Nebraska Cattlemen Political Action Committee Announces Support for Jim Pillen
Yesterday, the Nebraska Cattlemen Political Action Committee (PAC) announced their support for Nebraska gubernatorial candidate, Jim Pillen.
Nebraska Cattlemen PAC Chairperson Brenda Masek stated, “We are pleased to announce our support for a fellow agribusinessman who shares our values and interests in preserving and promoting livestock agriculture in Nebraska.”
The process of selecting candidates supported by the Nebraska Cattlemen PAC includes input from members who represent every sector and scope of the beef cattle industry.
“It’s an honor to have the support of the Nebraska Cattlemen, an organization that represents thousands of Nebraska ranchers and cattle feeders,” said Pillen. “Both of us believe in the power of agriculture to grow Nebraska and make it a more prosperous state for us and our children. Together, we can fix our broken property tax system, grow our economy, and defend our conservative values.”
As a farmer and veterinarian, Jim Pillen understands the grit and resiliency required to succeed in livestock agriculture.
“As someone who helped build a successful family livestock business in Nebraska, Jim understands the concerns of the agriculture industry because he experiences them firsthand.” Masek stated. “Jim won’t be a politician analyzing our industry from the outside and making crucial decisions on our behalf – he has walked in our shoes, knows our struggles, and will be a strong supporting voice in the Capitol and beyond.”
As governor, Jim Pillen will lead the charge in protecting the state’s economic engine by spearheading efforts to address Nebraska’s tax imbalances and supporting the unique needs of rural communities so Nebraska continues to thrive for decades to come.
“Jim has committed to controlling spending, balancing the “three-legged stool” of Nebraska’s tax code, valuing ag land fairly, and reforming state aid to education.” Masek stated, “Jim also understands that when farmers and ranchers prosper and our rural communities do well, our entire state benefits.”
Jim Pillen has spent his career building, hiring, and investing in rural Nebraska. Nebraska Cattlemen members look forward to having a farmer, veterinarian, and fellow agribusinessman in Nebraska’s executive office with vast experience in livestock agriculture.
