LeAnn Ellis, I am pleased to bring a vast and varied background in public service to the Nebraska International Port of the Plains & Inland Port Authority Board of Directors. However, the most relevant follows:
Village of Hershey Board of Trustees 2002-2005; Administrative Assistant Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce/Phelps County Development Corporation 9/2005-7/2008; Village of Hershey Clerk/Treasurer 7/2009-7/2019; Village of Hershey Board of Trustees 2019-2022
I understand the inner workings of the Hershey water, sewer and street operations, I served as clerk when Greenbrier came to our area and the rail spur was built. I have personal relationships with business and community leaders as well as Village staff. I have worked closely with lawyers, engineers, auditors, the Nebraska Department of Roads, FEMA, Union Pacific Railroad and many others. After volunteering in many different capacities throughout my life, public and community service is an honor for me to be a part of and to which I am very dedicated.
