My preferred mode of transportation is light rail.

I fantasize about the development of a statewide zero-waste light rail system that connects our rural and urban areas, and eliminates the need for automobiles in Omaha and Lincoln. I spent some time in college working in Berlin, and I was amazed at the efficiency and interconnectivity of the entire country through their train network. I often think about how great it would be to modernize and adapt that to create a system that works for our state, empowering business and industry, attracting new Nebraskans, improving tourism, and protecting our environment. It’s a big dream…but you asked!
