For a spot on the Clark County School Board, parent activist and volunteer Erin Earlene Cranor — easily the most promising School Board candidate to enter the fray in years — is campaigning for the District G post. … Well-versed on the district staff’s tactics of runaround, Ms. Cranor says “reform has to originate between the student and the teacher in the classroom.” Voters can start by electing the refreshing Erin Cranor. …
For university regent in District 3, incumbent Kevin Page, who favors a reduction in force, consolidation of services, limited tenure and more selective admissions to universities, is a better choice than Ken Lange, a former head of the local teacher union.
In the lieutenant governor’s race, incumbent Republican Brian Krolicki faces Democrat Jessica Sferrazza, a 10-year member of the Reno City Council.
The lieutenant governor’s principal duty is leading the state’s economic development efforts. Mr. Krolicki, a former two-term state treasurer, has an excellent understanding of what it takes to form and attract investment capital and how Nevada’s tax climate offers advantages to prospective new businesses. …
But voters can’t forget that the lieutenant governor steps into the state’s top job if the governor can’t serve. Mr. Krolicki is far better prepared to lead Nevada. The Review-Journal endorses Brian Krolicki for lieutenant governor.
Question 2 would create a state appellate court. … The main concern here is that any new court would be a drain on the already bloody state budget. … But it’s not debatable that growth in this state has strained the judiciary, which is a vital and legitimate function of government. An appellate court has the potential to help streamline litigation at all levels, particularly taking a burden off the Supreme Court, which has already taken important steps to deal with its growing caseloads. The fact that this can be done without the need for new facilities — as proponents vow — puts it over the top. Vote yes on Question 2.
