On to November

Now that the majority of the results are in for the May 12, primary in the Legislative District 15 race, I want to thank all of those who voted for me. We plan on a vigorous effort to continue to bring our message of conservative values to the citizens of Dodge County in the coming months.

The advent of the COVID-19 virus has certainly changed the way we were able to campaign, limiting door-to-door visits, leaflet drops, and attendance at community events as well as opportunities for fund raisers and campaign events.

We were significantly outspent by a candidate who relied on raising most of her funds from political action and special interest groups out of Omaha and Lincoln. Many of these groups advocate for liberal policies that do not represent Dodge County voters.

Over the next six months our campaign will continue to spread its message of protecting the unborn, fighting for Second Amendment rights and brining tax relief to the citizens of Dodge County and the State of Nebraska as we face this COVID-19 virus and its impact on us.

We look forward to a greater opportunity to visit with residents of Fremont, Inglewood, Ames, North Bend, Snyder, Dodge, Winslow, Nickerson, Scribner Uehling and Hooper as we spread our conserve message.

Rogers Completes Catholic Voter Guide. Opponent Doesn't

If folks want to know where David Rogers stands on the issues, they need look only as far as The Catholic Voter Guide.   While the 'Guide' doesn't endorse, it certainly makes clear what candidates think and care about.  

Sadly, David's opponent didn't want to respond to let voters know where she stands.

David Rogers formally files for Legislature District 15

January 9, 2019 

David Rogers of Fremont, Nebraska has formally filed for election to the Nebraska Legislature today. Rogers is actively seeking election in District 15 which encompasses all of Dodge County.

Rogers is an entrepreneur who has a strong background in the military, education, and business. He is the owner and President of Professional HPP Services, a company that repairs and services ultrahigh pressure equipment at locations around the world. He has successfully managed many multimillion dollar projects. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Bellevue University in Cyber Security.

Rogers obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Management from Southern Illinois University and completed his Masters in Computer Systems Management from Creighton University.

Nebraska has been David’s home for over 32 years since the military stationed him at Offutt Air Force Base to support the Strategic Air Command’s underground Command Center. David is a United States Air Force veteran. He coached competitive youth soccer and Select Traveling teams for 10 years. Rogers also served as the former Chairman of the Dodge County Republican Party.

Rogers has stated that his primary goal is to ensure that Dodge County residents and Nebraska property owners get the property tax relief that the legislature has been promising for years—and failed to deliver. Like many voters he has signed the petition to reduce property taxes by 35%, understanding that when elected to the legislature he will be required to make tough decisions on spending. He will fight strongly to reduce excessive tax burdens by advocating for policies that stimulate growth, create jobs and promote spending reductions.

Rogers looks forward to actively visiting with residents of Fremont, Inglewood, Ames, North Bend, Snyder, Dodge, Winslow, Nickerson, Scribner Uehling and Hooper as he goes door to door learning the concerns of citizens in the district.

Rogers' Interview with Fremont Tribune

Fremont entrepreneur seeking election to Nebraska Legislature

·         COLLIN SPILINEK Fremont Tribune

·         Nov 19, 2019

 

Fremont entrepreneur David Rogers announced earlier this month he will be seeking election to the Nebraska Legislature in District 15 in 2020.

 

Rogers will challenge current State Sen. Lynne Walz, who was elected to the Legislature in 2016. District 15 encompasses Dodge County, which has more than 36,000 residents.

 

Rogers, who has lived in Fremont for almost 15 years and in Nebraska for more than 30, is the owner and president of Professional HPP Services, a high-pressure pasteurization company that repairs and services ultrahigh pressure equipment worldwide.

 

Rogers, a U.S. Air Force veteran, is also an adjunct professor of cybersecurity at Bellevue University. He has received a bachelor’s degree in electronics management and master’s degree in computer systems management.

 

Although candidates are not allowed to file to run until Dec. 2, Rogers said he will file as soon as he can. He has already filed with the State Accountability and Disclosure Commission.

 

If elected, the biggest goal for Rogers will be to lower property taxes, he said, as Nebraska has some of the highest tax rates in the nation.

 

“It’s killing our farmers, it’s killing our homeowners, it’s killing our vets,” he said. “And every year, I hear our politicians say, ‘We want to spend more on this, spend more on that, spend more. Spending’s not the problem.’ Spending is the problem. They just want to keep raising taxes, and it’s just frustrating for me and for people I talk to.”

 

Rogers said he wants to eliminate wasteful spending by the Legislature. He said he was glad to see senators vote to tax internet sales last year, and said the extra income should be used to lower taxes

 

 “That’s something that I’m sure they’ll be fighting about in the next session, and I’ve heard a number of senators that want to use that for spending on different things, on different projects,” he said. “But we’re still a high-tax state, so let’s lower taxes.”

 

Rogers said he was critical of Walz’s vote to override Gov. Pete Ricketts’ veto of Legislative Bill 472, which would allow counties to raise sales taxes.

 

“The governor is trying to limit spending and bring the taxes down, and we’ve continually had senators that want to go there and increase taxes,” he said. “And even at the town halls I’m listening to, they’re talking about ways to raise taxes and get more revenue. And to me, that’s the wrong way to go.”

 

Rogers said he will run an anti-abortion, pro-Second Amendment campaign. He also said although Nebraska has a great school system, he wants to make it even better.

 

“I’ve dealt with youth, I’ve dealt with adults, I’ve dealt with teens,” he said. “And I find that we have a great education system that we can make greater by putting in things that would make them able to contribute immediately in the business world.”

 

In his time spent teaching at places like Bellevue University and First Data Corporation, Rogers said he believes the education system needs to accentuate skills like entrepreneurship.

 

“I think that’s something that we need to help our entrepreneurs in Nebraska take advantage to start their own companies and to be able to hire other people and continue to grow businesses in Nebraska,” he said.

 

Other issues Rogers said he wants to tackle are those of veterans, who face low retirement pay or traveling to medical appointments.

 

“Obviously, the VA is in Omaha or down in Lincoln, so they have to travel quite a bit to get medical care,” he said. “And that’s something that is challenging for veterans.”

 

Rogers said he plans to publish a website soon and provide an email address for people to get in contact with him. He also said he plans to hold town halls to hear from people.

 

Ultimately, Rogers said decreasing taxes will keep people and companies within the state instead of moving elsewhere.

 

“If we can bring that down, then that will keep our youth here,” he said. “We want to keep Nebraskans here in Nebraska to continue to grow the state.”
