Cinco de Mayo

Today is Cinco de Mayo!

Although it's not the Cinco we're used to in South Omaha, this year, we are still able to celebrate with our closest loved ones at home.

Nebraska and Mexico have an amazing relationship that I urge you to explore. Did you know Nebraska exports nearly $2 Billion in goods to Mexico every year? In fact, we trade more with Mexico than any other country.

We have a unique opportunity in Nebraska, precisely because of our Mexican and Latin American communities, to become a regional or national leader in trade, immigration policy, and manufacturing.

These are the types of opportunities that await Nebraskans, if we have the courage and ambition to seek them out. In Spanish we say "Sí se puede" or "Yes you can." This is the attitude I will bring to the Legislature in 2021.
