Whoa! Where else do you get $337,000 for messing up? Besides Goldman Sachs, I mean.
$337,000 is how much it's going to cost Nor'Town to get rid of its current City Manager Gregory Rose. (RJ) City Council will be voting on the "settlement" at the December 2nd meeting, barring postponement.
Mayor Buck is opposed [...]
Let's see. You're a political reporter who wants to write an article about the disgusting state of Nevada's campaign finance laws. So, where to go for a good example of how politicians Nevada can suck in the money without revealing who's sending it in? Why North Las Vegas, of course, home of ex-mayor Mike Montandon's [...]
Boy was I wrong when I wrote that mayor Mike Montandon was being nice to both mayoral candidates.
Turns out, he doesn’t think you should bother to vote.
So it seems when we read John L. Smith’s column in today’s RJ:
“The race is over,” exiting Mayor Michael Montandon said with consummate confidence earlier this [...]
Nor'Town Sludgecakes. Not to be taken internally!
Others have talking points, quick hits, or gleanettes. Nor’Towners are stuck with Sludge Cakes!
Ding, dong, Don England’s gone. The “CEO” of the North Las Vegas Housing Authority turned in his resignation for “masking” troubles at Casa Rosa Aparments, and because the Authority can’t [...]

The opening of Aliante Station presented the town’s face that the Mayor and City Council prefer to have in the public eye. And they had much help from the local newspapers telling us over and over just how nifty the first [...]

It's pretty hard telling the difference between Nor'Town councilmembers if you look at their voting records. Most issues they face are pretty straightforward and pretty dull. Arguing over ten feet versus five [...]
As America's worst governor enjoys about the one good day–for him–of his tortured tenure in office, we hear:
As for news that North Las Vegas Mayor Mike Montandon, a Republican, is forming an exploratory committee to run for governor in 2010, the newly smiling Gibbons seemed unfazed. (Sun)
Well. The mayor will learn what it's [...]
Term limited Mayor Mike was profiled in the Review Journal today, and we learn he's interested in a seat in Congress. Assuming he's not planning to move, that could mean he might be thinking of taking on Shelley Berkley in two years. He'd have to start raising funds, oh, about two years ago, though, because [...]
For want of a healthy foot, the top secret budget meeting of the North Las Vegas City Council would have nixed the money for staff at the new Alexander Library. Mayor Mike Montandon and Stephanie Smith were in favor of the money for staff at the library, and William Robinson and Robert Eliason were [...]
This appears on a blog for some gun, ahem, enthusiasts:
Tim, one of our loyal readers, has received a letter from Mayor Mike Montandon of North Las Vegas indicating that he is fully in favor of doing away with the unconstitutional and now illegal firearms related ordinances found in his fair city. Mayor Mike is [...]
