NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -After his appointment by Governor Pete Ricketts to serve on the Nebraska Legislature eight weeks ago, District 42 State Senator Mike Jacobson is vying to keep his seat.

Jacobson held a campaign rally meet and greet at Venue 304 Monday. Supporters included District 36 State Senator Matt Williams and University of Nebraska Lincoln Board of Regent Chairman Bob Phares.

Jacobson is the founder and president of Nebraskaland Bank, has previously served on the City’s Community Redevelopment Authority and the Airport Authority before he was chosen to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of former State Senator Mike Groene.

“One of the things I said in my first floor speech when I was introduced to the body is, I told them that, ‘you are not always going to have my vote, but one of the things I will guarantee you is you will always have my respect’ and if I accomplish anything in the legislature it’s to restore the respect that our district deserves in your representative,” said Jacobson. “Far too often, our part of the state and our district has come up short on issues across the state. We look at the vets home that ends up in Kearney, we look at the fairgrounds that ends up in Grand Island, but nothing seems to come out here. I intend to change that.”

Even with the recent passage of the state’s largest tax cut, Jacobson said he’ll continue to work on tax reduction.

Lincoln County Commissioner Chris Bruns and Brenda Fourtner are also running for the District 42 seat.
