Senator Opening Draws Interest

The interview process is underway this week in naming the replacement for Senator Pankonin. Gov. Dave Heineman received 12 applications from individuals interested in representing Legislative District 2.

The Cassgram reports the applicants: Robert Apprich, Robert Cooper, R. Paul Lambert, Peggy Moore, Gregg Rhoades and Annette Wiles of Plattsmouth; Jerry Bond, Avoca; Craig Buescher, South Bend; Doug Koozer, Eagle, Richard Krystof, Springfield; Robyn Larson, Weeping Water and Ron Nolte, Murray.

In an earlier news release it was noted that Heineman can also choose someone from outside the application list.
