Conservative Senator Matt Williams is running for the Nebraska Board of Regents to strengthen the future of Nebraska.
As a banker in Gothenburg and a State Senator representing central and western Nebraska, Matt has advocated for our shared conservative values and stood up for rural Nebraska families. As our next Regent, Matt will work to build a stronger Nebraska by keeping students in Nebraska, strengthening our work force, and keeping the University transparent and affordable.
ON THE ISSUES
Matt is proud of his deep Nebraska roots.
As a 4th generation central Nebraskan, his great-grandfather H.L. Williams settled in Gothenburg and started the local bank to help families have a shot at success. He grew up working on his family’s farm and then attended the University of Nebraska and then University of Nebraska Law before moving back to run his family’s bank. As a banker, Matt worked to support farmers and ranchers when they needed it most.
In 2014, Matt was elected to the State Legislature. As a State Senator, he always stood up for our shared conservative values. He advocated for meaningful property tax relief, defended Nebraska’s 2nd Amendment Rights, and supported protections of the unborn.
