You won’t want to miss our featured speaker Nebraska State Senator Laura Ebke. In June, 2016, she left the Republican Party to become a Libertarian. At the time, she told the Omaha World-Herald “I got frustrated with some of my colleagues who don’t recognize civil liberties and don’t seem to agree with getting government out of people’s business.” Since then, she’s continued as an important member of Nebraska’s unicameral “nonpartisan” legislature, serving as chair of its Judiciary Committee. This will be a great opportunity to hear her experiences as an elected Libertarian State Senator.
