State Senator Pete Pirsch announced his candidacy for Nebraska’s State Auditor saying, “The next State Auditor needs to be someone that focuses on protecting the taxpayers’ money from government waste and fraud, instead of politicizing issues for personal political gain.” After his announcement in Omaha, Pirsch will embark on a 14 city tour of the state of Nebraska visiting Fremont, Norfolk, O’Neill, Ainsworth, Valentine, Chadron, Alliance, Scottsbluff, Ogallala, North Platte, Kearney, Grand Island, and Lincoln.

Senator Pirsch, an Omaha native, is a life-long Nebraskan. Pirsch has earned multiple degrees from both the University of Nebraska-Lincoln & Omaha. He is currently an attorney in the Douglas County area.

Pirsch began his career in public service criminal prosecutor for the city of Omaha. Next, Pirsch was elected to the Nebraska Legislature.

“I believe the skills I gained as a criminal prosecutor and a State Senator have enabled me with the tools to have the watchful eye that is necessary to keep government agencies honest and accountable to the taxpayers,” said Pirsch when discussing what qualifies him to be the next State Auditor.

Pirsch says he is a fiscal conservative and advocate for limited government.

“The State Auditor has a responsibility to the taxpayers of Nebraska to ensure their hard earned tax dollars are not being abused by the government and bureaucrats,” commented Pirsch. Pirsch’s campaign will focus on governmental accountability and responsibility, ensuring that Nebraska can continue to strengthen its strong economic position.

Pirsch concluded by saying, “It is my intention to work hard to prove to the people of Nebraska that I am the best person to fight government waste and fraud and protect the taxpayers of the State of Nebraska. This is going to take a grassroots effort, and I hope to meet Nebraskans from all across the state along the way.”
