CANDIDATE QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES

 

Please share briefly what inspired you to run for this office and why you feel you’re qualified for the position.

 

Having served the public for almost 40 years; as a teacher, a Metro Officer, an elected university regent and Las Vegas city councilman, I am passionate about serving the public, and my experience has prepared me for the responsibilities that come with the position of County Commissioner. I have served the people of Southern Nevada with a logical approach to community issues that have earned me respect and support from my constituents.

How do you plan to address growth in the County? What is your opinion on infill vs. sprawl development, infrastructure needs and transportation issues?

 

I support responsible growth. By that I mean considering a vast array of variables when it come to deciding how to grow Clark County. I am open to the input from stakeholders in the community as we address the best way to handle the inevitable growth we will see in the future.

 

What are your plans for addressing the issue of affordable housing?

 

My experience has taught me that the best way to address important issues like affordable housing is to first get a handle on the supply and demand for affordable housing and who the target market is and how best to meet their needs. Then we have to address the supply side, working closely with housing developers to ensure they build the right product.

 

How would you improve the County’s resources and assistance for people experiencing homelessness?

 

As a Las Vegas City Councilman, I have been educated on the homeless situation in our community as the City has worked to serve the homeless. Make no mistake, it is complicated, and one solution does not fit all. Resources for the homeless is always an issue. We can't always look to tax payer funding. I will seek to build partnerships with the not-for-profits serving the homeless looking for ways to combine resources and not simply serve the homeless, but work to end homelessness for those who can make that journey.

 

How would you deal with the lack of mental health funding in this State at the County level?

 

This too is a complex issue with many moving parts, and funding is just one of them. Our state ranks almost last in our ability to service those in need of mental health care. We don't have enough professional practitioners, we don't have services such as drop-in care or long-term care, and we don't have the support of employers and other key stakeholders. I will need the help from those in the mental health care field to help me find a way to improve this much needed service. I am open to conversations.

 

Should public transportation options be expanded? If so, how would you pay for expansion of public transportation options?

 

The RTC recently embarked on public outreach on expanded and alternative public transportation. I would like to be updated on those outcomes and and the costs associated so I can take a closer look at this issue.

 

In 2015, the Nevada Legislature preempted all local governments’ ability to regulate firearms. Should local governments have the ability to regulate firearms? If so, what type of laws would you like to see enacted at a county level to reduce gun violence?

 

 

As a retired police officer, I have knowledge of guns and gun usage. The Nevada Legislature was correct in preempting local regulation of fire arms for the simple fact that our local jurisdictions are separated in most cases by a roadway or publicly unknown boundary line. Local regulation would result in confusion and nonconformity of gun laws.

 

 

Do you support fair wages and working conditions for public sector employees?

 

Yes.
