Gov. Ricketts’ Labor Day Statement

Lincoln – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued the following statement in observance of Labor Day:

“Susanne, the kids, and I would also like to wish everyone a safe holiday weekend, and remind you to drive safely and buckle up if you have plans to travel in the coming days.”
