Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy shared a number of positives regarding the states economic and educational climate during a talk given at the Hastings Noon Rotary Club Friday afternoon.
The former Hastings mayor and city councilman who is running for governor in 2014 expounded on the state's success of late in growing jobs and improving education, touching briefly and vaguely on such controversial topics as the Affordable HealthCare Act and the Gov. Dave Heineman's efforts to abolish the state's inheritance tax.
After thanking rotary members for their role in supporting the International Rotary Club's efforts in combating polio, Sheehy shared how fortunate he feels to be representing the state as lieutenant governor. That role has allowed him to indirectly promote the city of Hastings as well, he said.
