Eureka, Nev. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) yesterday visited White Pine and Eureka Counties, where she spent her morning touring the Robinson Mine and afternoon meeting with local government officials, sheepherders and members of the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe to discuss local issues. The Senator finished her day with a tour of the historic Eureka Opera House.
“Yesterday I met with local officials and community leaders in White Pine and Eureka counties. From Amanda Hilton, the only woman to run a mine in Nevada, to Hank Volger, a sheepherder in Ely, I’m inspired by local leaders spearheading solutions to the unique challenges facing rural communities. Listening to voices of Nevadans, as well as our Native communities, guides my work as Senator, and I’ll take their voices back to Washington as I continue advocating for resources that help our communities.”
