About Larissa

My name is Larissa Schultz and I am running to represent District 23 because I want a unicameral that serves all Nebraskans – not just a select few. If elected, I will work to ensure that everyone in Nebraska has access to safe drinking water, fresh fruit and vegetables, medical freedom, affordable health care, and high quality public schools. If you feel the same way, please consider joining my campaign as a donor and volunteer.

I am a lifelong Nebraskan and have called Saunders County home for more than 20 years. I am a small business owner, yoga instructor, beekeeper, and an events manager. I am the chair of the Saunders County Democratic Party and am president of the Nebraska Young Democrats.

Ensuring that everyone has access to fresh fruits and vegetables is important to me. That is why I work for a  food nonprofit that rescues retail food waste and distributes it to food pantries. Since 2020, I’ve been donating the lion’s share of produce from my own extensive vegetable garden to fight food insecurity in our communities. I am a member of the Farmers Union of Nebraska  and the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society.
