“The board was overwhelmingly amazed at Mr. Reid’s response to our association candidate questionnaire, as well as his face to face interview with the member leaders representing all areas of Nevada,” said NSEA President Lynn Warne. “His commitment to K-12 public education in Nevada is admirable and we are excited we have a candidate committed to fighting for our issues in and out of Carson City. It will be our distinct pleasure to work with him as he shapes his education policy and campaigns throughout this great state.”
In addition to Reid, Republican contender Mike Montandon submitted a questionnaire and was interviewed. Gov. Jim Gibbons also submitted a questionnaire but declined the interview.
“The choice was clear. Rory Reid had specifics on what he plans to do for K-12 public education and supports the issues we fight for every day,” Warne said.
