Crossing Nevada as Endorsements Continue Steady
From one end of the state to another, Marsy’s Law team members are crossing Nevada to spread the word about the victims’ rights measure and meet new supporters – and, with that, has come a steady stream of endorsements.
In fact, new endorsements in September include a number of civic leaders:
- Las Vegas City Council members Bob Coffin and Michele Fiore
- Henderson City Council members John Marz and Dan Shaw
- Carlin Police Chief Dennis Fobes
- Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea
- Churchill County Sheriff Ben Trotter
- Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Allen
- West Wendover Mayor Daniel Corona, a fourth-generation Nevadan
All these community leaders understand the importance of standing tall for victims of crime. We all deserve equal rights and a voice if we ever face the system as a victim. The continued flow of new endorsements by civic leaders in small towns and larger metro areas just shows the strength and need for Marsy’s Law for Nevada.
Our team has also been meeting with groups to answer questions and meet supporters, including visits to the Nevada Coalition to END Domestic and Sexual Violence annual conference, gatherings marking Nevada’s Constitution Day, as well as media interviews including KENO/ESPN 1460 AM.
We thank the organizations allowing Marsy’s Law to share information, and we appreciate all the civic leaders showing their support and joining citizens across Nevada to endorse this measure. The ballot question is a year away, but there is no reason to delay our resolve on the rights that victims should have in Nevada.
We urge everyone to sign the petition for Marsy’s Law today, share the information from our website and Facebook with friends and colleagues, invite us to upcoming group or civic events, and help spread the word.
Marsy’s Law for Nevada matters, because every good citizen who becomes a victim matters.
