Action Backed just wrapped up three projects for New Energy Voter, an effort to get out the environmental, progressive vote in Nebraska.
The other key component of the vision for New Energy Voter is supporting young people who decide to take the plunge and run for local office. If you’re passionate about working together with people to make things happen on the ground where you live, why not run for school board, city council or a public power district? It certainly is tough work, and it’s not for everybody. But to move the needle politically, hard-working candidates with principles are definitely needed.
