How would you describe yourself to voters?

Chris has been a proud Nevadan for the past 5 years and works as an insurance agency consultant helping agents grow their small business. From 2017 to 2020, Chris actively worked as a captive and independent insurance agent, helping Nevadans find healthcare options on and off the marketplace.

Chris also spent 2 years working for Pollen, a touring travel and entertainment tech company here in Las Vegas. He also is a professional Esports player and commentator and can be frequently seen on live streams casting events at the Aria, Luxor, and across the country.

Chris has been Libertarian his entire life, and believes that Nevadans should have the personal freedom to make their own decisions, as long as those decisions are not infringing on, or are hurting anyone else. Chris is a viable alternative to the divisive duopoly and is one of the few active candidates campaigning in the race.

What do you see as the top issues in this campaign?

Occupational Licensing Reform

Healthcare

Education

In your opinion, how would you rate the state’s response to the pandemic? Why?

I believe that the state of Nevada was extremely reactionary and based their response around nearby states. As a result, our tourism economy suffered and plunged for a few years. The mask mandates proved to be ineffective and forced many Nevadans (including me) to become unemployed and small business owners to close their doors for good.

Education and local government officials have long asked lawmakers to change the way the state assesses property taxes. That includes raising the current tax threshold. Should lawmakers consider raising those thresholds? If not, what is the best way for governments to raise money for local programs?

With rising inflation, I don't believe that government officials should be raising property taxes to raise money for local programs. Depending on the nature of the program and the utility that a fellow Nevadan may receive from it, you could have an opt-in system that allows for individuals to contribute to programs that are important to them. Individuals that opt to not contribute however cannot receive any benefits from the local programs.
