SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Nevada attorney and local conservative blogger Orrin Johnson filed his candidacy for Nevada State Assembly District 25 today, citing a need to return fiscal responsibility to our state, communities and classrooms.
“We’re in serious trouble, both here in Nevada and all over the country,” Johnson said. “I’m running for Assembly District 25 because I want my little girl to grow up in the same free and prosperous community that my wife and I did. If elected I plan to deal with the big issues of taxes, economic growth and education reform.”
Johnson has a long history of public service. He’s a father, a civil servant and a taxpayer. He served for six years as a surface warfare officer in the Navy, deploying overseas three times. As an attorney here in Reno, he volunteered to coach a high school mock trial team, assisted with speech and debate events and taught elementary students about our legal system.
“I’ve watched our State Legislature attempt to fix our recession with more taxes and more spending,” said Johnson. “I’ve watched Carson City look more and more to working people and small businesses to fill holes in the budget created by irresponsible decisions in the past. I’ve watched a once thriving business environment stagnate because small businesses and entrepreneurs don’t know which tax will double next or which regulation will cost them too much money to keep a new employee. I’m tired of seeing our education system at the bottom of every list in the country while our lawmakers reject innovative ideas that would empower parents and save money.”
“I understand we need to hit the ground running if we want to win on June 8th and that is what I plan to do,” said Johnson. Johnson’s campaign hit the ground running tday, launching a campaign website, an autodial phone call to active voters of AD 25 and an email campaign.
