Joni Albrecht is running for the Nebraska Legislature in District 17, comprised of Dakota, Thurston, and Wayne Counties. District 17 is located in the northeast corner of the state and is home to more than 37,500 Nebraskans.
As a fiscal conservative, I believe we need to find more efficiency in state government and will work to bring more accountability to our state systems. By holding the line on state spending, we can find ways to reduce the tax burden on Nebraska's businesses and families, leading to more economic growth.
Education is key when it comes to growing our state. We need to have strong schools focused on preparing students for future careers. Providing students with a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning is also important, and I support continued emphasis on skills that are key for a successful future.
As a person involved in the day-to-day operation of a farm, I know first hand the dedication and hard work put in by the farmers and ranchers across District 17. If elected, I will focus on policies that cut excessive regulations that prohibit growth in agriculture and will work to find more ways to bring kids back to the farm!
