New State Senator Named
LINCOLN (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has selected the mayor of Plattsmouth to replace Louisville Sen. Dave Pankonin in the Legislature. Heineman announced his appointment of R. Paul Lambert, 61, during a news conference this morning. Het was to be sworn in later in the day at the Capitol. Lambert was among 12 applicants for the District 2 seat, which covers Cass, Otoe and Sarpy counties in southeast Nebraska. Heineman says he picked Lambert because of his experience in local government. Pankonin resigned to focus more on his job as president of the family-owned Home State Bank of Louisville.
