VIDEO: Governor Gibbons podcast on recession

CARSON CITY — Governor Jim Gibbons today released a new podcast encouraging Nevadans to work together to get through these unprecedented economic times. You can view or download for broadcast the podcast at http://gov.state.nv.us/Podcasts.htm:

Hi, I’m Governor Jim Gibbons. Thanks for checking in. I’m sure you all aware of the unprecedented economic times we are all facing right now.
Sure, there are signs here and there that the recession might be bottoming out. But there are still many businesses closing their doors, many jobs being lost, and many families suffering.

I am doing everything I can fix our economic problems. I know that hundreds of thousands of Nevada families sit around their dinner table at night with their checkbook in one hand and their bills in the other. Nevada families are forced to make ends meet. Nevada government must do the same thing. As your Governor, I will make state government live within its means, just like you’re doing at home.

Building our way out of this recession will NOT be easy. Few tough jobs are EVER easy. But I have never backed down from a fight or surrendered in my life and I don’t intend to start now.

Together, as ONE NEVADA, we can get through this. We have to help each other. But that’s okay, because Nevadans are well known for helping each other. If we all work together and move the same direction we can get Nevada back at the top of every economic measurement list there is… the way it was before the recession.
We need to work together to bring prosperity back to Nevada!

Again, thanks for checking in, and don’t forget, if you have any ideas or comments let me know… just send an email to YOUR-OPINION-COUNTS-AT-GOV-DOT-NV-DOT-GOV.
Thanks, and we’ll talk to you again soon.
