GRAND ISLAND, Nebrasla – A lady from Grand Island has been appointed as the next Deputy Election Commissioner for Hall County.
Wednesday, Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet made the announcement, recognizing Becky Rosenlund as the new incumbent.
”I am very excited to have Becky join the election team on a full-time basis,” Overstreet said. “She is passionate about elections and already familiar with Hall County elections having worked at the Peace Lutheran Church polling site and managed the Third City Christian Church polling site in 2020 and 2022.”
Additionally, Rosenlund is well-connected in the community. She is active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serves on the Grand Island Area Habitat for Humanity Faith Relations Committee, is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has served on the Grand Island Public Schools Parent Advisory Council, Shoemaker Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, Edith Abbott Memorial Library Board, and various Boy Scouts of America committees, and is completing her service as an advisory board member on the Northwest Public School Board.
Overstreet stated that Rosenlund’s teaching and editing abilities will be employed effectively in the election process. Rosenlund has taught English as a Second Language and served as a substitute teacher for Grand Island Public Schools most recently. She has fourteen years of expertise as an editor of court deposition transcripts.
”Beyond her unique skill sets, Becky also has a lifetime of exposure to elections as the daughter of a state senator in Idaho and she has hands on experience with get-out-the-vote campaigns,” Overstreet said. “Her face lights up when she talks about elections.”
Rosenlund holds a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from Brigham Young University and is pursuing a Master of Public Administration at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Rosenlund and her spouse Jon have five children and reside on Grand Island.
She is eager to begin her responsibilities on August 29. She will collaborate with Overstreet and Robyn Mays, the Election Assistant.
”Based on my experiences as a voter, and more recently, as a poll worker in Hall County, I have a high level of confidence in the integrity of our local election process,” Rosenlund said. “I am so grateful for the right to vote and have always loved participating in elections. I believe that free, fair, and secure elections are essential to preserving our liberty and way of life. I am looking forward to contributing to this important effort in our community.”
