Platform: We are at a crossroads in our great state and we cannot solve our problems by doing things the same old way. Nevada needs a governor who can provide innovative solutions, someone with experience on the ground bringing real results and providing real opportunities for our working families. I believe the experience I have can benefit the entire state, improving the quality of life for all Nevadans.

As a fifth-generation Nevadan, I have spent nearly my entire life here. I have raised six children in this state and I understand the pressing issues facing us in education, health care, and the environment. But most important, I see Nevada's promise and I believe I have the ability to help us achieve it.
