BEATRICE – Wrapping up his second term as a county supervisor, Chairman of the Gage County Board, Myron Dorn, is transitioning toward his new job of State Senator, from the 30th District. Dorn defeated Don Schuller of rural Wymore in a competitive race for the seat.
Dorn, who farms in the Adams area, feels his service as a county official will help in understanding the issues at hand, as a state lawmaker.
:14 “very helpful”
Dorn is retaining 30th District staff members Janet Anderson and Barb Dorn, who currently work with retiring Senator, Dr. Roy Baker of Lincoln. Myron says both are experienced and will provide a measure of continuity.
:25 “after that”
Dorn says he’s been through two days of orientation, a mock committee meeting and a mock general session.
He spoke of potential committee assignments.
:24 “about that”
Because of State Capitol renovation with heating, air conditioning and window upgrades in the southeast ground floor level, Dorn says thirteen new members of the legislature will likely be using offices located on the 8th, 11th and 12th floors. Most new senators will be on the 11th and 12th floors of the capitol.
The Nebraska Legislature’s new session begins on January 9th.
