Speakers

 

 

Senator Laura Ebke

Senator Ebke was elected to the Nebraska Legislature, representing LD 32, in November of 2014. Originally a member of the Republican Party who described herself as "a conservative libertarian", Laura changed her registration to the Libertarian Party in 2016, and she is thought to be the first Libertarian member of the officially nonpartisan Nebraska legislature. Senator Ebke is currently running for reelection and hopes to use the experience she’s gained over the last 3+ years to build Nebraska's future through careful analysis of policy and a critical eye to the needs of the taxpayers. Senator Ebke will be speaking about the exciting future of the Libertarian Party.

Kirsten Tynan
