Campaign themes


Bocanegra provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Clark County:[4]

"It is an honor to be serving on the Board of Directors for the Evergreen School District. Providing a quality education to every student is my top priority. I believe in a safe learning environment that provides learning opportunities that aid all students to reach their highest potential. With my years of management experience in the financial industry, I am committed to sound financial policies and stewardship. Because of my service on local boards with the little league and the chamber of commerce, I am successful collaborating with our community partners to make decisions that will benefit our children."

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[7]
