John Murante:

Nebraska needs a State Treasurer with experience running a business and a proven record of conservative values. I am running because I have both. As former President and CEO of Big Fred's Pizza, which was started by my grandfather Fred Bruning in 1965, I know how to manage money and people. I have signed both sides of a paycheck and know the meaning of hard work. As a conservative Republican State Senator, I have provided leadership on important issues such as ensuring that not a single penny of taxpayer money goes to abortion providers. That is why conservative leaders have united behind my campaign including Governor Pete Ricketts, Senator Ted Cruz, Lt. Governor Mike Foley, Treasurer Don Stenberg and fmr. Governor and Treasurer Kay Orr.

John Murante:

Government works best when it is limited. All around the country, we see big government violating the religious freedom of its citizens, taxpayer dollars being sent to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood, and outrageous spending leading to high taxes. As State Treasurer, I will ensure that every tax dollar is respected and honored. The truth is, tax dollars don't belong to politicians, they belong to the people of this state. Tax dollars represent time spent away from families and the hard work of the people. As a person who has run a business, I understand and respect that fact.

John Murante:

First, the treasury of the state must be well managed. We have seen what happens when State Treasurer's do not have the necessary experience and background to serve in the office; hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars can be lost or wasted. I will bring a small business background to the office and ensure that every tax dollar is well spent. Second, I will work to make our college savings account and financial literacy programs the best in the country. Too many kids these days lack basic financial skills such as developing a budget or making change at a cash register. Finally, I will work with the Legislature to develop pro life, pro family public policy.

John Murante:

I am passionately pro life from conception to natural death. To me, pro life is not simply a belief, but an action. We need state leaders who have proven themselves as aggressively fighting for the pro life cause. I have done that. From helping to lead the fight to ensure Title X tax dollars are not given to abortion providers, to carrying pro life legislation such as LB 59, to working closely with organizations like NFA, I have kept my promise of leading on pro life issues.
