FINDING THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TEXT TOO TINY TO READ WELL?
If you would like to view the official language for the four proposed amendments released by the Secretary of State, which is in a larger font than appears on the ballot, and is in an easier to read format: to view online, click HERE, OR to print the document, click HERE to download the PDF from our site.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE AMENDMENTS:
We have already published two articles, one each about Proposed Amendments No. 3 & No. 4, which give basic information, history, roll call votes, and presents important questions to consider. We will be publishing similar articles on Proposed Amendments No. 1 & 2, in the next few days.
In addition, we have scheduled a presentation to discuss these issues in more depth, because we believe they reveal a great deal about Nebraska’s State Legislature and the State Senators who represent us. Many incumbent Senators are on the ballot on November 6, and we think our presentation is likely to provide insight for voters. If you’re interested in such a discussion, we’re offering two dates for voters’ convenience; click HERE for more information.
Note: To download/print the three page PDF of the ballot directly, you need only click ONE of the three images below.
Shelli Dawdy is first and foremost the mother of three children whom she has taught at home via the classical method since removing her children from school in 2001. During her early years as a homeschool mother, she worked part-time as a freelance writer. Born and raised in the Iowa, Shelli and her husband moved to the state of South Dakota in 1997, attracted to its more limited government and friendly tax environment. In 2006, Shelli and her family relocated to Lincoln, Nebraska, when her husband’s employer offered a new position. She took a break from work and politics for a time, recognizing the need to focus solely on her childrens’ schooling with two now of high school age. Distressed by many things she was witnessing on the national political scene and disillusioned about the Republican Party, she decided to start writing again, this time online. Motivated to get involved with others at the grassroots level, she networked with activists on the social media tool, Twitter. She was involved in organizing the first tea party rallies inspired by Rick Santelli’s “rant” on CNBC in February 2009. Recognizing that activism should generate on the local level, she founded Grassroots in Nebraska in March of 2009. The group’s mission is a return to Constitutional, limited government, according to its original meaning. While the group has held several tea party rallies, it’s focus is to take effective action. Among its many projects, GiN successfully coordinated testimony for the hearing of the Nebraska Sovereignty Resolution, networked with other groups to ensure a large show of public support at the hearing, and coordinated follow up support to ensure its passage in April 2010. While working to build up GiN throughout 2009, she was asked to work as writer and producer of the documentary film, A New America, which lays out how Progressivism is responsible for how America has moved away from its Constitutional roots.
