State Senator Amanda McGill announced her candidacy for Nebraska State Auditor in 2014.
“I have spent my career in the legislature working across party lines to bring significant change to our state," McGill said. "When problems arise, like the failed privatization of foster care, I have been a leader in developing and passing reforms. If elected, I will continue the good work that our current State Auditor, Mike Foley, has done of holding government accountable to the people.”
McGill has represented District 26 in northeast Lincoln for the last seven years. She was elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. She has chaired the Urban Affairs Committee since 2009 and also chaired the Children in Crisis Task Force during the Safe Haven crisis. McGill serves on the Judiciary, Business and Labor, and Children's Behavioral Health Oversight Committees, “It’s my experience in effective collaboration with my legislative colleagues, state agencies, and the people of Nebraska that makes me the best choice to be the next State Auditor of Nebraska.”
McGill will be going on a 15 city kick-off tour across the state to meet with members of the media and local supporters from January 2-5, 2014. The cities on the tour include: Lincoln, Omaha, Fremont, South Sioux City, West Point, Norfolk, Columbus, Grand Island, Hastings, McCook, Sidney, Scottsbluff, North Platte, Lexington, and Kearney.
