LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska State Senator Steve Erdman 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 Nebraska Legislative District 47. The NEFB-PAC endorsements are based on candidate’s positions on agriculture and rural issues and recommendations from district evaluation committees.
“Having farmed for more than 40 years in Morrill County, Steve understands the day-to-day challenges that face Nebraska’s farm and ranch families and how state policies impact agriculture,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Sen. Erdman has served in numerous elected and volunteer positions that make him well qualified to serve in the Legislature, including serving on the local school board and as a Morrill County Commissioner.
“Steve also shares our member’s belief that reforms are needed in Nebraska’s tax system and we are pleased to share our support for Steve as he seeks to represent District 47 in the Nebraska Legislature,” said McHargue.
According to McHargue, Sen. Erdman 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 Steve as he seeks re-election. We encourage Nebraska Farm Bureau members to support Steve and we look forward to continuing to work with him for the betterment of Nebraska,” said McHargue.
