I love Las Vegas, but like any city we have challenges. I believe we need to address some of the health care issues we face as a city.

The biggest challenge facing the future of Las Vegas is the funding of education and mental health services. The increasing demand for these services, with the lack of appropriate funding, is a mounting crisis that threatens the future growth and vitality of this community.
Our biggest challenge is responding to the growth that has ensued and the demands it places on each of our systems, particularly the education, health care, mental health and workforce development systems.
