John Synowiecki is running to represent downtown and South Omaha in the Nebraska Legislature. Synowiecki, who served District 7 in the Legislature from 2002 through 2008, will prioritize property tax relief for working families, supporting a strong community-based behavioral health service network and ensuring a quality education for all children would be his top priorities.

In order for us to grow our economy and bring good jobs to the South Omaha community, we need to make sure education and property tax relief are top priorities for the state.”
