SENATORS CANNIZZARO, FORD RESPOND TO BASELESS RECALL EFFORT

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Senator Nicole Cannizzaro (District 6) and Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford released the following statements today on the baseless Republican-backed recall effort:

“I have spent my career as a prosecutor going after some of the worst criminals in our state, and I am not intimidated one bit by the shady special interests and desperate politicians behind this manipulation of the recall process,” said Senator Cannizzaro. “This plan to subvert the will of voters in my district has been an aggressive and dishonest smear campaign from day one, and I will be watching the signature verification process closely this week. I delivered for my constituents this past session when I passed laws to crack down on elder abuse, protect victims of domestic violence, and put Nevadans back to work – and I will defend my record of results to anyone. It is the greatest honor of my life to represent the people of Senate District 6. My work is just getting started.”

“Senator Cannizzaro has been an incredibly effective legislator, and our caucus will continue to stand with her in the fight against this underhanded recall effort,” said Senator Ford. “Republicans are trying to lead our state down a dangerous path of corrosive partisanship and nonstop elections. This recall scheme is an affront to the voters of Senate District 6 and it will not succeed.”

Senator Nicole Cannizzaro is a lifelong Nevadan and a product of Nevada’s public K-12 and higher education systems. She earned her law degree from the UNLV Boyd School of Law and joined the Clark County District Attorney’s Office in 2011. As a prosecutor, Nicole has handled cases of child abuse, sexual assault, homicide, and other violent crimes. She was elected to represent Senate District 6 in November 2016.
