Vote Nevada Supporters,
First, I added an Events Calendar to the Vote Nevada Blog.
If you are having an event related to the legislative session, legislation, or any other civics-related event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add your event to our calendar. I will need:
Event Date & Time
Event Location or Modality (is it in-person, hybrid, or via Zoom?)
Here are event updates:
On 1/21 Vote Nevada hosted our Legislative Strategies Zoom meeting to share strategies for a successful legislative session. You can see the meeting recording and the list of strategies here: https://vote-nevada-blog.org/recorded-advocacy-resources/
You can view other advocacy resources on the same webpage, including a review of the legislature’s website tools, the polling tool, and legislative terminology. https://vote-nevada-blog.org/recorded-advocacy-resources/
Also, on 1/21, the NAACP Las Vegas Branch 1111 welcomed a new President, First and Second Vice President, and Executive Board. President Quentin Savwoir, First Vice President A’Esha Goins, and Second Vice President Zarinah Washington are now at the helm of our Las Vegas NAACP Branch. We look forward to working with them.
Tomorrow, 1/23, the Carson City Democratic Men’s Committee is hosting Carson City Superintendent of Schools Andrew Feuling at 1:30 pm via Zoom. Mr. Feuling will be discussing Carson City school’s implementation of a “learner-centered” model of instruction. If you are interested in joining via zoom, email Rich Dunn at rich and dunn as one word and then @aol.com.
Also on 1/23, at 6 pm, Governor Lombardo will provide his State of the State Address. You can watch on any of the major news channels, or you can watch through the link provided on the Scheduled Meetings page of the legislature’s website: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Calendar/A/
The State of the State Address provides the Governor an opportunity to discuss his priorities and the state budget before the legislative session starts on February 6th. Once the state budget posts to NELIS, you can access it here under the Budgets tab here: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/82nd2023
Starting Wednesday, January 25th, through February 2nd, you can watch the state agency heads present their agency budgets to the Legislative Commission’s Budget Subcommittee. The agency budgets are part of the state budget, but these hearings provide an opportunity to hear the priorities and needs of agencies such as Health and Human Services and Corrections. You can watch these hearings from the Scheduled Meetings page: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Calendar/A/
If you miss any of these hearings, you can watch the archived recordings here: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Video/
