  • 63 Days! Written by | September 1, 2014
    We survived the summer campaign season pretty much intact.  Between mid June and mid August, we walked in 12 parades, took in 4 county fairs and several community festivals (in addition to the 12 parades). We have knocked on doors and done community business walks.   I've also spent a significant amount of time meeting with individuals and groups in an effort to raise the money needed to finish out the campaign.  While we'll spend significantly less that many of the legislative campaigns in the state will, when it's all said and done, signs, ads and a mailing or two cost…

  • 100 Days! Written by | July 27, 2014
    Today marks 100 days until the General Election.  As I write this, it's with a knowledge that exactly 100 days from now, election results will be coming in, and I'll have a much better idea of what the next 4 years will look like for me. I've enjoyed the campaign this summer.  Parades, fairs, meeting with people where they live and work--all of these things have been a part of a busy post-primary, pre-general election, interlude. As we head into the "fall campaign" and approach the end of summer festival season, we look ahead to meeting up with more voters…

  • Thank You! And Now On to the 2nd Phase... Written by | May 14, 2014
    I've had many calls, notes, and comments as I've been running around today congratulating me on the showing of the campaign in the primary.  For those who haven't seen the details, here's a link to the Secretary of State's website, where you can "drill down" even to the precinct level. I want to express my thanks to a lot of people who helped me during the Primary stage of this campaign, although I'd best not mention them by name, or I'm bound to forget someone. First, my family (who I will mention by name): my husband, Russ; daughter and son-in-law…

  • Anytime, Anywhere! Written by | April 28, 2014
    Over 10 months ago, I announced my candidacy for the Legislative District 32 seat.  Having grown up in this district, and then returned after the college and military years, this seemed like a no-brainer for me--a perfect fit, if you will. I'm not sure exactly how many miles I've driven since beginning this adventure (nor, how many I will add to the total during the General Election campaign), but the car we bought right before Thanksgiving--just over 5 months ago, has 10,000 miles added to the odometer since we got it, and most of those are in-district miles.  Here's a…

  • Technology Fixed! Written by | April 7, 2014
    Just a quick note here:  If you've ever submitted questions via the Contact page here on the website, and wondered why I didn't respond, I apologize.  We had some technical difficulties, and for some reason, it appears that comments/questions submitted in that manner was disappearing into the ether. We think we've got it fixed now, so that it will go where it needs to go.  But just in case we don't you can always email me using my personal email address (found on that page), or phone me. Laura

Why Laura?

Laura Ebke is running for the 32nd Legislative District seat in 2014.

My “agenda” in running for the 32nd Legislative District seat is simple and can be boiled down to a few short items:

  1. I want Nebraska to work even harder at creating the kinds of jobs that will keep our children tied to not just Lincoln and Omaha, but the rural areas of our state as well
  2. I believe that part of what’s necessary to achieve #1 is to have an economy that has low taxes, excellent schools, and a low regulatory environment for new businesses
  3. to succeed at #2, we need to minimize the regulatory role of the state government and ask ourselves what, exactly, we need for the government to do, and what we can do for ourselves, individually, or at the local level
