LINCOLN, NEB. – Rita Sanders is seeking election to District 45 in the Nebraska Legislature, and 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.
“She will work to reduce property taxes and continue to bring good-paying jobs to Nebraska. These qualities make her a great candidate to represent the people of District 45,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Sanders brought strong leadership as mayor of Bellevue and will be an advocate for Farm Bureau priorities.
“We’re pleased to support Rita as she seeks election in District 45. We encourage Nebraska Farm Bureau members to support Rita and we look forward to working with her for the betterment of Nebraska,” said McHargue.
