Hughes excited for new legislative term
State Sen. Dan Hughes was overwhelmed with the support he received during last week’s general election.
Hughes, of Venango, won the Nebraska Legislature seat for the 44th District, against opponent Stephanie L. Malcolm, of Palisade, with 77 percent of the votes in the 10-county district.
“They must think I’m doing a good job,” Hughes said. “I’m very grateful for their support.”
The Nebraska Legislature will begin session on Jan. 9 in Lincoln.
Before session starts, Hughes will continue refining the bills he’s been working on.
“I’ve got several bills that I’ve worked on over the summer,” he said, “some very specific to the 44th District; some more specific to the state.”
He’s also been talking to people and getting their impressions on those bills.
