Las Vegas – To the editor of The Public Slate.
“Working people know that the path to prosperity starts with electing candidates like Catherine Cortez Masto who support a raising wages agenda. We have the opportunity to win equal pay, paid leave, fair scheduling, and higher wages.
We are also on the verge of beating back bad trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership that harm our communities. That is why Catherine Cortez Masto is the right choice.
In Nevada, we have been hard hit by the economic downturn. Catherine Cortez Masto is on the right side of the issues that matter the most to working people. And she already has a record of standing up for Nevadans against big banks and special interests.
Catherine Cortez Masto was one of the first attorneys general to go after big banks during the foreclosure crisis and win relief for Nevada’s working families.
Voting is a right, and it’s a central part of our democracy. This year, with so much at stake, it is critical that we get out to vote and elect Catherine Cortez Masto who stands with working families and will not let us down.”
Richard Rosenthal, Las Vegas Resident
