He also has served as executive director for both the Omaha Alliance for the Private Sector, where he advocated at city hall and state capitol for reduced tax and regulatory burdens on small businesses, and at the Nebraska Coalition for Ethical Research, where he advocated for stem cell research that does not involve destruction of human embryos. He taught a course on American Vision and Values at Bellevue University and has served as an editorial writer for the Omaha World-Herald. He also served a four-year term as a State senator in the Nebraska legislature and a four year term as the Douglas County Board commissioner.
