Letters of Support - Chuck Hassebrook for Governor http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/lte Education, economy are priorities for Hassebrook <p>Economic vitality is important in Nebraska. However, I turn to a quote by a long-time Oklahoma newspaperman to support the case for a more important issue. Oklahoma Observer Editor, Frosty Troy said, "Everything America is or ever hopes to be depends upon what happens in public schools and classrooms."</p> Sun, 05 Oct 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltebarbour Hassebrook is authentic Nebraskan <p>I am old enough to remember the farm crisis that was brought about by the same kind of large out-of-state corporate interests that back Pete Ricketts.</p> Sat, 04 Oct 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltedevries Hassebrook has better vision for state government <p>Nebraskans have a really good candidate for governor this year. Chuck Hassebrook is a fair-minded and decent human being with a great record of public service.</p> Thu, 02 Oct 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltetappe Elections do matter <p>Elections do matter, and for Nebraskans, especially rural Nebraskans, this November's election matters more than most. The differences between the candidates for Governor could not be more stark.</p> Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:56:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltefraizer Millennials, the time has come <p>“So, Patrick, what brings you into our office today?” a staffer with Chuck Hassebrook’s 2014 gubernatorial campaign, asked me. For a moment, I was dumbfounded. Why was I there? I’m eighteen years old. I could be picking up extra hours at my job, spending time with my family, hanging out with my friends, or, most importantly, sleeping. Why was I spending my morning at an office making campaign calls with an ancient Nokia cell phone? </p> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltenolan Hassebrook has plans for prison problems <p>According to the Nebraska Department of Corrections, in 2013 our prisons were operating at 150 percent of capacity and the average cost for each inmate was more than $26,000. Overcrowding is a serious problem. What brought us to this point? A lack of leadership.</p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/lteschneiderkelly Support Hassebrook for Governor <p>For the first time in decades, we in Nebraska have a candidate running for statewide office that I can support without reservation. That candidate is Chuck Hassebrook for governor.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltecolburn Hassebrook/Raybould - a ticket for change <p>There are exciting changes ahead for Nebraska. When Chuck Hassebrook selected businesswoman Jane Raybould as his lieutenant governor, he made a strong statement: If they are elected, it will no longer be business as usual in the governor’s office.</p> Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:23:50 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/lteneary Hassebrook/Raybould <p>For the first time in years, I'm excited about candidates for governor and lieutenant governor for Nebraska. I've known Chuck Hassebrook for several years and have worked on a couple of projects with Jane Raybould. Both are highly intelligent, hard-working individuals who care deeply about the common good.</p> Fri, 04 Jul 2014 23:55:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltebentjen Hassebrook Impresses <p>During the school year, I was given the opportunity to intern with Chuck Hassebrook’s campaign for governor and the experience gave me a different outlook on the world of politics. I saw the way some politicians recklessly spent thousands of dollars for expensive television ads and large events that don’t allow voters to even speak with the candidate. Luckily, I was working for Chuck, the exact opposite of the big spenders and impersonal candidates.</p> Tue, 10 Jun 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltesurber Support for Hassebrook <p>There has been a lot of talk about negative advertising and outside money pouring into our elections. I would rather hear what a candidate is going to do for the State of Nebraska as opposed to hearing about all the things he deems wrong with his opponent. I was happy to see Chuck Hassebrook challenge Pete Ricketts to a Clean Elections Pact, but was disappointed with Rickett’s response. He appears to fail to realize Nebraskans are tired of being inundated with negative ads from shadowy outside groups. As a citizen, I want to know where the money is coming from for these ads. My vote is not for sale!</p> Mon, 09 Jun 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/lterouse Chuck's rural economic development plan will make a difference <p>I hope Nebraskans elect Chuck Hassebrook as their next governor. It would be good for the state, the whole state.</p> <p>Chuck has just released his first version of a plan to strengthen the economy of Nebraska. It builds on the assets already in our communities, and was shaped by input from citizens across the state. As Chuck continues his travels to all Nebraska counties, he will refine the plan based on input that citizens share with him. That's one of Chuck's talents...he's a listener.</p> Wed, 21 May 2014 10:56:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltebuttress Chuck Hassebrook Supports Veterans <p>As a retired member of the Air force, Chuck Hassebrook is my choice for Governor because he believes as a state; there is more we can do to support our active duty personnel and veterans.</p> Mon, 12 May 2014 13:21:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/lteligon To develop new energy: Hassebrook <p>As a rural resident of Nebraska I applaud gubernatorial candidate, Chuck Hassebrook, for leading the charge on renewable energy development in our state.</p> Sun, 11 May 2014 01:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltejohnson Writing in Candidates <p>I am a moderate Republican. I believe in conserving the land that Nebraska citizens have worked so hard to make into one of the largest breadbasket areas in the world. I believe in hands-up help for those struggling. I believe everyone deserves a good education regardless of social status.</p> Sun, 11 May 2014 01:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltetetherow Hassebrook for Governor <p>It is long overdue for Nebraska, whose economy is founded on agriculture, to have a farmer for its governor. It's easy enough for career politicians to slap on a work shirt and seed cap and stand in front of a corn field for a photo-op designed to court the farm vote, but owning agricultural land doesn't make someone a farmer any more than purchasing an airplane makes a person a pilot.</p> Sat, 10 May 2014 23:55:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltebleich Hassebrook for opportunity <p>Electing Chuck Hassebrook as Governor is the best idea this year. His qualifications, experience, and goals for Nebraska make this a very easy vote.</p> Wed, 07 May 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltemumgaard Check out Hassebrook <p>Last week I had the opportunity to attend a coffee gathering to meet Chuck Hassebrook. While I am a lifelong Democrat, I did not expect too much from our only candidate for governor. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I found Mr. Hassebrook to be genuinely interested in the future of our state and the people who reside here. He laid out his plans to solve our problems. His plans are optimistic and constructive.</p> Sun, 04 May 2014 00:00:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltegehrman Chuck Hassbrook is the right choice <p class="normal">Like Chuck, I believe that we must do more to close the pay gap and ensure equality in the workplace. I also think Chuck is right on about early childhood education. For three years, I worked as an educator teaching 4<sup>th</sup> through 8<sup>th</sup> grade math and saw firsthand how kids are affected when they start school behind.  I now work as a tutor and it is clear as kids climb the ranks of elementary and middle school, the likelihood of them ever catching up dwindles with each passing year. I appreciate that Chuck knows we have to do more to support kids before they fall behind and that support starts with early childhood education.</p> Sat, 03 May 2014 23:55:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltewight Hassebrook cares about ordinary people <p>You have not heard much from the Chuck Hassebrook Campaign for Governor, that’s because he has been working very hard away from the “noisy” media campaign. Meeting people like me and you on a personal basis, that is Chuck’s style. Chuck does not come to this race with “bags of money”, but you will hear and learn from him as the campaign goes on.</p> Sat, 03 May 2014 15:04:00 -0500 Symone Sanders http://www.chuckhassebrook.com/ltebarrett
