LINCOLN — State Sen. Lynne Walz of Fremont announced plans Monday to seek reelection to the Nebraska Legislature next year.

A registered Democrat, Walz was elected in 2016 to the District 15 seat, representing Dodge County. She is a real estate agent and former teacher who also worked as a care provider for people with developmental disabilities.

Since taking office, she has worked on legislation aimed at increasing mental health services in schools and improving the lives of people with disabilities. She also championed legislation to protect first responders who are assaulted in the line of duty.

Walz ran for lieutenant governor last year on the Democratic ticket.
