|Nebraska Attorney General|
Hilgers' professional experience includes working as a clerk for a federal appellate judge and owner of his own law practice. He attended college at Baylor University and received his law degree from the University of Chicago.
Hilgers' website highlights the following campaign themes:
Job and Population Growth
- Excerpt:"In the short term, we need to identify growth opportunities while encouraging business expansion in Nebraska. In the medium- to long-term, we must invest in our educational system, develop and nurture our pipeline of entrepreneurs and small businesses, and create a more favorable tax and regulatory environment that will help attract and retain talented individuals and promising businesses."
Taxes and Spending
- Excerpt:"By reducing the tax load on our families and businesses, we can help provide them with more of their own earned dollars to spend, save, and invest. Nebraska is required to balance its budget, and so taxes are directly linked to spending. I strongly support reducing spending and eliminating waste so that we can reduce the tax burden on our communities."
- Excerpt:"I strongly support eliminating bureaucracy, streamlining and reducing costs and providing resources directly to those who are most important in our educational system. I strongly support the increased use of technology in the classroom to meet the twin goals of helping to reduce costs and helping our children be prepared for a 21st century economy."
- Excerpt:"The link between our medical schools and health care is a direct one. Nebraska is fortunate to have two excellent medical schools as well as other fine educational institutions that train our nurses and other health professionals. By investing in those institutions and increasing the supply of health care resources we can help drive down costs and improve access to needed care."
Culture of Life
- Excerpt:"Among other possible legislation, I support increasing the availability of adoptions and supporting our foster care system to help provide loving and caring homes for our children."
