Pledge of Allegiance
Join us for the first meeting of the Washoe Citizens Action Network(WashoeCAN).
Speakers to include:
*Jeanne Herman—Washoe County Commissioner, District 5
*Steve Wolgast--Former County Commissioner candidate and leader of Washoe Residents for Appropriate Plannng
*Tammy Holt-Still—The “Voice of the Lemmon Valley residents”
*Bill Johnson--Former County Commissioner candidate, life-long Reno resident and artist

Topic of conversation will be the current and future plans for the building and growth our county officials, and the developers, have in store for all areas of Washoe County as well as how these plans will affect our quality of life.

Tuesday, DECEMBER 11th, 6:00 PM at the Sparks Masonic Lodge, located at 2425 Pyramid Way

As noted, this the first meeting of the Washoe Citizens Action Network, we have chosen an issue which has an impact on all residents of the county.  The goal of WashoeCAN is not only to educate and inform, but more importantly for us, the concerned citizens, to engage and effect change regarding the decisions that are being made by local and regional government. 
We will do this by:

1) Regularly convening the WashoeCAN team.
2) Targeting and researching issues.
3) Determining and planning a course of action regarding targeted issues.
4) Attending local legislative/governmental meetings.
5) Speaking and going on the record at such meetings.

The time is now to get involved and act to preserve our values and quality of life here in Washoe County.  Without an active and engaged citizenry, our local government will simply continue on their path of unobstructed growth, dictates and regulations which affect us all.  All are welcome, so please join us to begin the process of a much needed citizens’ check and balance on our local elected and unelected officials.

Mike Clark - Washoe County Assessor, one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal election day.  Mike won by a mere 500 votes.  Interesting statistic:  there were 90K votes cast for County Assessor in 2014 and in 2018, there were 180K+, with the unions, casinos, builders, realtors against him.  SJR14 was not even on his radar until he learned that State Senator Julia Ratti had bragged at a social gathering last February that because Mike Clark hadn't supported her SJR14 legislation, she had found a 'qualified' candidate to run against him.  When Mike heard that from others, he started looking into SJR14 and start peeling back its many layers.

When asked why Realtors would support legislation that would basically destroy their market if property taxes would escalate upon sale (so buyers couldn't qualify and sellers could no longer sell or sell for what they wanted), Mike said it wasn't the rank and file; it was higher up the food chain. Nancy Fennell, President of Dickson Realty wrote an article of support of SJR14

Also, Senator Julia Ratti's Contributions & Expenditures Report (C&E) to the Secretary of State shows she received lots of Las Vegas and out of state money.... and even donated some of those out of state donations to other campaigns, helping other Dems up and down the state get elected.  This is report #3 of 4 in 2018. Scroll down to see the contributions. You can look at the other reports as well (at the top, but clicking on the underlined report).

If you want to follow other politicians' donations and expenses, click here, type in the politician's name and up will pop the list of reports.

Vin Keenan - only about 10 days left before Congress recesses for the session. Please call your legislators, either locally or in DC, and urge them to fund the border wall in the Budget (or Continuing Resolution/CR) due Dec. 7.

Contact Information:
Congressman Mark Amodei
Phone: Reno (775) 686-5760 – Washington DC (202) 225-6155

Senator Dean Heller
Phone: Reno 775-686-5770 – Washington DC 202-224-6244

President Trump
Phone: Comments: 202-456-1111 - Switchboard: 202-456-1414

Sample Statement:
I support both the Border Security and Building the Wall.  Please vote to provide enough funding to build the wall and for total border security!  And while you're at it, let's get Yucca Mtn funded as well.

Background Information:
There are a few weeks before the Democrats get control of the House of Representatives the one thing, they will not do is building a wall to limit Illegal Immigration. The end game is Citizenship to create more voters from more socialistic countries where the central government is in control.

Valerie White - suggested this website, which I don't like so much as it goes through Senate Conservatives and asks for a donation at the end. You don't have to make a donation, but I don't like even being asked and I'd rather have my call go directly to the legislator.

Lynn Chapman - has an interesting Education Reporter, with articles such as "An Unreliable College Botches Free Speech", "The Danger of Online (Or Any) Pre-Kindergarten Assessment" and "The Doctor/Music Connection and the Terrible Disregard for Music in Public Schools."

Lynn also has Freedom Calendars for sale - $5 (or less in quantities of 3 or more), which helps fund Janine Hansen and Lynn in Carson City during the Legislative Session.

For copies of this publication or Freedom Calendars, contact Lynn,

Sue Kozak - Why is it calls for jury duty are declined with the reason "I'm not a legal citizen" and therefore cannot serve on a jury?  Why are illegals being allowed to vote (jury pools are pulled from registered voters)?  When the excuse for not serving on a jury comes back with "I'm illegal," can't that be reported to the Sec'y of State to remove them from the voter rolls?

Homeless/On the Street Folks - a long discussion about this topic ensued.  Valerie White, who has some experience with the issue says only about 10% on the street want to be helped and to get back into society. The other 90% are either mentally ill or addicted to drugs. Reno's program to offer them shelter and a meal is only enabling them. There is no drug-testing or requirement to get off drugs or help them find a place to live or work.

The problem is perpetuated with some of the low-end jobs being taken by illegal immigrants.
Gary Duarte brought up the "immigration gumballs" video which demonstrates all too clearly the big picture of immigration and poverty.

Gary also wanted us to include in the call to Heller, Amodei and the White House our urging to continue the study on Yucca Mtn. The study is only the next step in a long process to get Yucca opened. It just completes the safety review needed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to move forward. So far, it's been just stale-mated.

Ken Koeppe - there are 7 states in which the policy of 'autonomy' exists.  If a person on the streets insists he doesn't want to be taken in or helped, we must leave him alone.  Valerie White suggests that we need to hit them where it hurts - take away their grocery carts (which really is stolen property) and if the business community would enforce that, we might get somewhere.

Next Meeting - Wednesday, December 12, 2018, same time, same place.
