Incline Village Republican Women host GOP candidate forum
An enthusiastic group of candidates and voters gathered to meet and hear the choices in the upcoming primary and general elections on May 10 at a Republican Candidates Forum hosted by the Incline Village/Crystal Bay Republican Women.
Approximately 70 people attended the reception at the Chateau in Incline Village and listened to the candidates speak about their platforms.
The offices and the candidates represented at the forum include:
Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents: Carol Del Carlo
U.S. Senate: Sharron Angle, Joe Heck (represented by Ken Minster), Tom Heck and Robert X. Leeds
Nevada State Assembly District 26: Jason Guinasso and Lisa Krasner
IVGID Board of Trustees: Steve King, Paul Longshore, Judy Miller, Steven Thomason and Frank L. Wright
Washoe County Commissioner: Marsha Berkbigler
Washoe County School District Trustee: Bill Horn
North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District: Jim Constalupes and Greg McKay
Patricia Moser Morris, 1st Vice President (Programs) of the Republican Women, presided over the forum.
“Our club believes that it is very important to give the voters the chance to meet Republican candidates for office, especially candidates for local offices, since it can be quite difficult for voters to get to know them,” she said. “The Incline Village/Crystal Bay Republican Women are happy to do whatever we can to help voters become better informed.”
The Incline Women also presented their 2016 scholarship winner from Incline High School, Stephanie Homola.
Homola read her winning essay, which addressed why students should become politically active. Homola will be awarded $2,000 by the club, and she plans to attend Arizona State University this fall.
