On May 20, Clark County commissioners decided how the medical marijuana dispensary licensing process would work: Two weeks later, in a series of hearings, they would award the golden tickets. Two days earlier, Commissioner Susan Brager, under siege by ex-state Sen. Mike Schneider in a primary, accepted four $5,000 contributions from members of a group lobbying for a license -- one from ex-Henderson Mayor Bob Groesbeck and three from companies contolled by ex-Henderson Councilman Larry Scheffler...
In what was one of the most efficient and most opaque processes in local government history, Clark County commissioners picked 18 winners of medical pot dispensaries. At times during the hearing, commissioners seemed not to know their own rules, then switched rules after a break, then tallied their votes on sheets in a series of rounds and then picked winners. With 18 winners, some very well connected, and 61 losers, some with enough money to protest in the courts, my guess is some of the...
After immigration reform protesters came to Rep. Joe Heck’s Las Vegas office Wednesday and a handful were arrested, Democrat Erin Bilbray sent out a petition to, among other things, call out the congressman’s “decision to call the police on Nevadan's (sic) exercising their First Amendment rights - Heck is not for us.” The congressman already had put out a release declaring: “Joe Heck will not be bullied into amnesty.” Amid all the high dudgeon on both sides is that this was choreographed on...
Read this: Friend -- Nevada State Assemblywoman Lucy Flores is running for Lieutenant Governor -- and she’s facing a huge deadline today. Lucy is in a tough fight against a field of Republicans that could make up the cast of “Survivor: Tea Party Edition.” One is touting an endorsement from Mitt Romney. Another, an endorsement from Newt Gingrich. One even looks like she’s trying to become the next Sharron Angle. No matter who Lucy faces, their agenda will be awful for...
Many elected officials and others are paying homage to one of Nevada's great historical figures, attorney Bob Faiss, who died after a long battle with cancer Wednesday, just before midnight at the age of 79. UPDATE: Services will be held at 3 PM on June 13 at the historic Fifth Street School in Las Vegas. UPDATE 2: I've added a beautiful piece by Control Board boss A.G. Burnett. I will be updating this as I get more encomia: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Nevada is a much better place...
This will be your place for early voting numbers, updated every morning throughout the fortnight. Final, final 11 percent. UPDATE: Rural turnout is high on GOP side -- 25 percent of total. The rurals are 20 percent of total GOP registration. Clark is at 55 percent; registration is 60 percent. Washoe is at 20 percent; registration is same. What does this mean? If you believe Sue Lowden will do better in the rurals because of Mark Hutchison's record on mining taxes, it could help her. DAY 14, IT'...
An all-out, eleventh-hour effort is underway to oust State Sen. Minority Leader Michael Roberson, whose controversial initiatives and in-your-face style have made him plenty of enemies. Roberson, who was thought to have a sizable lead over Ron Paul campaign operative Carl Bunce, is not simply rolling over in the wake of the ground and air assault. He has field master Billy Rogers in the district and a new ad (see below) to respond to Friends of Bunce, who have this on the air. The effort to...
UPDATE: The arcane process for commissioners to deliberate is at least open for view. Now attached here. ---- At 5:20 PM Tuesday, after a day-long Clark County Commission review of the rules the board will use in choosing lucky medical marijuana winners, the business license department sent an email: During Item 62 of Tuesday’s Clark County Board of Commissioners meeting, mention was made of a “Blue Book” containing the Clark County Business License Department’s Review Comments of Medical...
