1) Some of you long-time attendees might remember Larry and Elsie Newman, who actually started the talk group 15 years ago with 6 people in the Del Webb community, long before it was Conservative Talk Lunch. Elsie Newman recently passed away and her funeral arrangements are as follows:

Monday, May 6, 12:00 noon, at Walton’s Funerals & Cremations, 875 W. 2nd St. in Reno. That will be followed by a brief gravesite prayer at Mountain View Cemetery at 435 Stoker.

2) Bev Stenehjem, candidate for School Board E (Somersett, Del Webb, Verdi, Kings Row, UNR) is needing help to pass out flyers to parents when kids are picked up at school and also to hold her big signs on street corners and will pay $40 for perhaps an hour of work. Please contact Bev directly, 408-705-6537.

3) Assemblywoman Alexis Hansen (Assembly Dist 32) is seeking someone in Somersett to open their home or backyard for a “Candidate Connection” in your neighborhood to answer constituent questions and see what issues are important to the voters. Very little needs to be done. You pick the date and time, invite your social network, collect RSVPs and send them reminders. Alexis and her team will create a flyer and invite other voters in the neighborhood. Call Jon Staab, 775-777-4067. [See Attachment]

4) “Let My People Go” video by Professor David Clements / I apologize for the bad link last time.


5) From Jeff Church:  It’s campaign season and early voting in May. A couple attachments for your reading pleasure; First the Spring edition of the Washoe Schools Examiner and then a flyer of upcoming events. We hope to have a few more events and hope those will be open to all candidates. One thing that I note is that there are a lot of concerned citizens that filed to run across the board.

From the official Washoe Registrar website:

I also pass on that there are dozens of voluntary committee openings at the State, local and school board levels so opportunities for you to get involved and serve. Many WCSD openings will occur around June 2024.

6) Read Jeff Church‘s great article in the RGJ from Monday, 4/22:

7) Good News from Breitbart:   Wokeness took over Hollywood, and the downfall of movieland began. Hollywood’s misfortune continued this week with the failure of one of the most prolific studios that funded leftist-leaning productions.

“Left-wing billionaire Jeff Skoll’s woke film studio Participant is reportedly shutting down operations and eliminating most of its staff — the latest victim of Hollywood’s sharp downturn that has seen a bloodbath of layoffs and budget cuts.

Participant, founded in 2004, often financed projects with social justice and globalist themes, including former Vice President Al Gore’s climate change documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” and its sequel. Other titles include the Obama’s Netflix documentary “American Factory” and the Ruth Bader Ginsburg doc “RBG”.

Eugene Hoover – candidate for County Commission District 1 – has often represented small business at the Legislature. He’s the Conservative in the race. Several mismanagement decisions on the part of the Commission doing things they should not be doing. We used to have paper ballots; now we have machines. Chairman Alexis Hill’s actions are disgraceful and she needs to be removed. Eugene will build a coalition and get back on track. He believes better management will turn our County red again. Imagine a majority of the Commission working for the people and to better our County – build roads, pave streets instead of buying sculptures. The billion-dollar budget is way out of control. They just doubled the hook-up sewer fees for new builds. The Commission chose to take the $$ from the sewer fund and spend it on other projects and now the sewer system has a deficit.  Eugene has been endorsed by Commissioner Mike Clark.


Alicia Woo – candidate for School Board District G (At-Large) – District G includes Galena, Caughlin Ranch, Incline Village, Golden Valley, Stead, Lemmon Valley, all of west Reno. She was a HS teacher with WCSD for 17 years. Trustees are elected by the people and should listen to the people. There are discipline problems and she left teaching because her ability to do her job was compromised. Alicia will support policies that will enable the District to find and retain great teachers. Vote on June 11!

Christine “Chris” Garvey – candidate for Sparks City Council, Ward 1 (Old Historic Sparks) – the lone Conservative in her race. Her platform includes keeping our neighborhoods and public areas safe, supporting seniors, revitalizing small business centers, solving traffic problems and transparency and efficiency in government. There is a Republican minority in her district. She could use help walking the district or standing on street corners with Chris’ signs.  The homeless budget has been increased to $38M, whereas the senior budget stays the same at $7M (formerly it was $11M). Learn more about Chris at


Tracey Hilton Thomas – candidate Washoe County Commission 4 – Yesterday the Commission had to acknowledge the list of locations of early voting, which revealed 6600 Wingfield Pkwy (Red Hawk CC), which has provided her opponent, incumbent Clara Andriola, with a free office space and has given her a space for fundraising – clearly a preference for one candidate over another. Red Hawk has an “interest” in the outcome of this election and should not be a polling place. The Commission decided at yesterday’s meeting that it was too late to change that polling location. Tracey cited Andriola’s failure to support Conservative positions. She has raised $196K and $150K of that is from developers and builders and only $4K from District 4 residents.


Donald Fossum – speaking on behalf of Dr. Jeff Gunter (US Senate) and Dr. Fred Simon (US Congress).

Dr. Jeff Gunter – he’s been an office-holder under Trump (ambassador to Iceland). He’s been raising $$$ and putting it into ads. He is a dedicated physician (skin cancer Dr), putting people first. He is running for US Senate and will fight to protect individual liberties and freedoms, secure the border and for a strong economy.

Dr. Fred Simon – running for US Congress, District 2. Mark Amodei’s incumbency has hurt us by creating a financial crisis for Americans. He voted with Kevin McCarthy to extend the debt ceiling for 2 yrs with no limit, fully funding the Biden agenda of open borders, Ukrainian support, corrupt FBI and DOJ.  We need to close the borders.


Victoria Meyer – candidate for School Board D. She is running because schools are broken with pornographic books in the libraries (which the Board just voted to leave those books in place). Any school’s primary goal is to produce students who can function in society and have a good education (Civics, Constitution, History) and be able to carry this country forward. In 2015, the School Board passed Regulation 5161 (no parental knowledge of transgender desires in students). Victoria will put the 7-page regulation 5161 on her website for your perusal. Need help from everyone you know to help turn these seats over. More than 80% of the kids in WCSD, by the District’s own numbers, are performing 1 to 3 grades below their enrolled grade. Who can learn in an environment of violence, drugs, absenteeism and identity politics.


Trista Gomez – running for County Commission 4 – Realtor, mother of kids in schools and also older adult kids. Her school-age children do a hybrid curriculum with tangible subjects at WCSD and other courses at accredited private schools where they can get credit to help them graduate. Their ACT scores are higher than national averages. She is a 4th generation Nevadan, but has lived in San Francisco and Portland, so she looks at outcome comparisons. Use the words the liberals use:  “disenfranchise”, “marginalize”, “bullied”. She is focused on costs, ineffectively distributed… the process is getting in the way. Pronouns – we need to say that “being called a pronoun you don’t “identify with” because it’s against our religion and these pronouns are disenfranchising us.” Her site is being built.


Gary Schmidt – candidate for Storey County Commission (Virginia City). At State Legislature, he’s been working on a proposal to have anything on the Commission agenda when just one Commissioner asks for it to be agendized. Currently it has to be 2 Commissioners and Jeanne Herman can’t get anything on the agenda. Another proposal he is working on pertaining to violations of Open Meeting Law (OML), there will be $1K-$5 fine per commissioner per violation, escalating for more than 1 violation. And if it’s an issue the Commission votes for, the Commission will be likewise fined.


Schayden Gorai – Turning Point Action – brief update. Coalitions with churches are done purposefully to hold forums for candidates because Christians don’t vote. We’re trying to get people out to vote. Just a few days ago, 100 Faith Coalition members have joined forces to Get Out The Vote (GOTV). 16.4% of Republicans in this County are low propensity voters. TPAction is the only organization in this country, on a nationwide basis, working on an organized ballot harvesting program. Establish a connection with your neighbors, build a relationship and help them know they must vote. TPAction has an app that will help you identify your neighbors, scripts to help you talk to them.


Nicholas St Jon – this election will be won in neighborhoods. Get candidates trained on knowing your neighborhood. His app will help you do just that with who voted, who didn’t and other stats. Get churches to have a table where we can register voters, talk to voters. To get statistics on your neighborhood, go to  To get the app, go to

At the School Board meeting, all 7 Trustees were given a contract for their acceptance, which puts them under commercial law. Then they can be found in violation and can be found guilty on breach of contract. 1) once violated, go after their bond; 2) file with the Ethics Committee; 3) notices of liability; 4) lien on their personal property.

Next Meeting – Wednesday, May 8, same time, same place.
