First a quick Separated at Birth:
Jane Kleeb in front of the State Department (and her Nebraska peeps) in Lincoln…
…and Jane Kleeb in front of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Commerce (and her DC peeps) in Washington, D.C.
Wonder if she had her boots and FFA jacket stashed under the table…
Some quick releases today:
- Jon Bruning releases his endorsement by 74 county sheriffs and police chiefs .
- Deb Fischer releases her jobs plan.
- Don Stenberg releases a new video on the prohibition of Farm Dust.
- And campaign watchdog Fred Wertheimer releases all H-E double hockey sticks on Ben Nelson and his “ILLEGAL ADS”, via the L.A. Times!
And this from state Senator Scott Lautenbaugh:
There has been much discussion as of late over my proposal to change the make-up of the OPS board. I have proposed to take it from a 12-member board to a five-member board. Further, I have proposed term limits, and that the board members be paid. I will introduce legislation to accomplish this the first day of our legislative session in January.I believe this will create a board that is of a higher profile, more responsive to the need for change, and better equipped to give us the kind of district we need for our children.
I have attached a draft of what such a 5-subdistrict OPS would look like. The recently approved 12-seat map from the current school board was drawn with the express purpose of preserving the seats of current members, and it shows. My draft map (below) is drawn with the guiding principle that the districts should have a recognizable geographic basis, and correspond with identifiable parts of our community. This is a map and a sub-district plan that is drawn with the interests of the citizens who reside in OPS in mind.
It is time for a new approach.
That’s fine and all. But we are still waiting for a map of the boat dock sites around Lake Ashland…
