Two documents for you to peruse, folks: One is an internal Metro to block captains and call to action for businesses to show up Tuesday in the Clark County Commission chambers to promote the "More Cops" initiative. The other is a report on air support flights after the infamous Guns N Roses fiasco. Enjoy.
In less than four months, the coalition to defeat the margin tax raised $700,000. The money is almost evenly divided among four groups: Nevada Resort Association, Retailers Association of Nevada, Nevada Mining Association and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. The Nevada Taxpayers Association kicked in $4,000, records show. So who funded these groups in 2013? ►NRA: Las Vegas Sands ($30,000), MGM Resorts ($34,000), Boyd ($25,500), Station ($25,500) and Caesars ($14,000) led the way. The report...
The event took place on Norman Rockwell Lane but the tableau would have been unrecognizable for the painter: An African-American tea partier with a predominantly Hispanic staff announcing at a Mexican restaurant with a rural cowboy at his side in a place called Las Vegas. Rockwell’s portraits of Americana conjured no one like Niger Innis, whose picture would be more at home in The American Spectator than the Saturday Evening Post. But there he was in far northwest Las Vegas on Wednesday on a...
Niger Innis, the former national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, officially declared for Congress today against Rep. Steven Horsford. And a FEC complaint was filed against him by a concerned citizen, who also happened to be the plaintiff in the eminent domain looniness in North Las Vegas. I find FEC complaints filed to be timed with someone's announcement like annoying, regularly recurring rashes: They are irritating, but they must be dealt with. Gregory Smith filed the complaint...
Speaker John Boehner is coming to raise money for Rep. Joe Heck on Friday in Las Vegas. He will have a welcoming committee:
As the teachers union prepares for a Sisyphean fight to pass a new tax for education, the rest of organized labor is poised to roll the boulder back over them. Sources confirm that the AFL-CIO, especially the 18 building trades affiliates, have decided not to support the tax it once enthusiastically backed. And Gail Tuzzolo, the longtime right-hand woman of AFL-CIO boss Danny Thompson, has become a paid consultant to the coalition trying to defeat The Education Initiative. “It’s up in the air...
News that Gov. Brian Sandoval raised $3 million in six months not only cements his re-election but is an unprecedented number for an off-year in Nevada. And don't forget: The governor raised about $1.3 million in the first two years of his tenure (he spent about half of that), so he's at $4.3 million raised. (I'm told he has about $3.1 million on hand, which is about $3.1 million more than anyone who will run against him.) In a comparable filing in 2010, candidate Sandoval raised $900,000. It's...
