During a voter education event, Steve Sanson – President of VIPI addressed the crowd and said, “I encourage all residents to visit the polls and vote intelligently for the Municipal candidate(s) whom best support your platform(s). Statistics indicate that most voters do not participate in Municipal elections due to not living in a specific jurisdiction and are unaware that elected officials do impact their lives, even if the jurisdiction is not located in your district. Consider that elected officials sit on boards, committees and vote for policy changes. Your way of life will be affected by boards and committees such as the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Fiscal Affairs Committee, the Clark County Regional Transportation Board and the Las Vegas Valley Water Committee. An elected Municipal candidate, whom you did not vote for or against today, can end up being your Governor or Mayor tomorrow. On behalf of every Clark County resident and VIPI, I implore you to vote.
