1) Tova Roseman – had emailed Carole with this news and it was supposed to be read at today’s meeting, but Carole failed to do so.


Tova recently had dinner with her nephew, who is a Navy Seal. Discussing the vaccine, he mentioned that as soon as it was mandated and during the time when they were allowed to use the religious exemption clause, several thousand personnel submitted that form.  Then the exemption was disallowed and these personnel still refused to get the vaccine, even upon losing their careers.  All these people were immediately fired knowing they would lose all their benefits, including retirement and health insurance.  This includes members of the Seal Team and Special Ops.  Each member of either of these 2 units cost the Navy about $6 million in training expenses over a period of 3 years.


Now the government is going after them to recover that $6 million each!!!  Horrendous things happening behind the scenes.


2) Carole Fineberg



I started writing Newsmax to complain about John Gizzi’s opinion piece, but then

realized I could be in big trouble by publicly endorsing one Republican over another

while serving on the Washoe County Republican Executive Committee. It’s against

our Bylaws.


If anyone would like to comment, please feel free to use my comments (below)

with your name (or write your own) and here’s where you can send any



If you think this has merit, please spread far and wide. I’d love to overload their

inbox with email comments from the Nevada grassroots.  My comments:


The opinion piece about Adam Laxalt vs Catherin Cortez Masto was slightly

misguided.  Your columnist John Gizzi doesn’t really understand what voters in this

state want.


Captain Sam Brown ( is a war hero and was able to

raise $1M in 90 days. He has great appeal among the grassroots, most of whom

find Laxalt an empty suit. True, President Trump endorsed Laxalt, but even Trump can

make a mistake from time to time.


I believe the Nevada grassroots will turn out in record numbers to make Sam

Brown the nominee.


3) Nicôl Herris (lots of announcements)

Item 1 – Election Integrity Workshop sponsored by the Republican Women’s clubs across the state on January 15 is SOLD OUT!

Tanner  Durfee – on behalf of the Capt Sam Brown campaign, Tanner provided an update.  A campaign office has been opened at 1301 Cordone (corner Vassar & Cordone). They have many volunteers and $1M was raised in the first 90 days of the campaign.  30K calls have been made and 140K doors knocked.  There are hats, signs and shirts at the 1301 Cordone campaign office, which is staffed Mon-Fri, 9-5pm. Please stop by and show your support, give a donation or help make some calls.


Tony Grady for Lt Governor – Born in Norfolk, VA, but before he was 2, his family moved to Philadelphia, PA, which he calls home. His dad was an vocational ed instructor at Hampton College. then he went to work at the UN and took his family to Nigeria, Thailand (where Tony graduated HS). Tony was accepted at the Air Force Academy. He has seen the US from the outside, saw socialism and abject poverty. He served for 20 years in the Air Force, achieved Lt Colonel status and commanded a B-2 Stealth Bomber test squadron. Then he had a 20 year career flying for Fed Ex.


He married to Donna for 38 years, has 4 adult children, the youngest of whom is a West Point Grad and a Captain in the Army, commanding 100 soldiers in his company.


He is running because socialism appears to have invaded Nevada and he can’t sit back and let it happen when he worked so hard to fight against it in the military. His platform includes ridding our state of Critical Race Theory (CRT), ensuring kids get readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmetic and re-introduce competition in schools because it makes us all better.


Contact Tony via his website,, where there is a volunteer button, donation button and a stay informed button.


Dr Fred Simon for Governor – Fred is both grateful and humble to Nicôl Herris, who welcomed him to join her table in the bar at the State Central Committee meeting in Carson nearly a year ago. On March 26 in Las Vegas, Fred will be sponsoring a symposium with major doctors from all over the US, including Peter McCullough. As Governor, Fred will change healthcare in NV. Medical research shows seniors no longer get the same care in ICU wards as do 40 yr olds. We have lost our conscience.


As a trauma surgeon, he has a window to humanity (rich, poor, old, young, all races, gang members). We all die alone and we all die with but one thing – our character. This is the lesson he teaches his employees in the restaurant (65% are in their teens).  So who should we elect? Conservatives who will stand against socialism, with savviness in engineering and health care safety. No one can hurt you unless you let them.


In the gubernatorial debate of January 6 and preference poll, Simon came in a close 2nd to Joey Gilbert, with the other 7 candidates who showed up much further down in the polling.


Mike Clark for County Commission District 2 – Mike wants to be proud of the community he lives in and he is not at the present. He is running for County Commission against Bob Lucey, who has demonstrated some very corrupt tendencies. Electeds should work for you, the public. Mike works for and with taxpayers all the time. Taxes are going through the roof.  Lucey was able to maneuver a part-time job for his wife at the courthouse that yielded her $140K/year. Lucey is also a part-owner in a veterinary clinic with his father (Lingenfelter). This County has an animal shelter with one of the largest budgets in the state. Is it a conflict of interest that all animal shelter animals get examined at Lucey’s vet clinic?  Go to Facebook and “like” Citizens for Mike Clark for County Commission.


Mike also let us know that Lucey has given up his seat as Chair of the Commission and appointed/anointed said position with Vaughn Hartung. Hartung has been found to violate sexual harassment policy and code of conduct in a 2016 probe and that’s who our new Chair of the Commission is.


Kenji Otto – Joe Lombardo was a “no show” at the Governor’s Debate last week (Jan 6), the only candidate of 8 not to show up. Kenji heard he felt it “beneath him.”  Even though the County Commission removed the Emergency Declaration for our county on Dec 14, the Governor’s mandate is still in effect. Masks must still be worn in County Buildings. Socialism is Marxism and vice versa.


A good film to understand what happened on January 6, 2021 is “Capitol Punishment” and although it is hard to find, it can be found in a couple of places: ($9.99 charge to watch online)  (no charge to watch the 3:40 trailer, but then you are directed to the URL above).


John Jorgensen – received an email from the Heartland Institute (conservative think tank)  entitled “Climate at a Glance.”  It is 83 pages of charts, photos, graphs and great explanations. Heartland will be printing 100,000 copies and sending them to teachers and educators everywhere.


Wayne Gordon – Wayne volunteers answering the phone at the GOP HQs and a call came in last Thursday morning that there was a busload (Amador Transportation) of people being dropped off at the Social Security office in Reno concurrent with the phone call.  The caller didn’t know who else to inform, but he also took photos of it and sent them to Wayne’s personal phone.  Wayne went to the SS office on Monday morning and the office is closed!  Wayne doesn’t know who else to inform, so he called Congressman Amodei’s office and Amodei is purportedly going to be having a conversation with social services later this week. Letter to the Editor?


Cathy Kennedy Reyes and Melanie Sutton – mention was made of these two grassroots gals, both running for School Board. Cathy in District B and Melanie in District C.  They are working together and if anyone would like to drop a donation to either of them, they are sharing a postal box.  416 Lemmon Dr, Box 245, Reno, NV 89506


ACTION ALERT!!!  Call Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jackie Rosen and let them know to stop trying to kill the filibuster.

Masto 775-686-5750 / DC 202-224-3542  /

Rosen 775-737-0110 / DC 202-224-6244 /


Janet Butcher – Recently, Cindy Martinez has had to resign from her leadership of the County Commission Brigade due to other duties and rearranging priorities. Cindy would read the agenda and let us know what to look for at the Commission meetings and what is not good policy or what our tax dollars are going to pay for.  Looking for someone else to lead this little army of civil protesters who speak out at Commission meetings.


Next Meeting – Wed, Jan 26, same time, same place. Carole will be out of town and Bruce Parks will be leading the meeting.
