(Lincoln, Neb.) Today, Lt. Gov. Lavon Heidemann is resigning from the Office of Lt. Governor.
Heidemann offered the following statement at a news conference in the Governor’s Office this morning.
It has been overwhelming and humbling, all at the same time, to receive so much support and encouragement from people all across this state. It is the people who have worked with me, who know me best, and know my character that realize statements that have made about me are not who I am.
This has been a difficult situation, and after much thought, discussion and prayer, I have decided that for the good of my family, for the Office of Lt. Governor, and for the future of Nebraska, I am resigning today from the Office of Lt. Governor, as well as withdrawing as running mate for Pete Ricketts.
For the past 10 years, it has been an honor serving my constituents and the citizens of Nebraska. I am proud of what we have accomplished and grateful for the opportunity to serve Nebraskans. I love this state and I am forever thankful for the people of this state who have faithfully supported me. I wish you well.
Gov. Dave Heineman made the following statement:
This is a sad day for the State of Nebraska. Lavon Heidemann has been an outstanding public official, both as a State Senator and Lt. Governor.
He is very well respected in this State Capitol regardless of your party affiliation. However, circumstances changed yesterday when a judge issued a protection order. Last night, Lavon and his wife met with me in my office at approximately 9:30 p.m. He apologized for what occurred and told me he would be resigning.
I have said many times that as public officials we are held to a higher standard of conduct and we should be. This is an unfortunate situation, but Lavon is doing what is appropriate by putting his family first and stepping down as Lt. Governor.
Heidemann was sworn into office on February 13, 2013. Heidemann is a farmer and livestock producer, and is a volunteer firefighter. He was elected to the University of Nebraska Board of Regents in 2012. Prior to his time as a Regent, Lt. Gov. Heidemann served as a State Senator for Legislative District 1 from 2005 to 2013. As a member of the Legislature, he served as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee for six years.
