Rationale

Hello ESU Leaders,
  I have some amazing news! The aggregate results from our first collection are in! 
 
Attached is a short report that details the successes we uncovered in Nebraska ESUs. Dave Ludwig had the first look last week, but now all of you are able to share this report with any and all of your stakeholders. Enjoy!
 
Given that NETA is almost upon us, it seems like a great time to celebrate this work around ESUs and innovation.
 
Congratulations! And of course, don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything you need.
 
Best,
Kristen
