Q: What’s the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years? A: You mean other than water, power, housing, traffic and education? Honestly, I see our city’s future as remarkably promising. The biggest stumbling block to addressing all of the concerns facing us is the intransigent (told you I read the dictionary) nature of people today. Compromise and civility must be reintroduced into our daily dialogue.
Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years? A: Besides quality education, I don’t think there is anything more important than providing our residents and visitors with a safe environment to live, work and visit. Our men and women in law enforcement play an important role in that regard. I hope we will always make it a priority to provide them with the tools and resources they need.
Q: How do you decompress after a hard week? A: Long motorcycle rides to Overton.
A: I do hot yoga before or after work. It helps me deal with a lot of stress. When I’m home, I love to meditate and relax in my backyard.
The education of our youth is vital for our community. Also, having industry in our area that aligns with the workforce is extremely important.
