A former recipient of a housing voucher; Autumn Sky knows the how life changing having safe & secure housing can be. She currently serves on the Housing Foundation for Sarpy County tirelessly advocating for adequate housing for all income levels.
INTENTIONAL ECONOMIC GROWTH
Economic growth must strengthen small businesses while preserving community assets that attract employers.
Autumn Sky inherited business sense and determined work ethic through her family's small business in rural Columbus as a fifth-generation Nebraskan.

SUSTAINABILITY & GREEN INITIATIVES
