When people ask me why I chose to run, it’s because I wanted to be a public servant who listened. A representative who empowered my district to demand the change they’ve long needed.
I’m tired of elected officials that take our money and ignore our concerns. I’m tired of career politicians that profit from special interests while barring the people in their districts from their right to governance. Party dynamics that preserve the political circus, while dividing communities based on coded rhetoric rather than progress or patriotism.
We can be better. We have to be. It’s 2019; our state is still recovering from the flooding that’s devastated many of our lives and well-being. Military families continue to sacrifice their loved ones in never-ending conflicts. People are living in the coverage gap, terrified of even a minor illness because they can’t afford it. And because I live in this reality, I understand the urgency.
Our district deserves honesty and transparency. We deserve leadership that listens instead of preaching talking points. Someone who will do the hard work of representing the diversity of the district and its views.
It is time for common-sense legislation that does not infringe on the civil rights and liberties of any Nebraskan, that also works to correct antiquated and unjust systemic issues.
This campaign is about more than me. It’s about mobilizing and empowering each of our friends and neighbors to demand their voice be heard. To be prioritized by the politicians they pay to represent them. We are Nebraskans, we are strong, unbought and unbossed.
We believe in leaders who act in the interest of their communities. Everyday people should guide legislation, and legislators should live like everyday people.
My name is Morgann.
I’m a second generation Nebraskan from North Omaha & Bellevue. I believe that we deserve representation for us, by people like us. I believe in the power of civic engagement, community action and decentralized leadership.
I believe in empowering constituents to become community leaders. I believe in meeting people where they’re at, and finding a way forward, together.
