FREMONT – District 15’s state legislative representative, Lynne Walz, will not run unopposed on the 2020 election ballot. David Rogers of Fremont has filed his campaign papers with the Nebraska State Accountability and Disclosure Commission.
Rogers is seeking election to the Nebraska Legislature in District 15, which encompasses all of Dodge County. His campaign has stated that his primary goal is property tax relief.
Rogers touts himself as an entrepreneur with a background in the military, education, and business. He is the owner and President of Professional HPP Services, a company that repairs and services ultrahigh pressure equipment. Rogers is an Adjunct Professor at Bellevue University in Cyber Security with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Management from Southern Illinois University, and a Masters in Computer Systems Management from Creighton University. He is also a United States Air Force veteran, formerly stationed at Offut AFB.
He has also served as the former Chairman of the Dodge County Republican Party. In 2015, as the newly minted Chairman, Rogers said, “I have watched the GOP become the inclusive party, whatever that means, and continue to sell out to the left in the name of compromise,” in a Facebook post to the Dodge County Nebraska Republican Party’s page. “I am a life-long republican,” finished Rogers.
The formal filing date for office is not until December 2, 2019. Rogers’ filing with the State Accountability and Disclosure Commission indicates that his campaign has spent or received $5,000 in campaign funds, or intends to do so.
