The Veterans In Politics International has/will video record their interviews for the primary and general election for all the candidates that have the fortitude to be interviewed by our group.
The candidates that attended are willing to meet the challenge of an interview in a bipartisan effort to reach out to the veteran community and the community as a whole.
We hope that these interviews will be helpful in the Primary and General Election by placing people in office that are knowledgeable, ethical, experienced, write laws that will benefit all Nevadans, able to put childish differences aside, do what’s best for Nevadans, put others before themselves, take the oath of office seriously, apply the true meaning of “public servant”, have a vision for resolving the problems that are facing our community, and most importantly not to be influenced by outside pressure that are self-serving.
Interview panel members are screened volunteers who are strictly prohibited from receiving any consideration or advice from prospective political candidates seeking an endorsement from VIPI or their opponents. Each panel member signed a “Confidentiality Agreement” and at no time can they disclose any discussions that took place during the time of voting.
