The Fallon Post joined the Lahontan Valley News, the Churchill County Republican Central Committee, and the Lahontan Broadcasting Radio Network to host the primary candidates for the Nevada State Senate District 17, Assembly District 38, and the Churchill County Commission on Tuesday night. Detailed stories on each race will be presented in The Fallon Post Voter Guide special section which will be printed in the May 27 edition of the paper as well as being posted online.
Candidates for Senate, Dr. Robin Titus, and Jim Wheeler discussed what each sees as the top three issues facing the state and agreed that election integrity and inflation are the most important, with Titus adding access to health care and Wheeler adding education. They also answered questions from the audience regarding access to abortion, veterans’ affairs, water rights, and education.
Dr. Greg Koenig and Vida Keller face each other in the race for Assembly District 38 and during their presentations identified their top three issues. Keller sees election integrity, parental choice, and parental advocacy as the highest concerns. Koenig said the most important issues are election integrity, education, and unfunded mandates. They also answered questions from the audience about their philosophy on representative government, mining, bi-partisanship, education, and water.
The county commission candidates, Tanya Freeman, Myles Getto, Kenny Harmon, and Tom Riggins also answered questions after introducing themselves to a crowd of over 150 voters. Water, housing, and growth topped the list of topics each repeatedly addressed, along with answering audience questions on economic development, traffic, ongoing funding for recent capital improvements, public lands, NAS Fallon, and working with the Nevada Legislature.
