Local Nebraska State Senator Tim Gragert says he will not be seeking a second term in the Legislature this year.
Gragert was elected to the Legislature in 2018. After winning the Primary Election in a crowded field of six candidates, Gragert went on to win the General Election and has represented District 40 since being sworn into office in January 2019.
Serving in the Legislature, Gragert has been an advocate for water quality, veterans, agriculture, broadband to better serve the northern counties of Nebraska, and he has worked with colleagues to deliver more property tax relief.
When elected, District 40 included Boyd, Cedar, Dixon, Holt, Knox and Rock counties in northern Nebraska. After redistricting by the Legislature late last year, District 40 will now include Antelope, Cedar, Dixon, Holt, Knox and northern Pierce counties.
