On Friday, President Joe Biden named former state Sen. Kate Bolz as Nebraska’s USDA Rural Development Director.
Bolz represented the 29th District in the Legislature district from 2013 to 2021. She was the 2020 Democratic candidate for Nebraska’s First Congressional District seat.
Said NDP Chair Jane Kleeb: “Kate Bolz will travel the state making sure rural communities are listened to and have the resources to solve problems at the local level. President Biden appointed a leader, partner and ally of rural communities and the Democratic Party is looking forward to having Kate Bolz in this critical role.”
