Opinion: Rory Reid to speak in Reno Friday, Sandoval won’t



roryreid-150x150-4223393-1445974Rory Reid will speak at a Nevada Insurance Council meeting in Reno at 9:30 a.m. on Friday at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa.

The event could have been a great chance for voters to see both candidates for governor. But Brian Sandoval declined an invitation to also attend the meeting.

Sandoval, apparently, did not want to be in the same room as his opponent in the gubernatorial campaign again. Last week, after months of ducking, dodging and hiding from debates, Brian Sandoval was forced to stand next to Rory and answer a few questions in public.

It resulted in Sandoval throwing a temper tantrum and canceling a debate.

That’s because Sandoval doesn’t have anything to say to Nevada voters. The Republican candidate has no plan to create jobs for the more than 14 percent of Nevadans who are out of work.

And Sandoval’s “plan” to reform Nevada’s struggling education system includes laying off one in five Nevada teachers, taking $110 million from class-size reduction programs and pushing a voucher program that would drain millions of addition dollars from our children’s schools.

Rory Reid is the only candidate for governor to offer solutions for today and a plan for Nevada’s future success – supporting strong schools for a stronger economy. For more information about his campaign or to download his plans, visit Rory2010.com.
