Gov. Heineman Expects to Apply for UN Presidency

(5-22-14) Governor Dave Heineman says he hasn't yet applied for the University of Nebraska presidency, but he expects to make a decision in the next few weeks.  The Republican governor acknowledged on his radio call-in show this week that he was looking seriously at the job, which came open with the departure of President J.B. Milliken. Heineman said Thursday that he wants to continue in public service, and the presidency would allow him to keep pursuing two of his top priorities as governor: Promoting education for young people and creating jobs.  Heineman has previously deflected questions about his interest in the job, at one point saying he wasn't interested. Milliken announced in January that he was leaving to become chancellor at the City University of New York.
