Kirner, Petzak Compete for Assembly District 26

Posted: Updated:

In Assembly District 26, Randy Kirner is an incumbent who has served one term and has a background in business and education. He has a no-nonsense challenger who has spent the last 23 years in security with the state prison system and in the priesthood.

Kirner says creating jobs is the top priority for Nevada and says a bill he introduced last session is helping. It was AB 202.

"So far that bill has resulted in about a 1,000 jobs and tens of millions of dollars in money for companies that have moved here," he says. "Manufacturing companies relocated to Reno. I think I'm making a difference."

He also says he realizes not much will actually get done in Carson City unless legislators compromise and work together.

"If you want to get something done in this state you've got to work together and not just with people who all think like you do." he says. "You have to bring them across them across."

His challenger is Rodney Petzak whose background is in security with the state prison system. His issue is education funding and he is very clear on where it should come from.

"We're spending a small fortune to entice businesses to come here and not pay taxes and not fund education," he says. "Somebody has to pay the cost of the people here and it all falls on the little guy and that's just wrong. We need to get companies to pay more to operate here."

One thing they both agree on is a need for more transparency in Carson City.
