1943: Frank Heinisch, secretary of the Omaha Education Association, went to Lincoln seeking legislation to repeal the four-year-old Omaha school primary election law. State Sen. Harry Foster said he was considering introduction of a school primary repeal bill based on information from Heinisch that it would save the school district $8,000 in election expense every two years. Sens. Charles Tvrdik and Peter Gutoski advised Heinisch they would fight the primary repeal bill. “The primary bill was needed for more representative government and nothing has occurred since to make me change my mind,” Tvrdik said.
