Letter: Water is most the important issue facing Nye County, vote Hof

I am sick of the mudslinging …We have a very serious issue in Nye County and that is WATER. I ran against James Oscarson because he is an establishment in the governor’s pocket kind of candidate. He lies!!!! He raised our taxes and swore he would not.

Now we are facing our domestic well water being taken and our wells being metered. Oscarson is the right guy to vote away your water because that is what the establishment wants. Your water!!!

This is a critical vote. Are you willing to vote for a businessman who runs legal businesses in Nevada or are you willing to give up your water because some are offended by brothels?

I take water …because it is way more important than if Dennis Hof has a legal business …If you don’t like brothels …I get it …so don’t go to one, but for God’s sake don’t give up your water because of it.

Dennis is funding his own campaign, unlike Oscarson who has been in the pocket of every special interest in Nevada and beyond. He’s taken hundreds of thousands. Wonder who wants what?

I did not endorse Dennis without several long and interesting conversations. Because I believe him to be a man of his word and a concerned Nevadan, I am endorsing him.

I gave him my endorsement.

Today I have joined his team to get him elected. I ask you to trust him. One thing for sure, he hasn’t lied to you about anything. Oscarson cannot say the same.

Please VOTE DENNIS HOF for Assembly District 36.

Ready or not lockdown season is coming to an end

On May 15, city officials declared Atwater, California a “sanctuary city.” Not for undocumented immigrants, but for businesses and churches who choose to ignore governor Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19-related shutdown orders. The city won’t be enforcing the governor’s edicts. Those edicts, mayor Paul Creighton told local businesses, are “between you and the state of California.”

STEVE SEBELIUS: Recalls are hard — and they should be

Recalls of public officials in Nevada are rarely successful, which is the way it should be, since recall proponents are asking voters to undo the results of a legitimate election.
