Dan Quick, a strong voice for working families
"I'm announcing my bid for re-election so that I can continue to fight on behalf of working families in Grand Island and all of Nebraska," said Dan Quick. “There’s been too much partisanship in my first three years and people are tired of the bickering. People care about the real problems they face every day, such as high property taxes on their home, safe neighborhoods, and more opportunities for their families.”
Quick was first elected to the Legislature in 2016. Since taking office, he has served on the Banking, Commerce, and Insurance, General Affairs, Natural Resources, and Urban Affairs committees. Quick also was appointed to serve on the LR296 committee, which addressed concerns about conditions of assisted living facilities for residents who suffer from mental health issues.
“I’m proud of the work we have accomplished in my first term,” said Quick. "We passed legislation that I introduced to increase access to early childhood education, to add protections so kids can't obtain tobacco and vaping products, and to protect victims of human trafficking, which passed unanimously. I also championed efforts to update building and electrical codes for the safety of residents and to clean up problem properties to turn into affordable housing.”
Quick says his priorities for a second term are values that all Nebraskans share: strong schools, creating jobs that pay well, and finding a more fair tax system for working families. “People want a representative that shares their values. But most importantly, your senator should be someone who listens, is honest, respectful, and willing to compromise to make good legislation for the people.”
