SENATOR JOYCE WOODHOUSE STATEMENT ON GOP RECALL EFFORT


Henderson, NV – Recently re-elected Nevada State Senator Joyce Woodhouse released the following statement today on the news that Republicans have started a baseless effort to recall her and elect her failed 2016 challenger, Carrie Buck.

“It has been an honor to be elected three times by the voters of Senate District 5, and I’m proud of what we accomplished for Nevada kids and families this past legislative session. This is an abuse of the recall process by individuals who are unfortunately still bitter about the results of the last election. I’m grateful to my colleagues and constituents for the outpouring of supportive calls, texts, and tweets. If Republicans do get the required signatures, I’m confident voters will make the same decision they already made last November.”

Senator Woodhouse is a retired 40-year educator and a proven champion for Nevada’s kids. From fighting to protect our access to health care, to passing a weighted funding formula for our K-12 schools and supporting critical apprenticeship and job training programs, Senator Woodhouse always puts the needs of our state’s working families first.
