How would you describe yourself to voters?

Out going, go getter, personable, I am a person that does what is right.

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

water resources, education, healthcare, veteran affairs. agriculture, many more.

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate Governor Sisolak's handling of the pandemic? Why?

5 neutral. I believe we were faced with unprecedented times and the leadership of the state acted in what way in which they knew at that time what needed to be done. However, when it comes to mandates it should have been only done when the federal government made it into action. Such as masks and "social distancing" in the early months of spread after that its up to we the people to decide how we handle our health. The government only merely provides recommendations. kinda like health insurance.

As governor, what specific steps will you take to improve education in Nevada?

Evaluate what's current, make necessary changes on what needs to change for not only the students but the faculty as well. After all they are our future. if that means that we are seeing more students and less teachers per population of classrooms we need to ask ourselves why. is it pay? is it population of students increase.

What they are teaching in all Nevada schools. Implementing new courses that will actually prepare students for the "real world". Financial courses, taxes, maybe specific trades introduction. making Nevada a reason for people to say education is great again here.

In many ways, Nevada’s economy has recovered from the pandemic. However, the state has seen some of the fastest growing home and rent prices in the country, more than 10,000 former casino workers are still out of work and inflation threatens to undermine the state’s working families. As governor, what would you do to protect the economic interest of Nevada’s families?

Great question! first of all I would like to know why they are still out of work if all jobs in casinos are back in motion. Is it because of vaccine mandates? or our they still receiving benefits from the state. Also protecting Nevada renters with a maximum limit on what home owners are allowed to charge rent maybe with basis of home valuations. is the homeowner trying to sell the home from the renter. We also need to train our future generations for any upcoming new innovations
