Rory Reid ‘vote for jobs’ tour continues

FROM SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASES

Opinion: Sandoval’s time travel budget bust would leave Nevadans in the dust

SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010

In a joint appearance on the TV program “Nevada Newsmakers” yesterday, Republican Brian Sandoval presented a dismal, backward strategy that would leave thousands of struggling Nevadans behind. Rory Reid demonstrated once again that he is the one candidate for governor with the experience and detailed plans to move our state in a new direction.

Sandoval, who for months has failed to deliver on his promise to present a plan to balance Nevada’s budget, talked about rolling the state budget back in time: to 2007. His rationale? The state population has declined slightly.

Experts reacted less than enthusiastically. Jeremy Aguero, principal of the respected economics research firm Applied Analysis, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the recession has created more demand for services like education and unemployment insurance, not less.

He also commented that many costs have increased due to market forces. “The cost of energy you can’t roll back to 2007, you can’t roll back the cost of health care to 2007,” Aguero said.

In contrast, Reid’s plan for the state budget offers innovative strategies to reform state government and balances the budget without raising taxes or cutting education.

Reid has presented six detailed plans for Nevada’s future, aimed at diversifying the economy, creating jobs, strengthening K-12 education, making our higher education system an economic engine, bringing transparency to state government and making Nevada the nation’s first energy-independent state.

“Brian Sandoval wants to do his Michael J. Fox impression, fire up the flux capacitor and jump in the DeLorean to take Nevada back in time,” said Reid. “That’s not only unrealistic, it would leave thousands of Nevadans who are unemployed or struggling to stay in their homes behind.”

Opinion: Three debates, still no plan from Sandoval

SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010

After a third hour of debate in front of a statewide audience – and just one week before Election Day – Brian Sandoval still has no plan to balance the state budget. He still has no ideas to create jobs for the 15 percent of Nevadans looking for work.

He has no plan to make Nevada energy independent. In fact – still, after a year of campaigning – Sandoval has said nothing, except that he would cut $533 million from our schools.

Rory Reid won last night’s debate months ago. He won when he offered six innovative plans for the future of Nevada. Reid offered details for creating jobs, reforming ethics laws, reinventing our schools, balancing the state budget, improving higher education and using renewable energy to achieve economic diversity.

And Reid’s plan to balance the state’s budget offers innovative reforms to make state government work smarter. It includes no new taxes and no cuts to education.

Reid shared his plans with Nevada tonight. Sandoval shared nothing except hollow talking points. And he disappointed the students of Great Basin College by failing to address their questions about education and the future of our state.

“Brian Sandoval has offered voters nothing,” said Mike Trask, spokesman for Rory 2010. “No ideas for our schools. No thoughts to help unemployed Nevadans find work. No plans to address the budget crisis facing our state. And yet he has the gall to attack Rory – the one candidate who has actually offered the voters real plans to address Nevada’s future. That’s shameful and Nevadans are seeing through it.”

Opinion: Record review shows Sandoval raised his own salary, gave himself a furniture allowance

SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010

Brian Sandoval – the man with no budget plan – enjoys talking tough about being a fiscal conservative, even though he’s the one who sued the state legislature in 2003 for a massive $830 million tax increase.

But the lawsuit isn’t the only thing in Sandoval’s record that doesn’t square with his rhetoric. He voted in 1997 to give himself a 30 percent pay raise while serving as a state assemblyman. And in 1995, he voted to give himself a furniture allowance.

That’s right: Self-defined fiscal conservative Brian Sandoval voted twice to put more taxpayer money in his own pockets.

“It’s sad that Brian Sandoval doesn’t believe voters have the right to know how he’ll balance the state budget,” said Mike Trask, spokesman for Rory 2010. “It’s even sadder that Brian Sandoval talks about government cuts while his record clearly shows he’s not afraid to vote for spending increases when he’s the beneficiary.”

Opinion: Remember when? Sandoval lied about signing pledges

SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM RORY 2010

Brian Sandoval told Nevadans for months that he was working on a plan the balance the state budget. But he was lying. Early vote is here, and Sandoval has offered no plan to balance the state budget, despite his repeated public promises.

That’s just how it goes for Sandoval. He’ll tell you anything he thinks you want to hear.

Like when Brian Sandoval told the media he has a strict policy of not signing pledges.

Only it was shortly proven Brian Sandoval has signed pledges. Specifically, in 2002 he signed the Marriage Protection Pledge, which said that he would not support domestic partnerships for same-sex couples.

It’s just another example of Sandoval lying. And it’s another example of Sandoval breaking his promise, since these days he’ll tell folks he supports the rights granted to same-sex couples by the historic AB 283.

“Brian Sandoval has spent this campaign lying to voters and refusing to tell them what he would do as governor,” said Mike Trask, spokesman for Rory 2010. “He promised multiple times that he was working on a budget plan. But he wasn’t. It’s like a child claiming to be doing his homework and instead breaking out the Playstation for a little Madden football. Brian can’t even tell the truth about pledges.”

Opinion: Sandoval’s plan to force a tax hike (w/video)

SUBMITTED RELEASE

A new Web video from the Rory Reid campaign takes a close look at Brian Sandoval’s so-called “straight talk.”

For months, Sandoval has refused to talk about how he would balance the state budget.

He promised time and time again to show voters his plan. But that was a lie. Early voting is here and Sandoval still refuses to tell Nevadans how he would balance the state budget.

But he did give us a hint yesterday. Sandoval said he would balance the state budget by forcing local government to raise taxes. Sandoval will simply pass the buck to local government.
