In Her Own Words - Jill Derby

“Why are Americans fed up with career politicians in Washington? Because the same members of Congress who voted to give themselves a pay raise last week, voted against one for Nevadans who are working minimum wage jobs this week. That’s not leadership – that’s embarrassing.”

“Nevada needs a Representative in Washington who will take decisive action to reform the relationship between Congress and the special interests. The people of Nevada’s second congressional district can count on that from me.”

“I am passionate about quality public education, I am committed to affordable health care, and I believe we can have stronger national security without government intrusion into our personal freedoms. These are my priorities.”
