Economy/Diversification

Nevada has grown substantially in the last two decades thanks in part to the growth in the casino industry and the consistency of mining.  However, since our recent economic downturn we have seen that we cannot continue to depend on these few business sectors for a sustainable and consistent jobs market or revenues for public programs like education.

It is my goal to diversify our economy by attracting new businesses that want to take advantage of our natural resources for new energy and our vast and open space for business in sectors like transportation and shipping.  Our hard working populations are also ripe for businesses to utilize for expansion. I will work hard to attract new types of business so that our economy is not so fragile during an economic downturn. I am committed to retaining our young professionals to stay after they finish college or return to start their careers and families in Nevada.
