NV Dems Chair Statement on Senator Debbie Smith

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on news of the passing of Nevada Senator Debbie Smith:

“Debbie Smith was a giant in the Nevada Legislature who fought tirelessly for Washoe County and Nevada’s working families. No one knew the state budget more or fought harder for more education funding than Debbie. Last session, when she was courageously fighting cancer, Debbie still made sure to get to the legislature to vote for the historic increase in education funding. No one in this state cared more about improving education for our kids than Debbie. I am proud to have called her a friend. On behalf of every Democrat in Nevada, I extend my thoughts and prayers to her family.”
