Nebraska State Senator Candidate
Sue Crawford: Narrative
As an Olde Towne Bellevue homeowner and parent of children in Bellevue Public Schools, I am personally invested in strengthening economic development, education, and the quality of life in our Bellevue/Offutt community. My expertise analyzing budgets and policies combined with my experience knowing how policies affect families and businesses enables me to be an effective Senator.
For over 17 years, I have taught public policy at Creighton University and worked with government and nonprofit partners such as Senator Hagel’s health care committee and the Nebraska Office of Rural Health. My connections in the Bellevue community include involvement in organizations such as the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, PTAs, and New Life Baptist Church.
My supporters include Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. I will work with citizens and Senators from all parties to make Nebraska a better place to live, work, run businesses, and raise families. I will protect the sanctity of life. I will work with state and local leaders to push for infrastructure and development to create jobs in the Bellevue area, ensure that teachers and parents are equal partners in decision-making, create accountability mechanisms to protect vulnerable individuals and taxpayer money, reduce retiree taxes, and support veterans and military families.
