Bruning makes a stop at Backaracks for campaign

Posted: Updated:

With primary elections right around the corner, candidates are making their rounds around the panhandle and listening to the public's concerns.

Attorney General Jon Bruning met with some of those citizens at Backaracks yesterday to hear what they need from their next governor.

Bruning says that the major concern among the public seems to be that property taxes are too high.

"If I'm the next Governor, I've got to do something about it. We have to reduce property taxes and I think right now we have a great way to do that. We have a rainy day fund that has more money than the actuaries say we have. We need to return that money to the taxpayers in the form of tax relief, property tax relief and that way the legislature can't spend it. You know when that money hangs around in the state congress sometimes they figure out how to spend it," said Bruning.

He says he feels that Nebraska is proud of how it has been run and his intent is to keep the state on the same path.

Bruning later tweeted saying he was,"Disappointed in the Husker basketball loss, but enjoyed mixing some sports with politics and talking issues with friends at Backaracks in Scottsbluff."
