Putative North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck has officially given up on the city she helped to dismantle. The Mayor plans to sell off most city assets, including that unneeded monument to unbridled mayoral hubris, the new city hall. (RJ)
This follows the court-ordered coup by the police union to undermine the meager threads of [...]
As the recriminations from the last special budget meeting of the North Las Vegas City Council are still flying like a flock of Nor’Town pigeons fleeing a burning aviary, this Wednesday will feature yet another special meeting on the budget at 4:30pm, Weds, April 10th, down at city hall.

Yep, it's about that time in the primary when I bring out the No Debates Dancing Chickenmen!
Originally created when Jim Gibbons was running away from Dina Titus and avoiding debates, the No Debates Chickenmanwas resurrected during the 2007 council election when Shari Buck was nowhere to be found when it came time for [...]

Well, okay. It's more of a wedge issue, but I'm guessing it feels like a wedgie to the North Las Vegas Housing Authority.
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 [...]
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 [...]
On theory suggested in a recent Sun piece as to why North Las Vegas folks, and Clark County denizens in general, avoid city council meetings, was that, well, we’re just so damned happy.
