Senator Albrecht Wishes Administrative Assistant The Best On Her Retirement From Lincoln, Provides Highlights From Legislative Summit

WAYNE – With the fun of Halloween and trick-or-treating a northeast Nebraska Senator is reminding you to keep a watchful eye on the little ones celebrating another Fall tradition.

According to a release from the office of District 17 Legislative Senator Joni Albrecht, Nebraskans are fortunate to live in a state where they have spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Hardworking farmers can utilize a Harvest Moon as both inspiration and as a guide to bring in yet another bountiful harvest that helps feed the world.

Senator Albrecht would like to highlight Administrative Assistant in the District 17 Legislative office, Beverly Neel. Neel came to Lincoln during Senator Bloomfield’s term in December 2010 and recently retired from her work in Lincoln while being awarded for her excellence in service by the State. Of the many things she did to make a significant difference during her time at the Capitol, Beverly was instrumental in making the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance a daily practice in the Nebraska Legislature.

Senator Albrecht attended the Nebraska Chamber’s Manufacturing Summit in La Vista. Staff had the opportunity to take part in a unique opportunity to connect with Nebraska manufacturers as well as state and national industry speakers. The purpose was to exchange ideas and information and identify emerging trends. Covid has greatly impacted manufacturing at home and around the world. Much of the discussion centered around how to assist with a suffering global supply chain and low numbers in the workforce. Nebraska has the 4th lowest unemployment rate in the county. Governor Ricketts also shared that several both in-state and national companies are expanding significantly at their Nebraska locations, adding many attractive jobs to the state

Also, District 17’s own Sheryl Tietz from Jesus Our Savior Lutheran Preschool in Bancroft was recently awarded the Early Childhood Educator of the Year. Mrs. Tietz is special to the family of Senator Albrecht with their three grandchildren; Isaac, Ben and Evelyn have all been blessed by her love and kindness and dedication.
