Photo above shows CD-3 candidates Dave McKeon, Victoria Seaman, and Senator Scott Hammond, the Republican candidates for CD (Congressional District) 3. They all spoke at the Republican Club meeting on September 9. Ed Williams, campaign manager for Dave McKeon, also spoke about the Nevada past, present and future Republican situation. Each of the candidates has supplied us with a personal message or a biography as follows.
By: David O. McKeon, Republican Candidate for Nevada Congressional District 3 (pictured below at left with his wife, Krystle) Our country is best when we: - Honor our Veterans and ensure they receive their earned benefits - Enforce our laws - Wisely spend our hard-earned tax dollars within a balanced budget - Deliver skill based education for good paying jobs - Have healthy families and patient-centered healthcare There’s the rub. It takes a bold leader to go beyond words and take action. When I won the election as Clark County Republican Chairman in 2013, I pledged we would work together to turn Nevada red in a “tidal wave”. I boldly stood up to then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. With your support, we won historic victories in Nevada for Republicans in 2014 and I will boldly do it with you again in 2018. I am David O. McKeon and I am again seeking your support to represent you in Congress. My wife Krystle and I look forward to sharing our Plan to Win with you at the September 9th meeting of the Republican Club of Sun City Anthem or at McKeonForNevada.com.
By: Victoria Seaman, (pictured below second from left) supplied the biography below: In 2014, Victoria Seaman was the first Republican Latina elected to the Nevada Legislature in state history. Victoria was elected by her colleagues to serve in the leadership role as Assistant Majority Whip of the South. She was appointed to serve on the Committee on Commerce and Labor (Vice Chair), the Committee on Judiciary, and the Committee on Legislative Operations. Victoria brings her 25-years plus in business, into her campaign to represent the taxpayers and voters of CD 3. She was one of only thirteen of sixty-three legislators in the 2015 Legislature to vote against the largest tax (commerce) increase in Nevada history. She proudly stood by her campaign promises to reform education while opposing new and higher taxes. As an entrepreneur, Victoria created and managed Day Spa’s and designed and manufactured a high-end Esthetician product line. Victoria oversaw the daily operations of both companies, and after growing both companies successfully, she sold them in 2004 and 2009, respectively. Victoria is currently a Business Broker with First Choice Business Brokers in Las Vegas.
By: Senator Scott Hammond (pictured below, second from right, with three of his children) My name is Scott Hammond, and I’m running for Congress in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. As a former high school teacher, I saw firsthand the struggles that students in Nevada’s education system face, and that’s why, when I was elected to the Nevada Senate, I made education my top priority. Together, we created new opportunities and choices for Nevadans including Education Savings Accounts (ESA’s). I was proud to have been the sponsor of that legislation, and I was proud of the thousands of Nevadans who signed up for an ESA. Providing these opportunities is common sense – it’s the type of common sense that we need to see in Washington, DC. I’m running for Congress to improve our education, work to foster a small-business friendly environment, and stand up to the Washington DC establishment that has stood in the way of Nevada’s growth for too long. If you agree with me that we need conservative leadership, I would appreciate your support.
