Governor Pete Ricketts has named Mike Jacobson, President and CEO of NebraskaLand Bank (North Platte), as Legislative District 42’s representative to fill the vacancy left by Sen. Mike Groene’s recent resignation.
Sen. Jacobson will finish former Sen. Groene’s term, which runs out in January 2023; he intends to run for election to the post in the 2022 general election. Three other candidates from North Platte have filed for the post as well.
Sen. Jacobson served as Chair of the NBA in 2009. NBA President and CEO Richard Baier said, “It is exciting for the NBA to have another banker in the legislative body! The NBA is grateful for bankers like Mike who share their talents for the greater good of Nebraska.”
Congratulations, Sen. Jacobson!
