During the 2011 Legislative Session, Stewart opposed the Democrats’ $1.2 billion tax plan. He fought for reforms to help balance the state budget and restore fiscal responsibility to state government.
“We held the line during the 2011 Legislative session,” Stewart said in a press release. “Not one single new tax was established. I’m seeking re-election because the fight to improve education, limit government and prioritize spending continues. We must eliminate waste and ensure our priorities are funded first through a balanced, responsible budget.”
Stewart is a lifelong resident of southern Nevada. He graduated from Las Vegas High School and Brigham Young University. After obtaining his degree and serving three years in the U.S. Army, including a year as a transportation officer in Vietnam, he returned to Nevada and became an educator for 34 years at Boulder City High School.
“I’ve raised my family here and am now watching my seven grandchildren grow up in our state,” Stewart said. “If re-elected, I will continue to fight for the issues that matter most to our families.”
