PAPILLION, Neb. — Gov. Pete Ricketts has re-appointed Michelle Andahl to a four-year term as the Sarpy County Election Commissioner.

A news release Wednesday from the county says Andahl will be sworn in for her new term Friday in the Sarpy County boardroom, with Judge Stefanie Martinez administering the oath of office.

Andahl’s new term runs through Dec. 31, 2021.

Andahl was first appointed to the post in October to complete the term of Wayne Bena, who left to take a position with the Nebraska Secretary of State’s Office. By law, the governor appoints the election commissioners for Douglas, Sarpy and Lancaster counties.

Prior to her appointment, Andahl worked for more than 20 years as an independent marketing and fundraising consultant for various nonprofits and political campaigns.
