Nebraska Democrats Mourn the Passing of Senator J.J. Exon
LINCOLN, NE--Nebraska Democratic Party Chairman Steve Achelpohl released the following statement:
"With the passing of former Governor and Senator J.J. Exon, the Nebraska Democratic Party sends our deepest condolences to the Exon family and friends. Senator Exon has left us, but his spirit and dream of bringing "the good life" to all Nebraskans lives forever.
"Senator Exon is the father of our modern Nebraska Democratic Party, and we pledge to honor his legacy by fighting on behalf of Nebraska's working families to ensure tomorrow is always better than today.
‘Until his final breath, Senator Exon continued to support Nebraska Democrats in many capacities, and even joined us in Boston as a delegate to the 2004 Democratic National Convention. His strong will and desire for a strong State Party will never be forgotten. It shall be our duty to live up to his examples of leadership, and to continue carrying on his vision of making Nebraska ‘the good life' for future generations. We will miss him dearly."
Please post any memories, experiences, or personal stories about the father of the modern Nebraska Democratic Party. Thank you.
