Meet Dan Hughes, a Nebraska wheat producer, member of the Nebraska Wheat Board and state senator.
Hughes said his uncle’s political pursuits and his parents’ community service—including his father’s more than 30 years of service on the Venango school board—set examples that helped put him on a path to the Unicameral.
In the agricultural community, Hughes said, helping neighbors and friends is a way of life, and serving on organizations such as the Nebraska Wheat Board and the Nebraska Farm Bureau is how he gives back to the agriculture industry. Serving as a state senator continues that effort.
“I get a lot of enjoyment helping my fellow farmer,” he said. “I just like being busy. I’m not happy unless I have about six balls in the air at the same time.”
