AARP Nebraska, July 14, 2010
AARP Nebraska will launch a vigorous nonpartisan voter education effort around this year’s state legislative races. Top issues facing Nebraska lawmakers include an expected $679 million gap in the state budget, major responsibilities for implementing the new federal health care law and an aging population in need of home- and community-based long-term care services.
“As the 2010 races gear up, we must hear from the candidates about where they stand on key issues affecting Nebraskans age 50 and over,” said AARP Nebraska Advocacy Director Mark Intermill. “Better yet, we must hear about their vision and be assured of their commitment to define the State of Nebraska as a leader in aging policy.”
Candidates for the Nebraska Legislature are running in 24 legislative districts. AARP Nebraska will inform voters about their responses to the following questions:
Voters will elect State Senators in Legislative Districts 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46 and 48. AARP needs volunteers to ask the candidates questions at events and help organize or participate in candidate roundtable interviews across the state. For details, contact Mark Intermill at 1-866-389-5651 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, AARP Nebraska will publish an online voters’ guide for state and federal races that can be downloaded at www.aarp.org/ne. Check back in the weeks and months ahead. Legislative district maps and a list of state and federal candidates running in 2010 are available online.
