Two Husch Blackwell attorneys who ran for public office this campaign season were victorious in their respective races.
In Omaha, Hal Daub — a Partner in the firm’s Governmental Affairs practice — was elected to the University of Nebraska Board of Regents. Composed of eight voting members, the board supervises the overall operations and expenses of the four-campus system. Daub will represent District 8, which comprises the suburban Omaha area. This continues his career in public service, including four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and more than six years as the mayor of Omaha.
In St. Louis, Scott Sifton — a Partner in the firm’s Business Litigation group — was elected to the Missouri State Senate. He will represent District 1 in southeastern St. Louis and defeated the incumbent. First elected to the statehouse in November 2010, Sifton served a two-year term in the Missouri House of Representatives.
