The general election has ended, the voters have spoken. I’m sorry to say I didn’t win the office I ran for, won’t be in the Legislature to represent the people in District 14 and Nebraska during the next four years. I am proud of the race I ran and grateful to all of the many people who supported me in every way: with advice, donations, encouragement, and time.

Thank you. I owe you a debt I can never repay.

In this election, I received votes from across the political spectrum. That’s what I worked for–bringing people together.

Senator isn’t a title I need to continue down the path of helping the people in my community, area, district, and state. I will continue listening to you, supporting you, looking for solutions and giving all I can to help make a better life for those in need.

My family and I are going to take a deep breath. We’ll enjoy spending time together, knowing even more how precious that time is. We’ll continue to be the tightly-knit family unit these last seventeen months have proven us to be. We’ve discovered how much each of us can give and how much we each have to learn, and neither of those things will stop.

My service didn’t end with my military career and it won’t end with an unsuccessful race. I still believe in the importance of what I worked for. I now have the time to work harder for each goal.

My Issues list will continue to grow.


My name is Jeff Parris and I’m running to represent you in the Nebraska Unicameral.

I was on active duty in the United States Air Force for 23 years. My family moved to Offutt AFB in 2002 and I retired here in 2010.

I earned my undergraduate degree from Peru State College, in Peru, Nebraska. After retiring, I received an M.B.A. from Creighton University.

I believe Nebraska needs to improve state support for our public education system, increase the availability and affordability of mental health care, and protect and encourage our small businesses.

I’m running for the state legislature in Legislative District 14. I’d like to take those twenty-three years of serving our country to the Unicameral, where I can use them to improve Nebraska.

Thank you for visiting my website. My contact information is on every page. Reach out to me if you’d like to learn more about my ideas. More importantly, please contact me with what matters to you.

I would appreciate your vote in November.

“As I’ve been out listening and engaging neighbors in Papillion and La Vista, it’s become clear to me that taxpayers want someone to look out for the middle class. That’s why I’ll put the values I learned in the U.S. Air Force–integrity, service, and excellence–to work every day on our shared priorities of property tax relief, strengthening our public schools, and connecting our middle class families and veterans to quality jobs.”
