RENO – This afternoon, Governor Steve Sisolak delivered, not results, but a feckless response to Clark County School District declaring it will take a “five-day pause” for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend due to COVID-19 staff shortages.

“Steve Sisolak’s response to CCSD shutting the doors on our kids’ education is yet another sad example of his lack of fortitude and leadership on two levels: one, in standing with parents in their pursuit of a consistent, reliable education for their child and, two, in having a clear vision to lead our state successfully out of the pandemic,” said Guy Nohra, Republican candidate for Governor. “Sisolak had the opportunity to lead for our kids and their parents, and he failed. Sisolak had the opportunity to lay out a clear vision for Nevada in moving past this pandemic, but he chose to copy the path of California. Our kids deserve so much better, and I will give them vision, leadership, and results as Governor.”

Nohra was the first gubernatorial candidate to sign the Education Freedom Pledge. At a recent debate, Nohra laid out part of his plan to better Nevada’s education system by bringing parents, teachers, legislators, and unions together at the Governor’s mansion on his first day in office to collectively discuss how to pull Nevada out of the bottom of the nation’s school rankings. Nohra is also committed as Governor to advancing a school choice agenda that puts our students and parents first.
