A local farmer has announced plans to run for State Legislature in District 34, which includes all of Hamilton, Merrick and Nance counties and a portion of Hall County.

Fourth generation farmer Curt Friesen is looking to fill the seat currently held by Sen. Annette Dubas of Fullerton who cannot seek re-election due to term limits.

The 58-year-old Hamilton County man says he is running for the Legislative seat to "work with others to help create opportunity for small businesses and industry to create jobs in our rural communities, lower our property taxes, strengthen agriculture, invest in our schools, and maintain a way of life we can be proud of."

"If our children are going to stay in or return to Nebraska, we must make sure that good paying jobs - jobs that allow a good standard of living - are available for them," Friesen added.

Friesen is currently serving as president of Hamilton County Corn Growers, vice chair of the Nebraska Corn Board, vice chair of the National Corn Growers Public policy action team, and is a member of the Hamilton County Farm Bureau. 

Additionally, he previously served on the board of the Upper Big Blue Natural Resources District and various other committees.

Friesen has been married to his wife, Nancy Friesen, for 38 years; they have four children and five grandchildren.
