LINCOLN, NE—Congressman Mike Flood (NE-1) today announced that longtime Lancaster County Commissioner Deb Schorr will serve as the District Director for the First Congressional District. Schorr has served as a Commissioner for Lancaster County since 2002 and has lived in Lincoln for nearly 45 years. Schorr brings a wealth of knowledge on local government issues and understands the importance of providing excellent constituent service.
Flood says – “I’m incredibly excited to have Deb join our growing team in the role of District Director. This is an extremely important position, as it is my goal to provide the very best constituent services possible. I have no doubt that Deb will effectively manage our team both in Lincoln and across the first district. Her ties to the business community and depth of knowledge on local issues will prove invaluable. Nebraskans can rest easy knowing that with Deb at the helm, our district office and staff are ready to serve the people of the first district.”
Schorr has extensive experience in issues ranging from infrastructure funding, economic development, and tax policy. While juggling both her professional career and raising her family, Schorr has remained an active community volunteer, currently serving as a member of the Cedar Children’s Foundation Board of Trustees and as a member of the Lincoln Community Foundation Board of Trustees. Schorr has been selected three times by the Lincoln Journal Star as one of the 20 most influential women in Lincoln and was elected to the Burke High School Alumni Hall of Fame. Schorr will continue to serve as County Commissioner through the end of her current term, which expires at the end of this year.
“I’m honored to join Mike Flood’s staff and work to find solutions to our nation’s biggest challenges for Nebraskans across the first district and the entire state. I’ve admired the Congressman’s previous work in the State Legislature and have no doubt that he will continue to do great things as our representative in Washington,” said Schorr. “As District Director, my highest priority will be providing unmatched constituent customer service. With so many issues impacting families and communities across this district, Nebraskans need someone fighting for them both in Washington and back home. Congressman Flood is exactly the type of representative we need, and I am excited to help him achieve success for our state.”
Schorr grew up in Omaha and graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business. Prior to serving as County Commissioner, she worked as an auditor for the former FirsTier Bank, as an Executive Assistant to Governor Kay Orr, and as a private fundraising consultant. She and her husband Mark, a Lincoln attorney, have been married for almost 40 years and are the proud parents of two daughters (Allison Zach and Melissa Schorr), a son-in-law (Jake Zach), and a new grandson (Landon).
