LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Setting the record straight

Mr. Lacy stated the Nye County well is on Pahrump Fairgrounds property, which is not correct. It is on a piece of land next to the fairgrounds land and has little or no water rights to it. In 2007 the Pahrump Town Board purchased over a million dollars in water rights for the fairgrounds property when I was on the town board.

Mr. Lacy makes it sound like this is only a county-raceway project. Again this is not correct. It is my understanding the deal is between the Spring Mountain Raceway, the county and the town.

Mr. Lacy needs to remember the town owns the fairgrounds property, not the county, and until the Supreme Court rules on the legitimacy of the ballot issue for making the Pahrump Town Board an “advisory” board later this year, the Town of Pahrump will continue to own the property, yet Mr. Lacy acts like it is already the county’s property.

Mr. Lacy needs to learn to be a team player and remember that there is no “I” in the word team.

Another possible lesson to be learned from the past

Letter to the Editor

Shifting political realities and the fallout from the last election cycle have sadly moved some policymakers to restrict access to the ballot for certain communities. We’ve seen it right here in Nevada, as a restrictive voter ID bill was introduced earlier this session. While the bill was dead on arrival, it is a troubling reminder that some legislators would rather restrict access to the ballot than work to win over these communities ahead of the next election.
