“Local elections matter. We impact climate change with strong leaders like Heath Mello committing to clean energy jobs. We rebuild the Democratic party with strong leaders like Jane Kleeb bringing the grassroots into party,” said Senator Bernie Sanders. “Organizing is hard work but it wins elections. Nebraska Democrats are standing up with working class families to create a more connected community for real solutions.”

“我竞选奥马哈市长是为了为下一代建设一个更加热情、创新和互联的城市,”希思梅洛说。 “我们城市的工人阶级家庭正在寻找新的领导层,这就是为什么我很高兴能与参议员桑德斯和主席佩雷斯一起谈论我对奥马哈的愿景。”
