Adam is running for County Attorney because after six years in the Legislature and on the Judiciary Committee he knows that the elected officials who matter the most when it comes to criminal justice reform are on the local level. Among many other common sense reforms, Adam will end cash bail for most minor nonviolent offenses, stop automatically charging nonviolent drug possession offenses as felonies, hire a Public Advocate to bring accountability and transparency to the office and invest in problem solving courts and end the sex assault kit backlog.

Meet Adam

Senator Adam Morfeld is a 5th generation Nebraskan born into a Marine Corps family. The son of a single mother for many years, Adam learned the importance of hard work, dedication, and effective policies that support Nebraskans like his mother.

Adam managed a grocery store stockroom for several years and worked part-time for his local newspaper while attending community college. He then worked his way through college and law school at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

In 2008 Adam founded and is the executive director of a non-profit that employs over 100 staff that works to instill civic leadership skills in young Nebraskans, build civic health in our communities, and ensures our democracy is accessible to working Nebraskans, families and seniors. 

In 2014 Adam was elected to the Nebraska Legislature to represent Northeast Lincoln with 68 percent of the vote. He was re-elected in 2018 to a second term. He serves on the Education and Judiciary Committees. He also served on the Department of Corrections Special Investigative Committee. As the member of the Judiciary Committee for the last six years which oversees all criminal justice issues, Senator Morfeld has introduced, co-sponsored and passed numerous criminal justice reform laws. 

Adam is running for County Attorney because after six years in the legislature he knows that the elected officials who matter the most when it comes to criminal justice reform are on the local level. He will end cash bail for most minor nonviolent offenses, stop charging nonviolent drug possession offenses as felonies and invest in problem solving courts. He will also end the sex assault kit backlog among many other common sense reforms.

In his free time, Adam enjoys volunteering, working on his home, Husker football, spending time with his family, running, and the outdoors. Adam also teaches American Government and Public Administration.
