I am proud to announce the endorsement of Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers (NAPSO); Mesquite Police Officers' Association (MPOA); and Law Enforcement Loyalty PAC (LEL PAC), and Protect Our Police PAC. Thank you for your support!
Mesquite, Nevada has been rated one of the "Safest Cities in Nevada" based on crime rate per 1,000 and law enforcement per 1,000 for several years now. In 2019, we slipped to #2, according to a study by Alarms.org.
While the national media is highlighting some municipalities considering defunding police departments, I am of the opposite opinion. We should be funding at a higher rate to pay for more training and tools to keep situations that result in bad outcomes from happening!
As a City Councilman, I will work to not only maintain our reputation, but to improve it by giving Mesquite Fire Rescue and Mesquite Police Department the personnel, training, and equipment they need to succeed and continue keep our city safe.
