Washoe County Poll workers needed. We must have an army of Republican Poll Workers to count votes, check IDs and verify signatures. Apply online:


The Great Summer Walk – for candidates (different one each week). Volunteer to support Eddie Lorton (for Mayor) and Denise Myer (for County Comm 3) on Sunday, Aug 14. Two hour shifts starting at 9:30am or 1:30pm. The NV GOP office, 3502 S.Virginia, Ste A2


                 Ray Rocha announced that RedMoveNevada took off the summer, but they are moving from                                                                                                                                                                     the Atlantis to the Reno Town Mall. Watch for the first event on                               September 3, 9:30am.



Gary Schmidt introduced Pete Sferazza – candidate for Municipal Court Judge, Dept 3. Pete served on the County Commission for 10 yrs, 12 years Mayor of Reno, and Gary has known Pete for 20 years and calls him a friend. Pete follows the facts and operates under the rule of equal justice for all.


Pete Sferazza – Has been a City Councilman, County Commissioner, Mayor. He is running for judge to return to his roots in the judicial system. Equal justice for all. Before we take an action, we must be sure that we have complied with the Constitution and what happened to Trump 2 days ago (raid on Mar-a-Lago) was unprecedented. Has endorsements of Reno Police Protection Association and The Washoe County Deputy Sheriff’s Association and believes public safety is the #1 issue. Crime has increased lately and Pete is proud of the support of rank and file law enforcement. He is not an establishment candidate and most of the time the establishment funds his opponent. He is running as a nonpartisan judicial candidate. Juanita Cox spoke in Pete’s favor as a man who is very fair and even-handed. Roger Edwards spoke in Pete’s favor as well and has known Pete for 25 years. Open Meeting Law (OML) violations dismissed en masse by Atty General Aaron Ford, to which Pete is opposed.


John Eppolito – Washoe County School District (WCSD) meeting yesterday. RGJ published “former high school counselor convicted of producing child pornography.” This counselor had full access to Infinite Campus (IC). Parents and teachers have no access to this data-storing site. Counselors had access to this, stored forever, and there is a chance that this counselor could have used IC to find victims. Vendors also have access to this database. Last year, when the Board voted to fund Communities & Schools, which the Board said had no database. Yesterday WCSD voted again to fund Communities & Schools for more student data, including discipline & attendance and student climate survey, even after they learned that Communities & Schools does have a database. US Atty General Merrick Garland’s son-in-law is with Panorama Education, which makes the surveys (and some say, psychological testing) of these kids.


On Protect Nevada Children Facebook page, at the top, is a form to opt-out of the surveys. also has a link on how to opt out.


State Legislature – just put out a 51-pg report on how they are trying to change the way School Board Trustees across the state are appointed instead of elected (or a hybrid version of this).


            Colleen Westlake – WCSD District B candidate. This is a breeding ground for predators and our children are the prey. Don’t let your kids take the surveys; make sure neighbors and other parents understand that they are grooming our children; the WCSD is under water financially and their lack of foresight and planning is hurting our children. Anytime kids feel insecure or stressed, they can be excused from class to go visit the Social Worker, who has couches and lets these kids rest for awhile and take a break from the classroom. New Trustees need to be elected to do the conservative Republican wishes.  She is willing to debate Ellen Minetto.


             Cathy Kennedy Reyes – thanks for all the support, but now we’re going into the General and the other guys are pulling out all the stops. Melanie Sutton is celebrating her 20th Anniversary and Graeme Reid is out of town with his family. Denise Myer running for County Commission 3 and also could not be here today. But all these candidates deserve our support. Please think of them with a donation and your vote.


             Carmen Ortiz, candidate for AD27. Encompasses Sun Valley, other parts of the north valleys and a tiny part of Reno. Running against Angie Taylor. Carmen learned that Angie Taylor may not actually live inside District 27 until November when redistricting takes effect. Larry Chesney of Picon Press said he would investigate that and report on


Hug High has video and audio recordings in the classroom to help us see what the teachers are saying. They have been known to change what they are saying when someone other than a student walks into the classroom. Has been on Sun Valley Advisory Board, elected to Sun Valley Gen’l Improvement District (GID). She works for WCSD, working with at-risk students. The joint legislative committee on Education met last night to lay out the plan to appoint school district trustees.


             Caroline Smith – We are 90 days out from the November election. 75% of all new registered voters are Republicans. In Clark County, voter rolls are being purged and we gained 1800 more voters than Dems. There is lots of training at the State GOP office, 3502 S. Virginia. will post all the candidates’ info. Ladies for Laxalt, Aug 12, 1:30-2:00pm. Nv Federation of Republican Women have revamped their website,

             Nicôl Herris – RWR President, many events happening. Nonpartisans #1 issue is economy, 2nd is public safety. All this social-emotional learning or LGTBQxyz nonsense in the schools is not even on the radar. There is a fundraiser for Sigal Chattah for AG. State GOP is walking/calling for 2 candidates every week. This week it is Eddie Lorton & Denise Myer.


             Matthew Buehler – veteran for 21 years. He will stand for the conservative values that we need in our schools. His area is primarily Sparks and a little Reno, all within the McCarran circle. He had yard signs. His opponent is Skip Daly, who is getting nasty.


             Christine Garvey, candidate for Sparks Mayor. The day before filing received the answers for why they were not going to prosecute the homeless for burning down her neighbor’s garage (because the homeless don’t have the wherewithal to prosecute). Ed Lawson doesn’t share the same values as a conservative Republican. Safety is the basis for Chris’ entire campaign because Sparks is a great place to live and raise a family. The CARES campus is sucking up more and more of our tax dollars and giving us fewer good results.


             Jackie Hager – has hats that would be great for the Basque Fry, plus neck wraps that are cooling, especially in the hot sun and would be good for the rest of the summer.

Next Meeting – Wednesday, August 24, same time, same place.
