8. Doesn’t Cater to False Narratives
PASS/FAIL. Thibodeau has done predominantly well in this category. However, every now and again her statements fall into the false narrative category.

9. Acts/Serves/Talks/Promises in the Best Interest of Others – Type of Leader
UNDETERMINED. Many attribute huge success to Thibodeau as Chair of the Douglas County Republican Party.
10. Prior Involvement/Achievements in Liberty Minded Efforts or Government
PASS/FAIL. Thibodeau was first appointed to the Unicameral by Ricketts where she served a 2yr term. Thibodeau also served as the Chair for the Douglas County Republican Party.

It is also notable that the support extended to NAGO and other Liberty-Minded Efforts does not precede entering the gubernatorial race.
Summary of Candidate
Theresa Thibodeau has a worrisome background, entrenched in the establishment politicians in the metro area and local medical centers. However, her recent participation and support leaves us with the an open mind. There have been several opportunities to hear Thibodeau speak at public forums, where she has made many statements that would indicate her sincere support of our values and goals.
The highlighting of potential voter fraud in the Omaha City Council elections in 2020 during the Cass County Debate is a prime example.
