Dear Residents,

Wow, what a busy first few weeks this office has had.  First and foremost I must say how very excited I am to represent the residents of Commission District B. This is a great area filled with great people and I am honored to have this opportunity to be your voice on the County Commission.

I will be sending out a newsletter around the middle of each month to bring you news about what’s been going on and what’s coming soon. If there is anything that you think would be useful to include in the newsletter, please email it to me at ccdistb@clarkcountynv.gov before the first of the month. You may also email me at that address with any questions or concerns my office might be able to help with, or, if you’d rather call you can usually reach me at my office at (702) 455-3504 or on my cell phone at (702) 767-1315.

Since being sworn in earlier this month, my staff and I have visited with residents and elected officials in Moapa Valley, Mesquite and North Las Vegas, and attended Town Advisory Board meetings in Moapa and Sunrise Manor. We will be visiting more neighborhoods real soon to hear about the issues that are important to you. If you would like to schedule a visit, please let me or my staff know. We have our Lunch and Learn series, at which we host a lunch and discussion in your community, and our Dessert and Discussion for those who would rather have us visit later in the day. (We held our first Lunch and Learn in Moapa Valley just after Labor Day and we had a great turnout.)

Make no mistake, District B is a very diverse district with a wide range of needs. But I know that we can all benefit if we work together to bring the necessary resources to our communities. I have asked other leaders in the district - from school board members to mayors to community members - to work with me to benefit the residents.  I am sure that you will see some new things happening real soon.

Thank you,
Marilyn

Special Dates:

September 26
A FREE housing fair will take place at the Silver Mesa Recreation Center, 4025 Allen Lane, 89032, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The fair is sponsored by Home Again: Nevada Homeowner Relief Program which is a no-cost public service of the Office of the Nevada Attorney General and the Financial Guidance Center. The event is for interested and current homeowners.  A number of nonprofit HUD-approved agencies and lenders will be available to discuss down payment assistance programs.  These agencies can provide guidance regarding loan modification, foreclosure prevention options and the resources available to homeowners.  Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) 2.0 approved lenders will also be available to speak with current homeowners eligible for the program. Even if a homeowner has applied in the past for the HARP program, this new version should be considered, as program requirements have changed. Nonprofit legal service providers will be in attendance to offer direction and resources. Representatives will be available to answer any housing-related questions from the public. Drawings for door prizes will held throughout the event. For more information, please contact the Home Again office at (702) 457-4638 or visit the website.
