Hey all: I’m writing today because @randyessex, the new executive editor @OWHnews, is entrusting me with a new job that means a lot to me and to the paper. (1/8)
I’m being given the chance to serve readers as The World-Herald’s next political reporter. My friends know how much I care about politics, about helping government work better for the people who pay the bills. People facing the consequences of public decisions matter. (2/8)
I want the people who work for you at every level of government to hear your voices when they vote. They should feel the political cost of ignoring you. I see this job as an enormous responsibility, because I work for you, not any political party or special interest. (3/8)
A little about me: I’m political, not partisan. Grew up the dining room buffer between a rural Republican dad and an urban Rican Democratic mom. It’s how I learned the political language of both parties. (4/8)
Their squabbles showed me no party has a monopoly on good ideas. My dad used to joke about not driving my mom to the polls. My mom would smile and tell him she’d already voted for him by mail. They knew they had more in common than their differences mattered. (5/8)
I’m a Nebraskan by choice for two decades. I’ve worked as an editor and reporter in Nebraska since 1999. I also worked in state government for a spell. My jobs have taken me to all 93 of Nebraska's counties. (6/8)
Met great people at every stop. And I need your help again. To do this job well, I need your input on what stories we should be chasing, what issues we’ve missed, what angles we need to see but haven't. (7/8)
My email is always open, asanderford@owh.com, as is my phone, 402-444-1135. I will do my best to reply. Thank you for following along with all those city hall tweets. Hope you’ll enjoy the next adventure, too.

See you on the trail. (8/8)
