KPTM Features Leavenworth Street (sort of…)

Noting that we were named TIME’s Person of the Year, KPTM Fox 42 interviewed Leavenworth Street online last night for their story on the pronouncement (TIME’s Person of the Year: You – KPTM – 12/18/06). They went ahead and used the relatively lame quote we gave them, but at least they used our ham joke. (And we should note that Calvert Collins did not conduct the interview. No hard feelings!)

Keep those nominations coming in for the Leavenworth Street Nebraska Politician of the Year (to be announced Thursday the 21st)! Some of the nominees thus far include (in alpha order):

Jon Bruning…………Carlos Castillo…………….Ernie Chambers
Jim Esch……………..The Friend family……….Chuck Hagel
Julie Haney………….Dave Heineman………….Scott Kleeb
Lou Ann Linehan…..Kathleen McCallister…..Ben Nelson
Tom Osborne……….Pete Ricketts’ Mom……..Adrian Smith

    Pete Pirsch deserves a nomination. He came from an underdog position to win the primary, knocking out Kerry Winterer, a well-known and well-financed competitor, and to dominate the general election in LD4 race by about eighteen points.

    I’m clear out in Western Nebraska and would definitely cast a vote for Jon Bruning. He’s been out in our neck of the woods many times and knows the state doesn’t end at North Platte. We are talking & watching out this direction about what goes on in Lincoln & Omaha and see Jon Bruning as a man who cares about this end of the state. Proudly from the Panhandle, A daughter,a sister, a niece, a mom and a grandma!
