I would first like to thank all of the candidates currently running for any public office. Everyone should appreciate your efforts. For some elections people are begged to run. This year we have a plethora of qualified citizens.


In Nevada’s race for the at-large council position, I’m endorsing Jason Sampson.Since moving to Nevada five years ago, Jason has immersed himself in our community, working hard to make Nevada a better place for all of us. Jason filled a vacant position as an at-large city council member; spent many hours helping on the Lincoln Highway Days Committee helping to plan, organize, set up and tear down (all the things that go unseen). He donates his time weekly to mentor a young man for the last three years. He has donated his time to help organize and help work at the Lincoln Highway Days Parade. He has donated his time to help with the Story County Freedom Flight. He also spends his spare time as a Mason, to help them raise money for the Backpack Buddy Program and Scholarship Program. (A program that gives away thousands of dollars each year for graduating students). He does all of these for the good of Nevada. Jason is not one to beat his drum or say “look at me”, he just puts his head down and gets things done.


With that said, I hope you’ll join me on Nov. 5 in voting for Jason Sampson for at-large city councilman.
