Vote Nevada Supporters,
As we send prayers to our friends in Tahoe, Carson City, and Douglas County, many public lands managers are looking for new models for addressing fire in the west. Native American tribes have very different relationships with fire, which is leading to a greater appreciation of indigenous science. https://www.npr.org/2020/08/24/899422710/to-manage-wildfire-california-looks-to-what-tribes-have-known-all-along
Our Inclusive Economic Development Through Entrepreneurship meeting on 8/28 was well attended and quite lively. You can watch the recording here: https://vote-nevada-blog.org/vote-nevada-community-meeting-recordings/
We now have a follow-up meeting scheduled with Nevada Grow Counselor Michelle Chan and her partner who is a mental health professional. RSVP for Nevada Grow: A Mindful Approach to Small Business and Nonprofit Development, September 15th, 6:30 to 8 pm, via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIpce2upzIjHNQ-C19Or9kuqkz0TzRsaxHm
Our next meeting on nonpartisans running for office is on September 18th, 9-10:30 am, via Zoom. We will discuss the various roles associated with a campaign, such as a campaign manager, communications manager, and outreach volunteers. Included is a discussion on running statutory ballot questions. A statutory ballot question puts a bill into the next legislative session as a priority. If the legislature does not act on the bill it goes on the ballot in the next election for voters to decide its fate. This keeps legislative leadership from being able to kill a bill outright. You can RSVP here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUrceivqjsjEtPVcmw1hQNzQJvhtL_ZoAwq
No word yet on the redistricting special session.
Thanks for being Nevadans with me,
