Goins and Smith Anticipating Round Two As Communities are Ready to Grow
8 Feb 2023
As the State of Nebraska changes leadership, with Jim Pillen succeeding Pete Ricketts as governor, two prominent African American agency directors will continue their work in state government. Economic Development Director Anthony L. Goins and Health and Human Services CEO Dannette R. Smith will remain at the helm of their respective departments. The duo are battle-tested, having helped Nebraska achieve the nation’s top-ranked pandemic response.
Speaking as they prepared to celebrate Governor Pillen’s inauguration to the state’s highest office, their enthusiasm was impossible to miss. Director Goins and CEO Smith are clearly looking forward to building on what they’ve accomplished.
