Congratulations to Walter Paul of Alamo on his recent election to the office of Cornhusker Boys’ State Governor. Originally from Uganda, Governor-Elect Paul comes to us from Omaha, Nebraska and will be formally sworn into office tomorrow morning in front of the entire delegation. Paul will serve as Governor into June of 2014.
On Friday morning, gubernatorial candidates Jacob Lambert and Walter Paul debated in Kimball Hall, just an hour before the gubernatorial general election. Each candidate voiced their opinion on the various issues facing our state, including agriculture, marijuana regulation, stem cell research, and personal views in politics, among others. Check back later today for the results of this election!

On Thursday evening, gubernatorial candidates Jacob Lambert and Walter Paul squared off in their first of two debates before the general election for Cornhusker Boys’ State Governor. This debate was in a town hall format, with 2-3 delegates from each town in attendance asking questions. Both delegates seemed to have a great grasp on the issues facing our state, which will make for a very interesting debate tomorrow morning.
