Freshman Reno Assemblyman Randy Kirner Announces Reelection Bid

By Nevada News Bureau Staff | 3:42 pm February 27th, 2012

CARSON CITY – Assemblyman Randy Kirner, R-Reno, today announced he is seeking reelection in District 26.

Under Nevada’s new court-approved redistricting map, the district retains the areas of Incline Village and Crystal Bay at Lake Tahoe and portions of the Washoe Valley, and adds areas of south Reno.

“Our economy and jobs are on the top of everyone’s mind,” Kirner said. “My goal is to introduce and support policies that create pathways to put people back to work. I’m also eager to see continued progress on our educational goals at all levels from kindergarten thru college. I view education as the key to future economic success.”

Kirner was one of only two true freshman legislators to serve on the powerful Ways & Means Committee in the 2011 legislative session. He also served on the Education and Transportation committees.

Kirner said he was successful in passing a jobs bill in the 2011 session as well as several other pieces of legislation. He co-sponsored many of the education reforms and worked with other members of the Ways & Means Committee to support a state budget that reduces spending by $500 million over the biennium, a first in Nevada history.

Kirner is a retired executive from International Game Technology and has a doctorate in organizational leadership.

Kirner currently serves on the Interim Finance Committee and the Interim Retirement and Benefits Committee. Kirner and his wife, Peggy, have been married 45 years and have two children and five grandchildren.
