    Tony is a Bold candidate and a young Nebraskan who will bring creative ideas and a grassroots voice to the Unicameral. He was against the KXL Pipeline and eminent domain for private gain. Tony will represent South Omaha with grit and determination. As a state senator he will “work to develop further state-based incentives for wind and solar developers,” because “it makes sense for both our environment and our economy, and revenue generated from seizing the opportunities to develop our world class resources can be used to provide property taxes, alleviating the burden on low and middle income families and Nebraska family farmers and ranchers."

    We decided to endorse Tony Vargas because we believe he is the best candidate to represent District 7. As an Omaha Public Schools Board Member, Tony has worked to give local contractors and businesses a fair shot in the bidding process on projects.

    Tony Vargas is dynamic, smart, hard working, thoughtful, and understands the needs of our state. He has proven himself on the Omaha Public Schools Board, and he will do the same in the legislature. Please join me in support Tony Vargas in the primary election on May 10th!

    I’m supporting Tony because he knows what it means to be the son of immigrant parents, a first generation college graduate, a child in a working family, and he understands the value of hard work. I want a candidate who knows the challenges of everyday people and who has had to earn his way in the world because I know those experiences matter when you need someone who isn’t afraid to stand up for what’s right. His experiences mirror generations of South Omaha residents and those parallels make him the perfect candidate to protect and advocate for us.

    People deserve elected officials that are truly representative of themselves. From his work ethic to his passion for South Omaha and his understanding of issues and how they affect the community, Tony Vargas would be a representative District 7 can be proud of.

    Tony is someone who can inspire and excite people. There’s a very positive energy about him, and I know he’ll work hard to bring about positive change because I see him working hard all the time.


    Tony cares a lot about the youth in our community and the future we provide for them. Whenever I hear Tony speak about any issue he’ll potentially be faced with in the Legislature, it’s clear to me that he always considers what impact something may have on future generations.

    I strongly support Tony Vargas to represent downtown and South Omaha in the Nebraska Legislature. As a state senator, I am confident that Tony will continue to be a thoughtful leader and a strong voice for high quality public education, access to affordable healthcare, and opportunities that offer Nebraskans from all backgrounds a better life. His election to the legislature as the first Latino to represent Omaha will be historic and is an incredibly important step in ensuring the Nebraska legislature truly reflects the diversity of communities across our state.
