LINCOLN, NEB. – Dave Murman of Glenvil has been designated a “Friend of Agriculture” by NEFB-PAC, Nebraska Farm Bureau’s political action committee. Murman is seeking to represent District 38 in the Nebraska Legislature.
“We are pleased to offer our support for Dave in his pursuit to represent District 38 in the Legislature. As a third-generation farmer and life-long resident of the district, he knows the people and communities he’s seeking to represent and has a passion for helping the district grow and thrive,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
Murman’s priorities of lowering property taxes and supporting fair funding for schools and high-quality education, in addition to focusing on policies to support small businesses and job creation, helped earn Murman the designation.
“Dave shares many of our organization’s priorities. Furthermore, he has a strong track record of involvement in leadership positions to improve agriculture and rural Nebraska that make him a strong candidate. His experiences include, participating in the Nebraska LEAD Program, serving as president of the Nebraska State Dairy Association, service to the Dairy Farmers of America, and being a member of Nebraska Farm Bureau’s State Legislative Policy Committee. All of these experiences will serve him well in the Legislature,” said McHargue.
Nebraska Farm Bureau’s “Friend of Agriculture” designation is given to selected candidates for public office based on their commitment to and positions on agricultural issues, qualifications, previous experience, communication abilities, and their ability to represent the district.
