As our economy continues to recover, it is critical that we help working families get back on their feet.

I support the efforts on behalf of the legislature to bring thousands of new jobs to our state. Diversification and expansion of the job base are how Nevada thrives in the 21st century.

We must also do all we can to help new and existing small businesses thrive, including businesses owned by women and minorities. 

I believe we need to raise Nevada’s minimum wage, and to reward hard work by ensuring equal pay for women doing the same jobs as men.
