Having grown up in Omaha, I’ve always really enjoyed the diversity of the people. Many, many different ethnic groups......Not your usual Republican themes, there. But, damn if it isn't refreshing to see someone who really doesn't fit into modern political stereotypes.....who uses the supposed independence afforded by our nonpartisan legislative environment to answer to principle rather than any one side's partisan extremists.
I’m committed to social justice. I grew up in a family that was grounded in that....
We need to constantly be vigilant against intolerance....
I think we ought to get back to our roots. We are, at our roots, a secular society that believes passionately about the freedom of religion and the freedom of speech. It’s a wonderful mixture where people have the right to believe and say what they will.
At the same time, we should be careful not to impose our views or our religion on others.
Our hats off to Sen. Ashford, with thanks for the example he has set this legislative session.
