A member of the Nebraska state auditor's staff has joined the race for state auditor.
Larry Anderson said Thursday that he will seek the job held by his
boss, State Auditor Mike Foley, who is running for governor.
Anderson says his experience as a state
auditor and a Nebraska Army National Guard officer makes him an ideal
candidate for the job.
He says he would like to
see a greater connection between taxpayers and the office, which keeps
Nebraska taxpayers informed on how funds are being handled or
Anderson will face Sen. Charlie Janssen, of Fremont, in the Republican primary.
Sen. Amanda McGill, of Lincoln, is running as a Democrat.
