Whenever Republic Services has an item on the Clark County Commission's agenda, controversy ensues. The garbage monopoly has these 100-year agreements (I think I have the length correct), and now the county appears poised to grant the company the ability to eliminate a day of trash pickup as it ramps up its recycling program. This has sparked the ire of one of the better attorneys in Las Vegas, Todd Bice, who has made an unusually extensive records request of the county, which I have attached...
UPDATE: I have confirmed that state Sen. Kelvin Atkinson informed Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick of the threat from Brooks, who had been telling people that Kirkpatrick's "first day as speaker would be her last." (I thought he had said those words to Councilman Ricki Barlow, who denies that occurred, although Brooks had said them to others, I'm told. I deleted a previous, confusing reference to Barlow on that score. But Barlow, who said on Twitter that he had "no involvement whatsoever," called...
Welcome to The Weekly Report, where you find exclusive commentary and analysis. As always, I welcome feedback. This week: 1. What did the constitutional officers and legislative leadership raise in 2012 (FOX News to the AG?) 2. What special interests gave the most in 2012 (Five gaming companies lead the way, to the tune of an aggregate $3 million) 3. Who ponied up after the election and to whom LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR 2014 I’ve already told you what Gov. Brian Sandoval raised in 2012....
From the red part of this blue state comes word from one of the counties that the administration's gun proposals, should they become law, will not be welcome. Humboldt County Sheriff Ed Kilgore first accuses the administration of exploiting the Newtown tragedy, calling the unveiling of the package in such close proximity to the slayings "insulting and absurd." And then more (I have attached the full letter here): "The Second Amendment is truly what Americans believe is the layer of security...
It's only 655 days away. So as Election Day 2014 looms ever closer, Gov. Brian Sandoval is ramping up his bid for a second term, as I already told you. And his new campaign manager is a name not familiar to many, one Jeremy Hughes, who has updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect the new assignment beginning this month. Hughes was brought to Nevada by Mike Slanker, a key member of Team Sandoval, to run the short-lived Rick Perry for President campaign out here last year. (Remember the governor...
You can say the governor’s State of the State speech was an uninspired, unimaginative slog through an unimaginative, uninspired budget. And you might be right. But so are they all (with few exceptions), and Brian Sandoval’s was no less or no more so than any of the others. The governor loves the state, recognizes a few audience props, adores the children, wants to work with the Legislature and sees everyone living happily ever after in the great state of Nevada. Heard one…. Those who want him...
