Chuck Hassebrook was in Lincoln this morning, where he announced that he has chosen Jane Raybould to be his running mate Lieutenant Governor.
“I could not ask for a better running mate than Jane,” said Hassebrook. “She is a respected businesswoman, small business owner, and job creator. As an elected official she has stepped up to address tough budget issues by implementing cost cutting measures that have allowed Lancaster County to serve its citizens effectively. But the most important attribute of a leader is a good heart. Jane is committed to public service, and has pursued elected office and other leadership positions to serve the people, not to serve herself.”
Raybould accepted, saying, “I’m honored to join Chuck’s ticket as the Lieutenant Governor, where I look forward to continuing my service not only to Lancaster County, but to the entire state of Nebraska. I also look forward to campaigning and working with someone who I greatly admire and respect.”
Jane Raybould is currently serving as a Lancaster County Commissioner. She was up for re-election this year, but will be withdrawing her name from the ballot. The Lancaster County Democratic Party is charged with appointing her replacement. Jane will finish her term as a county commissioner, which ends in January 2015.
Raybould also works as the Vice President of Operations for B&R Stores, which include Russ’s Market and Super Saver. There are 18 B&R stores across Nebraska and Iowa, which are family and employee owned.
