Don Kavan, retiring incumbant, has endorsed Nancy Meyer for his seat on the NRD. A longtime Nebraska farmer, he served for 46 years as Board Member for Sub-District 7 of the Lower Platte North NRD. Here he is congratulating Nancy on becoming a candidate for his seat.
The Lower Platte North NRD is a big district — over a million acres — and wherever you live in it, Nancy will be on your ballot on November 6, 2018. That’s because every board member in the LPN NRD is elected as if at large.
The Lower Platte North NRD covers parts of these 7 Nebraska counties: Boone, Platte, Madison, Colfax, Butler, Dodge, and Saunders. See district map here.
