LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska State Senator Tom Briese 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 41. 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 30 years in Boone County, Tom 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. Briese worked to lower property taxes, control government spending, has helped make Nebraska more competitive, promote and defend agriculture and has worked to attract families back to our rural communities.
“Tom also shares our members’ belief that reforms are needed in Nebraska’s tax system and we are pleased to share our support for Tom as he seeks to represent District 41 in the Nebraska Legislature,” said McHargue.
According to McHargue, Sen. Briese 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 Tom as he seeks re-election. We encourage Nebraska Farm Bureau members to support Tom and we look forward to continuing to work with him for the betterment of Nebraska,” said McHargue.
