endorsement of the Nebraska Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC). The NEFB-PAC endorsements are based on candidate’s positions on agriculture and rural issues and recommendations from district evaluation committees.
“Having former experience as a state senator and serving as the Speaker of the Legislature during his previous term make him a great candidate to represent the people of District 19. Mike is a businessman and understands the important role agriculture plays in the state’s economy,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Flood’s proven leadership as a former Speaker of the Legislature and his continued support of obtaining tax relief make him well qualified to serve in the Legislature.
“Mike shares our member’s belief that reforms are needed in Nebraska’s tax system and we are pleased to share our support for Mike as he seeks to represent District 19 in the Nebraska Legislature,” said McHargue.
According to McHargue, Flood has been a strong advocate for Farm Bureau priorities such as lowering property taxes, working to expand broadband and e-connectivity, as well as growing opportunities for economic development in rural areas.
“We’re pleased to support Mike as he seeks election in District 19. We encourage Nebraska Farm Bureau members to support Mike and we look forward to working with him for the betterment of Nebraska,” said McHargue.
