Heineman Appoints Retired Colonel To Legislature

Gov. Dave Heineman announced his appointment of retired Col. Tommy L. Garrett of Bellevue to represent District 3 in the Nebraska Legislature.

Garrett, 59, is a small business owner in Bellevue and a 26 year veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

The announcement follows revelations that Patrick M. Shannon, who was appointed on Friday to position, owes the state $16,000 for campaign-disclosure violations during an unsuccessful 2004 legislative bid.

At the news conference announcing the appointment, Secretary of State John Gale administered the State of Nebraska Oath of Office.
