2017 – We have a new elected Libertarian in Nebraska!

Ben Backus ran unopposed for Gering City Council – Ward III and therefor is now an elected Libertarian!

As you might noticed the web site doesn’t get a lot of updating as a lot of what goes on within the WNLP area ends up on Facebook, so to that end I changed the Events Calendar to a widget to pull data from the Facebook Events. The By-laws are generally kept up to date when new revisions are voted on. Right now since Scotts Bluff County adopted the WNLP-base By-laws we are keeping the WNLP By-laws in step with them; as of right now they are the only county within the WNLP area with a party.

Oily Commissioner Gets Last Seat

It looks like the fracking waste water well is a done deal. Pete Ricketts appointed the last commissioner for the hearing, who happens to own oilfields. The rules for the hearing state that only people who live within a half mile of the well can comment…so basically no one.

More from LPNE in 2015

It’s a new year and time to start fresh with a new Nebraska Unicameral. We have plans to work with Nebraska Friends of Midwives since LB428 failed to make it out of the HHS Committee in 2014.

Expect more as the year moves on and keep an eye out for when we start our monthly meetings again. If you have any input please contact Ben Backus or myself.

Ben Backus for Secretary of State response to the “Foley” issue

“John Gales decision today highlights exactly why Nebraska is ready for a third party candidate. The Secretary of State’s office is supposed to be a non-partisan voice in the election process. If the situation was reversed, and the candidate was a Democrat we all know Mr. Gales decision would be different. He stated he is trying to prevent confusion in the election process. There is no confusion , there is election law. You are a lawyer Mr. Gale, follow the law. Mr. Gale was appointed to his position, hand selected by republican leadership. It’s time for the citizens of Nebraska to break up the “good ole boy” system running our state and elect real people to office, and not the rotating selection of stuffed shirts. Mr. Gale may point out that I might not be qualified for the office since I am not a lawyer, but I do know how to read and I do know how to follow the law , one of those two points Mr. Gale is failing on.” – Ben Backus for Nebraska Secretary of State 2014
