Senator Tanya Cook Unicam Overview
The 104th session of the Nebraska Legislature adjourned for the year on April 20th. In the intervening weeks, I have taken some time to reflect on the successes and challenges of my final term as your representative for District 13.
Your Legislature took action to improve our state in many ways. I had several bills passed and signed into law by Governor Ricketts: LB 83 improves wage equality protections for Nebraska workers; LB 510 offers an incentive for employers to provide transformative investments in struggling families; LB 852 provides greater support to the vital work of our state’s community colleges; and LB 1004 will help ensure that low-income students are not missing out on healthy meals at school. I am extremely proud to have worked on these laws, which I believe will improve the quality of life for all Nebraskans. More...
Progressive Caucus Forming In Nebraska

The Progressive Democrats of Nebraska Caucus (and Douglas County) is a grassroots organization committed to advancing issues of social justice and equality, as well as forming a broad coalition of Progressives across Nebraska working with the Democratic Party through strong outreach and issue advocacy; providing training for organizers, future campaign workers and emerging Progressive candidates. We recognize democracy works best with informed and engaged citizens and their participation is the most effective way to mitigate the influences of money and special interests in politics, working with groups inside and outside the Democratic Party to support and advance Progressive values.

Ron Kaminski Running for National Committeeman NDP
Dear Progressive Democrat,
What an exciting time to be a Nebraska Democrat! Both of our presidential candidates offer so much more for our great Nation than this year's field of GOP contenders and with your continued help we will elect another Democrat to represent us in the White House this year.
I’ve been your National Committeeman for the last four years and have been asked by many Nebraska Democrats to seek another term. I have worked to exceed expectations by raising monies and resources for our democratic candidates, issues, and our party while also getting national officials and candidates to visit our state. I've used my delegate vote as a pull to get three presidential candidates to hold free events this cycle and I am proud of the fact that President Obama recently visited our state for the first time since being elected.
I’m pleased we elected Democrat Brad Ashford to Congress in 2014. I’m very honored to have Congressman Ashford's support and the support of all of our democratic state senators including Senator Ken Harr, Senator Heath Mello, Senator Sara Howard, Senator Tanya Cook, Senator Burke Harr, Senator Rick Kolowski, Senator Kate Bolz, Senator Sue Crawford, Senator Matt Hansen, Senator Patty Pansing Brooks, and Senator Adam Morfeld. I am also honored to have the support of many other elected officials, candidates, and party officials from across Nebraska, as I seek another term as your National Committeeman at our state convention.
