GOV. RICKETTS SEEKING APPLICANTS TO REPLACE SEN. JONI CRAIGHEAD

Gov. Ricketts is looking for applicants to fill the District 6 legislative seat after Sen. Joni Craighead announced she would be stepping down September 8th. Craighead's resignation was especially surprising because it came just days after she confirmed that she would be running for re-election in 2018. The Governor has set the deadline for applications as September 29th, and the appointed senator would serve until January 2019.
