Burke Andersson will
Clean Up Nevada
Nevada deserves a candidate that understands that the 4th Industrial Revolution is coming. Nevada is projected to be the number one state affected by job loss due to automation.
You may have noticed that at the MGM property they already have robot bartenders. Lyft is giving people the option of a self-driving vehicle on the Las Vegas strip. Call center jobs are being replaced with a computer that sounds like a person.
Burke Andersson is going to bring the solutions to the Nevada legislature, so we can prepare now for the future that is already here.
Dear fellow Nevadans,
These are increasingly troubling times in our state and our country. People are angry, confused, and in despair. Their anger is justified. For far too long, the long shadow of racism has worked its way into every avenue of American life. Racism is alive and well, and politicians have not taken the bold steps to remedy this stain. I am only one candidate in one district here in Nevada, but I feel I must take a stand now for Nevadans, and for our Black and Brown communities.
I will strongly commit to holding police accountable for their actions. If elected, I will introduce and/or support legislation that will remove Qualified Immunity from police officers so that victims can sue police officers. In addition, I will also introduce legislation that will strip police officers convicted of police brutality of their pensions, 401ks, and administrative leave pay. Their pay belongs to the victims. The time for words is long past. It is time for action.
Furthermore, I believe that these protests are as much about economic inequality as it is about police brutality.
- 1 out of every 1000 Black men can expect to be killed by the police (source: https://www.pnas.org/content/116/34/16793).
- The average black family household only has $17,000 in net worth compared to the $171,000 for the average white family.
- Black women are 2 to 6 times more likely to die from complications of pregnancy than white women depending on where they live (source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1595019/).
- Covid-19 has disproportionally affected black lives as one third of the deaths due to the coronavirus has been black. (https://apnews.com/8a3430dd37e7c44290c7621f5af96d6b).
These are the numbers that define race in America today. So I championing Martin Luther King’s last policy for which he was fighting before he was assassinated: a Guaranteed Basic Income for all Americans (source: https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/08/martin-luther-kings-economic-dream-a-guaranteed-income-for-all-americans/279147/). These are only the first steps we must take to fix American’s racial disparity, but bold actions need to be taken now. The longer we wait, the more lives will be lost.

Every Donation Counts
Our campaign needs 30,000 mailers, so we can hit the pavement running. We have a goal to raise $2,000 minimum, which will also pay for this website, professional photography, and additional advertising.
If Burke had a dollar for each view on his Youtube channel, he would have over $100,000 to put towards getting UBI for Nevada so we can create an example for the rest of the United States.
