Nebraska,

We're all living under a banner that reads, "The Good Life." But when things don't live up to our slogan, it falls on each and every one of us to speak up and vote, otherwise no one will. After all, our elected representatives are only as good as those who vote for them.

Affordable Education

It doesn't take an economist to tell us that the cost of higher education is out of control. If our elected officials cared they wouldn't have let it get this bad, and that's why we need to let them know. Tell them that your family's income didn't raise by 296 percent since 1995, but average in-state tuition and fees at public national universities did.

Let's get real.

Vibrant Communities

It's no secret that we want to live in communities with other change makers. The traditional suburban scene isn't going to work for up-and-coming Americans-- we want access to great people, places, and things to do. Our local officials need to hear your ideas for creating and sustaining more socially, generationally, and culturally diverse communities.

Let's get real.

Wages

Getting paid a fair wage is important to all working young professionals, especially at this juncture in their career. In Omaha, the cost of living for a single adult is about $25,000, but the full-time minimum wage worker makes about $18,000. Let your elected officials know that you want something done to close that gap.

Affordable Healthcare

If only you could Web MD how to take care of yourself without breaking the bank. This issue ranks second in importance to the younger generation. Elected officials should be looking for new ways to manage growing health costs. Let your decision makers know the changes you want made for a healthier society.

Strong Economy

As a generation, we think about jobs daily-- what we want to do, how we want to work, and who we want to work for. A strong economy is the only way to ensure that we have opportunities to explore. Young professionals are the biggest driver of economic strength, and that influence will only grow. Use this momentum to hold our representatives accountable for making sound economic, tax, and budget decisions.

Let's get real.

Environment

How do we take care of what we have? Sustainability, conservation, corporate responsibility and eco-friendly are all just buzzwords if no one is behind these ideals. Our elected officials make choices that impact our environment everyday- from the President to our city council members. Protecting the environment starts with your community, one small step at a time. What are the ways we as a generation can have a lasting impact on preserving the environment for our future?
