U.S. Senator Richard Bryan stated, “Nevada’s long-term growth is inextricably linked to our ability to foster and support strong political and civic institutions. The Guinn Center honors Governor Guinn’s legacy of bipartisanship and a commitment to higher education. It has become an important player in our civic landscape by providing independent research and informing public discourse in a way that recognizes the importance of civility.

”Ms. Dema Guinn wrote, “Kenny always said, ‘education is not on my agenda, it is my agenda.’  He would be so proud of the Guinn Center and the excellent, fair-minded policy work they are doing for education as well as the many other very important topics facing our fellow Nevadans.”

Former Chief of Staff to Governor Guinn, Marybel Batjer stated, “Kenny Guinn ran for Governor because he cared deeply about the health and welfare of every Nevadan.  It was always the policy that drove his desire for good outcomes, never the politics.  The Guinn Center is bringing well-researched, thoughtful, and pragmatic approaches to the public policy discourse in Nevada—a fine legacy for a great Nevadan.”

Professor Nancy Rapoport, UNLV Distinguished Professor and the Garman Turner Gordon Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law, said, “What our state needs is a non-partisan, unbiased, intelligent, and dedicated think tank that has the best interests of the state at heart and is willing to keep an open mind while it explores current issues. The Guinn Center is such a think tank. Its reports are top-notch and a go-to resource. It’s a model for how willing and engaged minds can help to solve thorny problems.”
