Last Friday, November 9, I attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the state capitol grounds for a monument dedicated to military members from Nevada who lost their lives in war, and the Gold Star families they left behind.
Afterwards, I was pleased to have a chance to thank the keynote speaker, outgoing Governor Brian Sandoval, for the honorable and dignified manner in which he has led our State over the past eight years.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him and his family for years, throughout his numerous public service positions, which included state assembly member, Nevada Attorney General and federal district court judge. As Governor, Brian Sandoval honored his late mentors, Governor Kenny Guinn and State Senator Bill Raggio, by always trying to do what was right, and in the best interests of all Nevadans. In doing so, he consistently ranked among the most popular governors in the United States.
His wise and compassionate leadership will be missed. Best of luck, Governor, in whatever your future holds.
