A vote for Lisa Ortega is a vote for cleaner air, cleaner water, ideas that create less commute times, and encourage community and neighborhood building by working where we live. I promote outdoor school gardens, after school programs and a better education system (almost worst in the Nation).
Our District lies in Clark County, which received an F grade from the American Lung Association for air quality. We deserve better than that. I will fight hard for legislation that improves our air quality by proposing incentives for business that hire employees within their own zip codes. This will help reduce pollution, traffic congestion, and commute times for all.
The health of Nevada's water resources are critical for our survival. Locally, the water that runs through District 18's wetlands park feeds into our drinking water in Lake Mead. As a state legislator, I will work to find funding so that our waterways are cleaned of large debris and these areas (and many other places in Nevada) are not used as dump sites. Let's demand clean water and cleaner, safer neighborhoods.
Wind, solar, and geothermal energy solutions will provide cleaner air and new, good paying jobs. Unemployment rates in District 18 are higher than the state and national averages. I will fight for programs that provide training and clean energy jobs for our residents in District 18, and other neighborhoods that need jobs.
We can work together to curb graffiti, report streetlights that are out and sidewalks that have over 1" lift to provide safety for our residents. I have met folks who are out there, cleaning graffiti themselves, and I applaud your efforts.
We are all under incredible stress due to COVID19, but together, we can work toward a brighter future. I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
