Joe Heck vs. John Oceguera. I watch and listen to Joe Heck’s ads. I interviewed him twice on my noon show, Inside Nevada. I would estimate that I agree with less than 50% of his positions on issues affecting Nevadans. Joe is a thinking, very considerate, open-minded, hard-working and genuine person. Those traits for me trump any differences he and I have philosophically.
On the other hand, John Oceguera, whom I’ve known for at least ten years, and who has appeared on Inside Nevada at least twice, is a man without any character. He has, as they say, gamed the system in that he’s become wealthy being a fireman and doing nothing to save this county and city money from the financial abuses of state and local employees. I have no idea what John Oceguera stands for other than he stands for John Oceguera. If he doesn’t scare you, you should reexamine your viewpoint. The Heck-Oceguera contest is not even a close question for me. My choice would be Heck.
