Candidate: Give donations to those who need it
At this time with so many having so little due to the
pandemic’s impact on the economy, I have decided against purchasing campaign
If you are inclined to donate to my campaign, I ask that
you, instead, donate to the Food Pantry, Food for Thought, FISH – or possibly
help a family by providing them a card for Smith’s, Save Mart, Raley’s, Walmart
or Grocery Outlet.
This is a personal decision for me based on nothing other
than my concern for those who are struggling to find a way to make ends meet,
feed their kids, and remain in their homes.
I say this in no way to disparage any other candidate. I
respect them and whatever choices they make in how to conduct their campaigns.
I will be doing what I can in “campaigning” for the office of mayor, but will
not be purchasing/displaying large fence signs, door magnets, etc., as I do not
feel now is the time to put that kind of money into this effort.
Not in temples made with hands
Christian: n. One who believes in and follows the teachings
of Christ Jesus.
Observing together Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Resurrection
of the son of God were taken from us by governments worldwide with spurious
coronavirus claims of, “It’s in your best interests.”
Oh? How is obedience to the secular state in the best
interests of Christians?
When King Nebuchadnezzar ordered obeisance to a government
image (flag?) he had made, it was four God-fearing men who refused. Hananiah,
Mishael and Azariah “…were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace,”
but were soon seen walking loose and unharmed in the midst of the fire with a
fourth “… like the son of God.”
For reproving the king (government) of pride and idolatry,
Daniel was cast into the den of lions. The next day, Nebuchadnezzar went to the
lions den and cried out, “O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God whom
thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?” Daniel replied,
“My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have
not hurt me.”
Do our church leaders have such faith? I think not. They
chose to fear government edicts denying assemblies to Christians praising and
worshiping our savior for his having risen from the dead for us. They closed us
out of our churches!
Listen up, preachers: “For God hath not given us the spirit
of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Support Bagwell for mayor
I am writing this letter in support of Lori Bagwell for Carson
City mayor, an active, longtime resident.
This campaign season is different due to COVID-19.
Candidates will not have the usual campaign trail activities;
therefore, candidates must run on their record of success, qualifications,
experience, and reputation.
My friend, Lori, excels in all areas required to be our Carson
Lori’s academic qualifications, experience as a budget analyst for
the state, deputy director for a state agency, small business owner, and
success as a city supervisor make her a highly-qualified candidate.
We as a community are going through a challenging time; our
citizens need the comfort and security of a leader who understands our city.
Lori is prepared to lead on day one, implementing any necessary
Her transparency and availability to her constituents throughout
her public career make her the best candidate for mayor.
Please vote for Lori.

Saving money on education
School board meeting, March 12.
I’m surprised at the number of people at the meeting.
Of course, it is a concern about the budget. There must be
70 or more people in the picture of the room meeting. This was after the
governor said to limit gathering to no more than 10.
One way the cost of education could be cut is to eliminate
the unnecessary bus trips to Las Vegas and Henderson.
Every time we go through Tonopah (about once a month) there
are two or three luxury buses with middle or high school students going to Las
Vegas or coming from Reno, Carson to Las Vegas.
These students are missing three days of school plus all of
the expense of motels, food, supervisors and bus drivers.
Surely, there are enough schools in Northern Nevada to
compete in competitions.
This is a waste of taxpayers’ money.
Sisolak doesn’t care about citizens
I couldn’t believe that Gov. Sisolak banned doctors from
prescribing a proven safe, FDA-approved drug to patients except in a
hospital. But he did.
This drug been used with great success around the world.
What hypocrisy! When it comes to the decision to kill an
unborn baby, he believes that you can’t interfere with the doctor-patient
relationship. When it comes to
prescribing a potential life-saving drug, he has no problem interfering.
I can think of only two reasons he would do this: The president
suggested it and/or he wants an excuse to prolong the Nevada shut down.
It is obvious that Sisolak cares more for politics and power
than he cares about the lives of Nevada citizens.
