This month’s Coffee Chat welcomed representatives for Nebraska State Senators Kari Ridder (Sasse) and Dusty Vaughn (Fischer). Attendees participated in a lively discussion about our city and state transportation issues. Both Ridder and Vaughn agreed that infrastructure is a priority for Nebraska, and noted the effects of transportation on our economy and quality of life. While a great deal of funding may come at the federal level, both guests noted the importance of solving issues at the local level and commented on the importance of collaboration between existing systems.
Ridder and Vaughn encourage citizens to provide input to their government representatives – our civic leaders need the public’s input, so please keep bringing issues to their attention! Contact Ben Sasse & Deb Fischer with your transportation input.
