Rory Reid statement on Gibbons’ higher education proposals



LAS VEGAS–Rory Reid, the Democratic candidate for governor, offered the following statement after Gov. Jim Gibbons’ press conference at the College of Southern Nevada this morning:

“The governor today endorsed measures that the higher education community has sought for years,” Reid said. “Unfortunately, during the more than three years the governor has been in office, he has done nothing except harm our higher education system through a series of drastic cuts and poor decisions. As governor, I will bring a consistent voice in favor of education to Carson City. Our colleges and universities will be integral to the kind of economic growth and job creation we need to ensure a prosperous long-term future for Nevada.”

Rory Reid is the only candidate for governor to propose a plan that offers solutions for today and a vision for Nevada’s future success. Reid’s vision includes plans for the future of our state’s economy, workforce, education system, energy production and business development.
