Francey Dennis n/r NP Planned Parenthood annually updates and distributes

♦ Robert Cashell I Pro NP returned the 2010 questionnaire. We encourage
Mathias Cone n/r NP supporters to directly contact candidates from these
Chad Dehne n/r NP races to determine stance on pro-choice issues.
Duane Dunstone n/r NP
In some cases in which two candidates are rated pro-
Reno City Council, Ward 2 choice, endorsement preference is given to the incumbent
Brandi Anderson Pro NP
who has demonstrated support for Planned Parenthood‘s
Anthony Gonzalez n/r NP
Donna Graves Pro NP issues while in office or may to individuals who have
♦ Sharon Zadra I Pro NP
demonstrated a history of support for Planned Parenthood
or our issues. Since we strive for all candidates to be pro-
Reno City Council, Ward 4 choice, sometimes when there are two or more pro-choice
Dwight Dortch I n/r NP candidates in a race, we don’t take a position. Some pro-
Edward Hawkins Leans Pro NP choice candidates are not endorsed because of
unfamiliarity with the candidate, their viability or other
criteria impacting their PP endorsement.

Some incumbents are known to be supportive, but did not


return this year’s 2010 questionnaire. For this reason,
some incumbents weren’t given a rating.
