Marque Snow

Snow, 31, was first elected to the OPS board in 2013 and was reelected last year. He is in his second year as board president.

Snow has a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Dakota and moved to Omaha with his now-husband in 2011. He is currently the program director at the Nebraska Center for Workforce Development.

Snow, a Democrat, plans to seek the District 9 seat now held by State Sen. Sara Howard. Howard cannot seek reelection because of term limits. The district covers the Aksarben area and a portion of midtown Omaha.
