From the Desk of Laura Ebke

My first session in the Nebraska Legislature has come to a close, and now we head into interim studies and visiting with constituents. My plan for the summer is to try and be out in the district, somewhere, at least once a week. My Legislative Aide, Brandon Benson, and I will be making some daytime forays into the district in the coming weeks--I want him to get to know the towns and people in the district, as well as be there to help me take notes.  We may knock on your door, or stop by your place of business, or just hit up a local coffee spot and see who’s there.
