Keystone Corp. endorses Nevada candidates

By ThisIsReno

SUBMITTED ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Friends of Nevada Businesses,

Private sector employees have had their salaries cut and benefits cut, and now about 195,000 Nevadans are out of work. At the same time public sector union leaders refuse to support cuts in salaries and retirement benefits of their members. They want the government to lay off public employees. The result will be a very noticeable decrease in all government services–including essential services–and they want to raise taxes on Nevada businesses and individuals.

If you want to:

1. Stop higher taxes and
2. Reduce the salaries and benefits of Nevada’s public employees

Support the following state senate and assembly candidates who have been endorsed by Keystone Corporation:

State Senate

James Settelmeyer

Washoe County

hey I thought only the newspapers and commercial broadcast television were bought and paid for by corporations.

Apparently online blogs are as well!

Way to go “This is Reno” for being a pawn.

First things first, this comment above by Zeke does not follow our commenting guidelines, specifically the one about being transparent. I’ll only allow it to make the below point.

Zeke, pay attention. This problem pops up every now and then, and usually it’s with comments like Zeke’s–derisive, vitriolic, and (obviously) uninformed. As what we think is the most transparent news site in the area, it’s disappointing that it keeps happening. We’ll make it clearer when we have the time, but it’s definitely there. That pretty much covers it.
