Biography provide by the candidate from his website:
Stan Vaughan is the current World Chess Federation over the board Chess Champion (1994 to present). He has also been a two time MENSA (the high IQ Society) World Correspondence Chess Champion.
His extensive background and experience in Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Economics and Auditing makes him uniquely qualified to be a watchdog after YOUR interests.
Most importantly, do you want someone watching after YOUR interests in Carson City, or those of the special interests?
A commissioned Kentucky Colonel since 1989, Stan has a passion for history, having been President of the Kyle Ranch Preservation Committee and having helped create legislation when he was a 4-H Senator to preserve historic covered bridges in that state. In 1971 he was awarded the Woodmen of the World award for being the Most Outstanding American History student in the United States. As such, he is considered one of the top constitutional issue scholars, having written award winning and highly acclaimed books on said subjects with the knowledge to protect your constitutional rights, unlike his opponent, the incumbent, who supported the unconstitutional SB 303 in 2013 which violated the Treaty (part of the Article 6 Supreme Law of the land) on the Regulation of Inter-American Automotive Traffic. What makes that particularly egregious is that Stan's opponent is a UNLV William Boyd Law School Graduate! His intentional disdain for YOUR Constitutional Rights is but one of many reasons to support Stan Vaughan for Nevada State Assembly 15.
Question: In a 140 characters, introduce yourself as if you are introducing yourself to a neighbor.
Hi, I am Stan Vaughan. You know how your Assemblyman is always taking $$ from special interests and not representing you? I can change that!
Question: Last legislative session, the major initiative was a tax increase to support education in the state. What should the major accomplishment of 2017 legislature be?
Question: If recreational marijuana is legalized by voters in this state, do you want revenue from it to fund health initiatives, research and/or youth awareness campaigns?
None of the above. Feds have just announced any passage will be null and void.
Question: Many elected officials in Clark County say they’d like to see the property tax cap changed – that its time because tax revenues aren’t meeting budgets. Is that an idea you want to see the legislature tackle?
A resounding NO on that!
Question: Do you support the construction of a taxpayer-funded NFL stadium?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
