Fred Simon, MD
Nevada’s TRUE Conservative
- Voter ID
- School Choice
- Re-Engineer Healthcare
- Get tough on Crime
I am a medical doctor, a small businessman and a no-nonsense conservative Republican. If you elect me as Governor, I commit to relentlessly pursue these policies.
On Day One of a Simon Administration, I will put the legislature on notice that no bills will be signed until they put a Voter ID bill on my desk. On Day Two, I will announce that I will fund and lead a citizen’s initiative for a constitutional amendment to establish Voter ID, eliminate mass mailing of ballots and eliminate electronic voting machines. We WILL get Voter ID, either through the legislature or through an initiative. This is my top priority. There is nobody tougher or more relentless on this issue and I will get it done.
Safe Cities/Safe Communities
Nevada cities are becoming overrun with criminal gangs, drugs and the homeless. I will provide more funding to our police and law enforcement agencies for training and staffing and I will require that body cams and car cams are in use at all times to protect our officers and citizens. I will form a joint State and Federal task force to go after the drug gangs and human traffickers. To prevent the Biden adminstation from sending illegal aliens into Nevada, I will direct the Nevada State police to set up a task force and check points to prevent the trafficking of illegals into our State. I support every citizen’s right to own a firearm, I support constitutional carry and I will provide financial incentives to ammunition manufacturers and firearms manufacturers to move to Nevada.
Nevada is ranked 49th out of the 50 States in K-12 Education because of Teachers’ Unions, Progressive School Boards and Education Bureaucrats. The answer is: SCHOOL CHOICE. My goal is to provide parents a voucher of up to $10,000 per child per year for education. Parents pick the school. And if you homeschool, you keep the money as your fair compensation. And here is my plan until we get to school choice. Day one – I will fire every Governor appointee to the State Education Board, I will ban CRT, Social Emotional Learning and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from the curriculum and from any professional development training for teachers. Any school that falls below the 50% mean of academic achievement, will be taken over by the State, the administration of that school will be fired and an emergency remedial program will be put in place for students and teachers. I will require that all schools, teachers and administrators be evaluated every year by parents, by students and by my new Education Board for competency, efficiency and dedication.
More Healthcare Choice
We have a full blown healthcare crisis underway in Nevada and I am uniquely qualified as a doctor to protect you and your family from government overreach in healthcare. On Day One, I will eliminate all mask and vaccine mandates and make low cost therpeutic protocols for COVID available at all pharmacies. I will fire every Governor appointee to the Nevada Health Board and I will replace them with the leading experts in immunology and virology. Healthcare is rapidly deteriorating in Nevada because of Obamacare. Now 65% of all doctors and nurses work for hospital systems where they are subjected to cancel culture. There are no more doctors and nurses in Fernley, Yerington, Hawthorne and rural Nevada towns. Patients have to drive hundreds of miles to see a doctor or for hospital care. And hundreds doctors and nurse are quitting the profession because they understand the health risks of the Covid vaccine and they refuse to take it. I will bring Supplemental Medicare insurance to our rural counties, establish Centers of Excellence for Diabetes, Heart disease, Colon and Breast cancer, restructure how we spend our Medicaid dollars, bring low cost fee-for-service medical clinics to Nevada and establish a pilot program for treating mental illness.
