Few things are more scary than out-of-control development in Washoe. The latest is the proposed change to zoning in the Zolezzi/Lenz area to allow higher density housing. There is a neighborhood meeting scheduled for Thursday, 11/2, at 6PM at the Lenz elementary school. Attend to fight the increased housing density in our area. Zolezzi_School.
We have begun to meet with experienced principals to discuss our strategy going forward. The priority is to prepare for the 2018 election. Our present challenge is to find a candidate with high ethical standards who could defeat our Commissioner; Robert Lucey. Given the political demographic, we’re most likely to win with a Republican candidate who will need to defeat Lucey in the primary. But, given the national political climate, we may see a higher than normal turnout by the Democrats.
I was pleased to see the Reno Gazette Journal publish my One View piece yesterday. I was disappointed that the statements the commissioners made to me were edited out. The commissioners themselves really made my argument. The editor told me that they did not want to publish them since they did not corroborate them. Links below are for both the published (edited) version and for the submitted (original) version.

I’ve seen no activity on the Ascente property in the last few weeks. The tracked drill is still sitting on its transport truck at the end of Fawn Lane.
