On May 23, people came together to celebrate Senator Ernie Chambers’ 80th upcoming July birthday. The event was held to coincide with the end of
Legislative session and bring people together to celebrate the accomplishments
of this great man. David Domina had this to say about Senator Chambers:
David Domina congratulates Senator Chambers.
“For longer than four decades, Sen. Ernie Chambers has been the "2nd house" of the Nebraska Legislature. He has accomplished exactly what
the second house is supposed to accomplish: slow matters down, force more
debate, work harder to compromise, get to more intelligent solutions.
He has endured name-calling, racial epithets, and scorn from the impatient
interests that would prefer legislating in a rush.
For every one of his many successes, and even for every time he has been
the victim of slurs and epithets, Sen. Chambers has slowed, stopped and
improved 1000 things.
For this, every Nebraskan owes Ernie Chambers, a debt of immeasurable dimension
for all the bad he has prevented and all the good he has accomplished.”
