Opinion: Rory Reid again dominates debate



roryreid-150x150-5011289-5909979Last night Brian Sandoval once again proved to Nevadans that he has no plan for the short- or long-term future of the state. He has no plan to balance the state’s budget. He has no plan to create jobs for the nearly 15 percent of Nevadans looking for work.

And his “plan” for education revolves around $533 million in cuts to our already struggling education system.

In comparison, Rory Reid shared his six innovative plans for the future of Nevada. Rory offered details for creating jobs, reforming ethics laws, reinventing our schools, balancing the state budget, improving higher education and using renewable energy to achieve economic diversity.

And Reid’s plan to balance the state’s budget includes no new taxes and zero cuts to education.

Reid shared these plans last night in the statewide debate. Brian shared . . . well, Brian shared nothing, perhaps because the powerful special interests that recruited him to run for governor didn’t give him any talking points.

“It’s shameful that with only 10 days until early voting, Brian Sandoval has said absolutely nothing about creating jobs or balancing the state budget,” said Mike Trask, spokesman for Rory 2010. “Rory Reid showed tonight that he is the only candidate with plans to turn the state around. The choice is clear: Rory is the only candidate of substance.”

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.
