Gering businessman Brian Hardin has announced his intention to run for the Nebraska Legislature for District 48, the seat currently held by term-limited State Senator John Stinner.

A 1984 Gering High School graduate, Hardin says he brings to the campaign 21 years of experience as a business consultant in strategic planning, financial services, insurance carrier plan design and commercial childcare.

During a public forum Tuesday evening at DefComp in downtown Scottsbluff, Hardin said while political power has been concentrating in eastern part of the state, it’s the rural areas that really power Nebraska. “We’re an agricultural state, that the engine that drives us. And I want to ‘grow’ people, both agriculture people and business people,” said Hardin. “Those are the two basic ideas I would like to attack, and listen to you, and find out what you think we need to do as well.”

In addition to his priorities of job creation and economic growth, Hardin said he’s conservative and believes smaller government is better government.

He also said he’s pro-life, and that ‘big government’ and ‘Big Tech’ have infringed on American’s individual rights, especially those in the first and second amendments.
