0

In the race for Douglas County Commissioner, two candidates are vying for votes in hopes of filling the position. Mary Ann Borgeson hopes to retain her seat in District 6, while John McCann hopes to make a change there for the first time since 1995. KETV NewsWatch 7 has a message for voters of both candidates. Borgeson hopes to keep the job she has held for 27 years – Douglas County Commissioner in District 6. She is now chair of the board, but says her passion is greater than ever. “It’s because of my experience, what I’ve learned and what I’ve been able to do throughout my tenure on the board to make things better for the people we serve,” Borgeson said. Borgeson says she wants to continue focusing on mental health and criminal justice for adults and youth. “We have our long-term care facility, our community mental health center, our adult corrections, our juvenile detention center, our sheriff, our 911. So you see, we have important services that we have the monitoring and that affect people’s lives on a daily basis. And those are the ones that I want to continue to not only improve, but also find ways to become more efficient and reduce costs,” Borgeson said. His opponent, McCann, is a local nurse. He says he’s never run for a public position before, but says it’s an opportunity for voters to attract the younger generation. “I’m ready to learn and come in and, hopefully learning from those in the older generation while passing the baton to the younger generation. And I’m interested in maintaining that for a while and passing on knowledge,” McCann said. McCann hopes voters will give him the chance to look at increasing mental health services, work to better nurture the parks and keep young talent in the subway.” If we can give our younger generation a reason to stay here and say there are opportunities here in Nebraska and Douglas County, to stay here to live here, raising a big family, doing certain things. It’s a great opportunity for them too,” McCann said.
