Nye County Corruption is a Big Problem

Taxpayers should never fund the lifestyle of politicians. Government service should never be a way to get rich.

But that’s what happens in Nye County.

We have a former Nye County Commissioner who entered elected office in 2018 earning $20,000 a year, received over $150,000 in taxpayer funds in 2020-21, and purchased a building for over $800,000 in 2022. This man held a leadership position as vice-chairman and was elected by all commissioners to the position until 2022.

Nye County is home to three elected officials who have been convicted of ethics violations in just the past few years (District Attorney, Treasurer, Commissioner), a D.A. who was arrested by local police in 2010, a county commissioner convicted of bribery in 2009, and another one who took a bribe in 2006.

This is not normal for anywhere, especially for a county so small.

We must elect experienced people who have no connection to the establishment political machine and no desire to enrich themselves from government service.
