Food Security in the Nebraska CD1 Congressional Election
I'm speaking in Lincoln, Nebraska this morning to an OLLI continuing education forum on food security. The campaign for Congress from this congressional district is surprisingly close. So I sent an email to both campaigns several weeks ago, asking the two candidates - Mike Flood (Republican) and Patty Pansing Brooks (Democrat) - for statements of their views on the issue of food security. I was scrupulously even-handed in making this request, and said that I would share their statements with the public.
I have yet to hear back from Mike Flood, but Patty Pansing Brooks sent a statement about food security in Nebraska and around the world. It's at this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17B8wLmW1ryA5iqibCzNhceOoNwmm1iqg46BYFGUafgM/edit
