The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday selected Angi Burmeister of Bellevue as its 2023 board chair. The Board chose Jim Warren of Gretna as vice chair. 

Burmeister has represented District 3 on the Board since 2019. She was the Board’s vice chair last year. Her priorities include being a good steward of the county’s budget and tax dollars, improving the lives of people with mental illness who encounter the criminal justice system, and shepherding the county through major infrastructure projects. 

“I’m thrilled and honored to be the Board’s chair in 2023,” said Burmeister, who is also an attorney and managing partner with Berkshire and Burmeister Law Offices. “Serving in this capacity is another way to give back to my community, and I’m so looking forward to getting to work on projects that will benefit our residents now and for generations to come.” 

Those long-term projects include transforming Platteview Road into a four-lane expressway and expanding sewer service in unserved areas of Sarpy County, an effort that is expected to generate billions in economic development. 

Warren, who first took office in 2011, will serve as the board’s vice chair. 

“I’m looking forward to working with Angi and the board and the work we’ll do this year to improve the lives of the people who live and work in Sarpy,” Warren said. 

Warren previously served on the Gretna City Council and as Gretna's Mayor. He has also served on the Gretna Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.
