Nebraska Sacks Former WEDC Official

Unwanted anywhere –

A woman who played a key role in Wisconsin’s economic development agency, including overseeing a $500,000 taxpayer loan to a failing construction company, has lost her job as the top economic leader in Nebraska.

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts’ office announced Thursday that Brenda Hicks-Sorensen is no longer that state’s economic development director. She had been on the job a little more than eight months.

She was previously the vice president for economic and community development for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.
