Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Nevada State Assembly District 9 — incumbent Steve Yeager (D) and Ryan Fleming (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Democratic Party controls both chambers of Nevada’s state legislature. Nevada is one of 14 states with a Democratic trifecta.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?
- “I believe in our democracy. We should make it as easy to vote as possible so every eligible voter who wants to participate in our electoral process can do so without having to scale artificial and unnecessary barriers.”
- “I believe in a woman’s right to choose abortion.”
- “I believe that education is the gateway to success and that, to improve our education system, we must hold both the local school districts and the local school boards accountable.”
