Governor Brian Sandoval today announced the inaugural appointments to the newly created Nevada Court of Appeals. Sandoval has selected Jerome “Jerry” Tao, Michael Patrick Gibbons, and Abbi Silver, for departments one, two, and three, respectively. The selections were made following interviews with each of the nine finalists as recommended by the Nevada Commission on Judicial Selection.
WE NOW HAVE A COURT OF APPEALS IN NEVADA!!!!!!
RE: AD 37 Appointment:
Donald Graham, a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sergeant has applied for the appointment of Nevada State Assembly District 37 a seat recently vacated by former Assemblyman Wesley Duncan. The Clark County Commissioner will appoint Duncan’s replacement.
This country is in an uproar by police officers killing unarmed citizens throughout the country by protesting and demonstration.
It was brought to the attention of Veterans In Politics International that Officer Graham is siding with the Grand Jury in Staten Island New York agreeing that no charges should be filed against New York Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo for choking to death unarmed Eric Garner for selling cigarettes with four other police officers on top of Garner.
This is not the mindset we want in our Nevada Legislature contact your Clark County Commissioners and tell them no on Donald Graham (see link: http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/ ).
Las Vegas, December 4, 2014 – The Nevada Commission on Judicial Selection today named 9 finalists to fill three positions on the new Court of Appeals, Chief Justice Mark Gibbons announced.

As has been the rule since 2007, the Commission’s interviews were open to the public. A public comment period was provided to the public at the start and end of each day of interviews and before the deliberations and voting on the selection of the nominees.
In selecting the finalists, the Commission considered the applicants’ interviews along with information in comprehensive applications about education, law practice, business involvement, community involvement, and professional and personal conduct. The Commission also considered letters of reference and public statements during the interview process.
Applications of the attorneys were posted on the Supreme Court website at http://www.nevadajudiciary.us/index.php/judicialselection. The applications of the finalists will remain on the website until the Governor makes his appointments. Some personal information in the applications and letters of comment are confidential and will not be posted.

VETERANS IN POLITICS INTERNATIONAL URGES CLARK COUNTY COMMISSIONERS:
REPLACE VETERAN WITH A VETERAN
War VETERAN & Assemblyman Wesley Duncan will resign his seat in the Assembly following his re-election less than a month ago.
The Clark County Commission will appoint Duncan’s replacement. The rules say the appointee must live in District 37 and be a registered Republican. (VIPI) Veterans In Politics International urges the Clark County Commission to add another requirement to this appointee: “VETERAN”.
The VA scandal, homelessness, employment transition, healthcare, and education are some of the ongoing challenges veterans face here in Nevada every day. VIPI feel it’s a moral imperative for the 339,000 Veterans who call Nevada their home that the Clark County Commission replace a veteran with a veteran.”
Steve Sanson, VIPI president stated, “Veterans In Politics International and the others who have endorsed Wesley Duncan have a right to see the experience and priority Wesley Duncan has dedicated to veterans continue. Anything less would be a slap in the face to those of us in the Veteran community who have worked so hard to get Veterans like Wesley Duncan elected.”
Veterans In Politics International urges the Clark County Commission to replace this Veteran with a Veteran, otherwise the promise of ‘supporting veterans in Nevada’ made by all politicians will be broken.
Veterans In Politics International, Inc.:
Established in 1993: Veterans In Politics International, Inc. Mission is: To educate, organize, and awaken our veterans and their families to select, support and intelligently vote for those candidates whom would help create a better world, to protect ourselves from our own government(s) in a culture of corruption, and to be the political voice for those in other groups who do not have one.

Listen to the part that talks about 8 LVMPD officers working for the LVPPA at a tone of $1.4 million annually in salary alone, on tax payer’s dime. These cops sit on the Executive Board of the LVPPA they don’t do any police work, they don’t even wear the uniform. The LVPPA is a private entity that collects union dues. The union should pay for the staffing of their own organization from their dues. Why should tax payers flip the bill? This union is designed to protect police officers but yet tax payers are flipping the bill. In Arizona this action is ruled unconstitutional; you cannot take tax dollars to staff a private entity.
