Campaign themes


Livermore posted the following to his campaign website as a "platform for this coming legislative session:"[1]

1. Keep taxes at a minimum. There are ways to reduce the cost of government without raising taxes on businesses or individuals.
2. Keep Nevada employed. This also means keeping employees of state and local government employed since they comprise about 40 percent of the workforce in our city.
3. Listen to business. Keeping businesses healthy to support our economy is needed more than ever in this economic downturn. I support the Governor’s efforts to reduce unnecessary regulations.
4. Keep our state business-friendly. The Governor is waging an important campaign to attract new businesses to the state and to our region. I am in total support of his new economic development plan.
5. Work for transparency in government. The voting public needs to be kept aware of what seemingly goes on “behind closed doors.”
