“Randy is a conservative voice in the Assembly who helped us fight off what would have been devastating tax increases by the Democrats. He has also fought along side me in to improve the quality of education for our kids. Randy Kirner deserves reelection to the Nevada Assembly and has my strong endorsement.”

Randy Kirner was first elected in 2010 to the Nevada Legislature and then re-elected in 2012 for a second term. His legislative experience includes serving on “Ways & Means” in both sessions. Our State budget is exceptionally complicated and the value this brings to you cannot be understated. He also served during the most recent session on the Taxation Committee and has previously served on the Transportation Committee. He is the only Northern Nevadan on the Education Committee.
Our economy has leveled out and an increase in jobs is still a focus for the state. Randy feels the best way to accomplish job growth is to maintain a tax environment that businesses can thrive in, thus helping to create more jobs and a key reason he supported a reduction in the Business Margins Tax. The Retail Association of Nevada rated Randy #1 in the Assembly and Nevada Policy Research Institute rated him in the top 20% of all legislators calling Randy an “ally of economic liberty.”
Our youth represent the future of Nevada and it is vital that we have an educated, well-informed workforce. To that end, Randy sponsored several bills in the 2013 session that included Read-By-Three to end social promotion and another to phase out the High School Proficiency Exam in favor of end-of-course exams and an 11th grade assessment to identify individual student’s remedial needs. The goal is to address remedial needs before graduation.
Another priority for Randy is veteran affairs. As a combat veteran, he knows and understands the challenges faced by our returning soldiers. Randy sponsored several bills and supported others that will assist our veterans.
Finally, Randy proudly sponsored several key health bills. Did you know, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Randy co-sponsored a bill aimed at early detection and fighting this devastating cancer. There are many issues affecting our citizens and he vigorously engaged in these conversations and debates on behalf of District 26.
Both Governor Sandoval and Congressman Amodei have praised Randy as a legislator who is willing to take on tough issues. They see Randy as a knowledgeable and well-rounded legislator. He is regarded as someone who demonstrates a sincere concern for his constituents and is recognized on both sides of the aisle as an exceptional leader who builds rapport and who understands the issues. Randy adds, “I have learned a great deal during my two sessions and believe my experience and achievements make me the best candidate in the upcoming election.”
