Aspen Institute

Dear Friends:

I'm in Colorado this weekend as a member of the Aspen-Rodel Fellows Program. Our topic is: Democracy, Community, and the Individual.

I can't properly explain how humbling it is to be part of a group that is comprised of so many young, dynamic and incredible leaders. Yesterday evening I was approached individually by four or five elected leaders from other states who wanted to congratulate me on our transparency website, NebraskaSpending.com. I think they were most impressed by how little we spent to create ours when compared to other states like Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texas.

Speaking of NebraskaSpending.com, expect a big announcement next week!
