Washington, D.C.- Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement on the Chinese New Year:
“I wish everyone in Nevada and across the nation celebrating the Chinese New Year a year of health, peace, and joy. This is the year of the snake, or Shé, which symbolizes steady progress and focus. These are themes which we can all strive towards.
Nevada’s Chinese-American community plays an integral role in helping our state’s culture and economy flourish. As one of Nevada’s fastest growing communities, Chinese-American small business owners are at the forefront of driving Nevada’s long-term economic success.
In this New Year, I will continue to personally work to secure long-term economic prosperity for all Nevadans and Americans. I am encouraged by the steady pace of progress in our economy and hope that together we can continue to achieve much more. As is traditionally said on this holiday- May your happiness be without limit.”
