Democratic candidate for governor discusses rural education
ELKO – A panel of educators from Elko and Lander County joined Democratic candidate for governor Chris Giunchigliani during her rural tour of northern Nevada.
As part of Giunchigliani’s “Chris in Your Community Rural Tour,” the candidate arrived at Great Basin College in Elko March 10, making stops in West Wendover, Ely and Battle Mountain.
Giunchigliani said because of her background and three-decade experience as a special education middle school teacher, she felt discussions about education were lacking in the governor’s race.
“I’m the only education person actually running for governor,” Giunchigliani said. “I made the decision to get in this race as a schoolteacher who is tired of all of the talk about let’s fund education.”
