LAS VEGAS – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer released the following statement applauding Governor Sisolak’s State of the State speech, urging support for our elected Democrats as they fight to bring relief to Nevada:
“It’s with pride and gratitude that we support Governor Sisolak in bringing millions of dollars in federal investment to Nevada. Democrats have worked tirelessly to ensure that the working people of our state receive the relief they deserve and the support they need. As our state recovers from the devastation of the Covid-19 pandemic, these funds won’t only help us rebuild Nevada but will lay the foundation for a stronger, more resilient, and more prosperous future.
“Time and time again, Nevadans have responded to uncertainty with determination and to hardship with hope. Thanks to the resilience of our communities, the leadership of Governor Sisolak, and the advocacy of our elected Democrats, our beautiful state is once again welcoming visitors from across the country and around the world. In this critical moment, we cannot afford to slip backward. While Republicans are planning to raise taxes on millions of Americans, Democrats continue to fight for the safety and wellbeing of our nation’s working people. We call on all Nevadans to stand with our governor as we work towards completing Nevada’s recovery.”
