First, as every longtime reader knows, I don’t believe there’s any such thing as a “non-partisan” race or appointment.
People use these so-called “non-partisan” elected and appointed positions as stepping stones to higher offices, including judicial seats. Remember, Shelley Berkley got her start as a “non-partisan” member of the Board of Regents before becoming a tax-hiking Democrat congresswoman, and Brian Sandoval was an appointed “non-partisan” federal judge before becoming a Republican tax-hiking governor.
With that said, here are some additional Chuck’s Picks for some “non-partisan” and other down-ballot races:
State Senate District 13 (Washoe): Kathy Martin
State Assembly District 31 (Washoe): David Espinoza
University Regent, District 1: Cedric Crear
University Regent, District 4: Allison Stevens
University Regent, District 9: Ron Knecht
University Regent, District 12: Lonnie Hammargren
State Board of Education, District 1: Alexis Gonzales-Black
State Board of Education, District 3: Ed Klapproth
Clark County School Board, District A: Kevin Donovan
Clark County School Board, District B: Rose Moore
Clark County School Board, District E: Patrice Tew
Clark County Commission D: Wesley Cornwell
Washoe County Commission, District 1: Marsha Berkbigler
Lyon County Commission, District 1: Chuck Roberts*
District Judge, Department 9: Scott Freeman
Carson City Question 1 (Library tax hike): NO
Incline Village GID Trustee: George Del Carlo
Sun Valley GID Trustee: Vicky Maltman
* Mr. Roberts opponent is Bob “Puddin’head” Hastings who’s is not only a goofball, but got over half of his campaign money from one special interest source. Voters Beware!
