Re: 2018 Nebraska Elections

It would probably make more sense to merge Douglas and Washington Counties. It would give Omaha proper plenty of room to grow, and I don't think any of the cities in Washington County are big enough to avoid annexation, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

Re: 2018 Nebraska Elections

I wil definitely vote against Ricketts, though he has been kind of good helping push through asset forfeiture reform and pushing for more law enforcement accountability. Ultimately his role in helping to bring back the death penalty makes me unwilling to vote for him.
