“Seeking Business-Experienced Candidates for Public Office. Is It You?”
That's the headline on a message the Reno Chamber of Commerce sent out last week, also signed by the Associated Builders and Contractors, Associated General Contractors, Builders Association of Northern Nevada, and the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors. The message promoted a workshop for prospective candidates to be held at the real estate offices in January.
“[T]he business perspective must be brought to the table when issues such as taxes, education, transportation, energy, and many others are discussed in the political arena. Our public boards, commissions, councils and legislative bodies need leaders with experience in making a payroll, sticking to a budget, and making the tough decisions that you make every day.”
