Today, U.S. Senate candidate Shelley Berkley issued the following statement responding to recent articles on Reno in the Los Angeles Times and New York Times:
"Recent articles on the demise of Reno from the Los Angeles Times and New York Times couldn't be more wrong. Many in Nevada are struggling, and much work remains to be done in order to get the economy back on track. However, out-of-state organizations parachuting in and labeling Reno a dying city is offensive and inaccurate. Not only will Reno come back, it will come back stronger than ever if we start putting middle-class families first and prioritize job creation. Fighting for Nevada middle-class families must be our number one priority and we cannot rest until all families in Reno, and across Nevada, have access to good-paying jobs."
