    During my campaign property taxes were the number one issue in legislative district 32.  I have co-sponsored two different property tax bills, LB 314 and LB 497. These are very large bills that essentially raise or get rid of exemptions for some sales taxes in order to enable the state to pay a larger percentage of school funding thereby decreasing the ask on property taxpayers.

    When I was little, my grandparents lived on the farm. Of the many memories I have of those times on the farm, one is very vivid. With distinct clarity, I remember when it was time to slaughter the chickens (I suppose that sounds awfully violent so if you prefer, you can use the word “euthanize” instead. If that doesn’t do it for you, I imagine there are other blogs out there to visit.).
