Christa Yoakum is running for the Lancaster County Commission. With Christa’s leadership, we were able to stop the expansion of Costco’s risky chicken barns, which would have polluted our land and water. Christa was also a decisive vote on bringing more solar to Lancaster County.
Eliot Bostar helped manage the Build Our Energy Barn that we placed directly in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline. Eliot is now running for Legislature in the Lincoln area (LD29). For the past several years, Eliot led the Nebraska League of Conservation Voters, where he helped make sure our Public Power Boards were represented by Nebraskans who believe in climate change and property rights.
Brodey Weber was a grassroots organizer against the expansion of Costco’s factory chicken barns in Lancaster County. If elected to the Nebraska Legislature in the Lincoln area (LD21), he plans to introduce a bill to prohibit large-scale Contained Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) near schools without local school board approval, and put stronger water protections in place for the Ogallala Aquifer. Imagine a Senator who lifts up family farmers over corporate Ag — Brodey is our guy.
