Daly, Espinosa Compete for Assembly District #31

Posted: Updated:

Republicans have the edge in Assembly District 31. They currently hold that seat and Richard "Skip" Daly currently holds the job. And after one session he says he needs to go back.

"We have a lot of issues and problems in the state of Nevada," he says. "I want to continue that work and make a difference for the state of Nevada. I think I can do a good job at that."

He says 'how' this state moves forward will be a challenge for business and for education. He feels that while efficiencies pay off, we really do need to consider more revenue and more revenue sources for schools.

"You've got property taxes and margin taxes, gross receipts and service taxes...some are more attractive than others but we need to look at them all. And we really need to find a broadbased tax so we're not depending on gaming fluctuations."

David Espinosa is challenging Daly for that seat. He says taxes are the last thing to consider if we want to instill confidence in the economy. And he says there are other ways to bring education up to par.

"We need to re-invest and be smarter about how we spend what we already have," he says.

He'd like to see the pipeline to students streamlined. And he wants to see the funds for administration costs separated. Espinosa is in I.T. and data management and actually sees the future of our economy there too.

"Data centers are fantastic from a cross section," he says. "They bring good jobs for energy, good jobs in education and high tech jobs. It's a win-win for Nevada. We have the infrastructure, we have the environment and we have the resources. Now it's just a matter of more technology and creating the legislation to bring them here."
