Public health policies should be based on science, not partisan politics. The delay in responding to the pandemic—at the federal, state, and local levels—has been costly. It’s past time to listen to the experts, such as those at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Nebraska Medical Center, as we create a roadmap for moving forward. Looking beyond the pandemic, Sara will work to support public health by advocating for safe opportunities to walk and bike, supporting our parks, and encouraging development that includes green spaces and allows for active lifestyles.
Sara also will work to promote public safety. We need to listen to and work with first responders and community members to adopt data-driven policies to keep our neighborhoods safe. Sara also will work to facilitate communication and build trust to help bring our community together.
