Letter to the Editor

Served people well

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I was very disappointed to hear that Senator Ben Nelson has decided not to run for re-election but I certainly respect his decision. I've always felt Sen. Nelson had the best interests of the people of Nebraska uppermost in his mind both as governor and as a United States Senator. Like many registered Independents, that's the first and really the only quality I look for in a politician: Is he or she serving their constituency? Ben Nelson not only served them ... he served them well. He will be missed tremendously as Nebraska's statesman but I'm betting his service to the state and the nation is far from over.

Paul (Sam) Curley,

Papillion, Nebraska
