Libertarian Party Of Nebraska turns in 8,000 signatures
Signatures Gained from all Three Congressional Districts and 78 Counties
Expected to Put Libertarians Back on the Ballot in the Cornhusker State

LINCOLN – August 2, 2010—Libertarian Party of Nebraska (LPNE) State Chairman Gene Siadek issued the following statement:

“Today we submitted 8,000 signatures collected from across the state. We believe this indicates that Nebraskans are tired of the ‘politics as usual’ offerings of the two other parties. Our objective since the beginning of this drive has been to give Nebraskans a choice in who represents them.

5,934 signatures were required, with around 2,000 coming from each Congressional District.

“We applaud the efforts of our in-state petition circulators, both paid and volunteer.

“Special thanks go out to all the voters that signed our petitions. These voters; Democrats, Republicans, and Non-Partisans, seemed to appreciate that everyone should be included in the political process.

“Finally, we would like to thank the staff of the Secretary of State’s office. The timely responses to our requests for information were of great help before and during this important effort.

“We are confident the petitions we have turned-in to the Secretary of State meet all the requirements of Nebraska law and eagerly await confirmation by the State.

  1. I may have been ‘fired’ from an ongoing focus group. No word on our latest survey work being paid late!

    No reply to my queries. No returning to my voice mail.

    Her supervisor then was very snide and rude to me. [‘shut up and wait for the funding’ AND ‘ do you wish to discontinue your involvement’]

    HER SUPERVISOR was then contacted and he could not have been nicer and shipped the non existence check out ASAP.

    now let’s see if the group contacts me for the next survey, tick, tick, tick

    I hope that all of the petitioners that worked on this get paid – and get paid ON TIME – unlike when myself and some other petitioners were ripped off by Scott Kohlhaas during a Libertarian Party of Nebraska petition drive back in 2006.

    The Libertarian Party of Nebraska members should all join the Green Party. Nebraska is a great potential state for the great ideas of the Green Party conservative movement, with great future Green Party conservative politicians like Senator Ben Nelson, who is heading in that direction.
