Bryan sets final rural tour

Sen. Richard Bryan, D-Nev., will begin his final "rural tour" July 31 in Pahrump.

Bryan began holding town hall meetings in Nevada's rural communities to ask their concerns and needs after his election as governor in 1982. He continued the practice of touring during Congress's summer break following his election to the U.S. Senate.

This will be his 12th and final tour as U.S. senator for Nevada, as he will retire at the end of the year.

"I plan to keep the same pace going out of office as I did coming in," he said. "The voters who sent me to Washington deserve nothing less."

The tour will hit Boulder City after Pahrump and then move north to the Carson City area with several stops in western Nevada.

The tour reaches Douglas County Aug. 23 and Carson City Aug. 24.

He said by the time he is finished, he will have attended more than 225 town hall meetings in a dozen years.

"The purpose of my final tour will be twofold," he said. "First, I would like to personally thank as many Nevadans as possible for allowing me to represent them in the U.S. Senate over the last 12 years. Secondly, I would like to impress on my fellow Nevadans the importance of this November's election to the future of our state."
