The Support Our Schools petition campaign has been a success. Repealing the terrible bill that gives enormous tax breaks to people who give money to private schools *will* go before the voters in Nebraska. And so, the Lancaster County Election Commissioner now claims he’s been getting calls from people who want to remove their names […]
