Travel Blogs from Fremont
... I've heard of another Nebraska Republican who has served in politics for as long as Marv has. He has now put in SIXTY years as a GOP volunteer. Isn't that incredible? He started off with the late Sen. Carl Curtis in 1954 and has served a number of Republican leaders since then.

Big crowd and lots of interesting conversations at the Fremont Golf Club as the Fremont Chamber of Commerce held its annual banquet.

Always a pleasure to be in Fremont!
... with how much they know.
Hope I was encouraging when I told them that being easy to get along with, and inquisitive, are two of the most important traits that business leaders look for when hiring and promoting employees.
That doesn't mean you can slack off in your studies . . . but I hope I got across to them that it is your character that counts every bit as much as your smarts.
