Judge Cynthia Dianne Steel, (retired)
House of Representatives - Congressional District 1
How would you describe yourself to voters?
Dedicated, Common Sense, Loyal and a little old fashioned. I have worked for Nevada as an Assemblywoman in in 1995, as the Chief of Staff for Lt. Governor Lonnie Hammargren, as a District Court Judge in the Civil Divorce, Juvenile Delinquent, Juvenile Abuse and Neglect and the Guardianship divisions. I recently served as a Commissioned Senior Judge for 3 years per the Supreme Court Program. My skills as a neutral fact finder will assist the work to be done in Congress.
What do you see as the top issues in this campaign?
Education, Inflation, Immigration, and Election Security
What are the three greatest challenges facing Nevada, and how would you address them in Washington?
1.Education: I will work with Governors to return the control of education back to the states, eliminating the need for the Department of Education. 2. Immigration: It is time to address DACA and review the process, procedures and quality of our immigration system. Both side of Congress need to work on this national safety, health and jobs issues. Citizens and non-citizens deserve clarity. 3. Inflation: Prices are increasing faster than the cost-of-living which results in less spending power from our paychecks. In Washington I would review all options presented to curd the inflation and potential for recession.
Inflation has reached its highest levels in more than 40 years. What should Congress do to address the rising costs of living?
Editor's Note: Candidiate intentionally left blank.
Would you vote to support/oppose a federal law that guarantees women across the country the right to an abortion?
No. That is a healthcare issue and should be reserved to the States. Nevada has opted to place the matter in the Nevada State Constitution. We are, after all, the United States of America, not the Uniform States of America and each state has sovereignty preserved to it by the United States Constitution. BTW: The inflation section did not permit an answer to be typed. I don't know the definition of Option 1, so I left the field blank intentionally.
