|We need visionary and decisive leaders in Carson City, not legislators beholden to powerful unions or corporate interests. If left unchecked, political cronyism will turn Nevada into a corporate-owned wasteland, not a state for the people and their families. I will bring leadership, integrity and common sense back to the Nevada Republican Party.
The overwhelming focus of my legislative efforts will be on addressing the high levels of unemployment in Nevada, while working to maintain funding for social services and taking a practical approach to tax reform. We need to do more to make Nevada more attractive to a wide range of businesses. By reducing energy costs, removing barriers to competition, encouraging rural development and supporting Nevada entrepreneurs, we can get Nevada working again.
I was an active-duty member of the US Air Force for nearly seven years. I served three years in Nevada at the Tonopah Test Range in support of F-117A Stealth Fighter operations. I was awarded two Achievement Medals and a Commendation Medal for my service during Operation Desert Storm. I received an honorable discharge in 1994.
I look forward to continuing to serve the great state of Nevada.
