Gov. Pete Ricketts is in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Christmas holiday, celebrating the holiday with extended family. The governor did issue a statement prior to leaving:
“Christmas is a time for us to celebrate and give thanks for God’s gift of Jesus Christ. Throughout the year, the birth, life, and death of Jesus is a source of inspiration and hope for many.
“Susanne, the kids, and I wish all Nebraskans a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. If you have plans to travel, we encourage you to buckle up and to enjoy this time with your family and loves ones.
“As we gather over the holidays, we also think of the men and women serving our country around the world, and continue to pray for their safe return.”
