Pledge of Allegiance
*  Melanie Sutton reminded us about the Republican Women of Reno Workshop tonight at the Spirit Filled Church, 3175 Goldy Way in Sparks, 5pm. This is a workshop on “How to Pull Your Kids Out of the Public School System” and alternatives on providing a better education with featured speaker, Joey Gilbert. The event is free.  Invites neighbors and friends – with or without children in the school system. It’s just good info to have and spread around.

John Eppolito – There was a Washoe County School Counselor who was arrested for child porn on a catfishing scheme.

Infinite Campus gathers all data on the data kids enter from a massive questionnaire, including parents’ political affiliation and if there was any counseling or psych evaluation on the child.
School counselors, psychologists and social workers have a special tab on Infinite Campus (the data-collecting clearing house) that principals, parents, teachers, students cannot access.

ACTION ALERT:  John urged us to write, call and show up and speak out against Infinite Campus, as we are not sure if that Counselor was able to find students’ pictures and contact information from that special tab.

District A: Trustee Jeffrey Church

District B: Trustee Ellen Minetto

District C: vacant

District D: Trustee Kurt Thigpen

District E: Trustee Angela Taylor

At-Large District F: Trustee Jacqueline Calvert

At-Large District G: Trustee Diane Nicolet

All Board Members – to send an email to all board members which will receive a general response from the board president on behalf of the entire board

Angie Taylor recently commented that we have to teach Social Justice as it’s required by law. One parent recently showed up at a School Board meeting and in response to Angie’s remarks asked, “Since we are required to teach Social Justice, what would that look like?  Assembly Bill 261 doesn’t say we have to teach Social Justice, so why are we? No response.

Joe Rodriguez was chosen yesterday to fulfill Andrew Caudill’s vacant seat (District C) on the School Board. He is a candidate who was applauded by the Democrat Socialist Party. Our favorite candidate, Sean McCaffrey, came in 3rd in a field of 6. Of course… he was the conservative.

Artown and BLM – According to an open letter sent to the community, Artown Executive Director Beth McMillan writes, “Artown provides a platform for equity, inclusion, diversity and access while offering our community the opportunity to experience exceptional international and national artists as well as hundreds of talented homegrown artists.”

In another letter to the community, the Artown Board of Directors and Staff, “we stand in solidarity with Black arts professionals and the Black communities we serve. We acknowledge the daily physical and emotional risks and burdens you bear and that you are often targeted for your Blackness.”  The BoD and Staff continues, “Artown has committed to building a diverse Board inclusive of Black, Latinx, Native American and LGBT members who are able to provide important insights to these issues.”
I, for one, will not be attending Artown events this year.

Kenji Otto – has been doing research for his new role as Precinct Captain and studied the enemy:  the Democrat Socialist Party, which is sharing space with the LGBTQ Community Center @ 1745 S. Wells.  The Socialists took over the Dem Party in NV last March, the first State Party to take turn. So the DSA (Democrat Socialists of America) are running the State Dem Party in our state. The entire plan to take over the whole state is on the Clark County Dem website:

The School Board choosing Joe Rodriguez tells you exactly what you need to know, as the DSA supported him over all other candidates. Moderate Democrats left the Party and took $450K with them, turned it over to the DNC, who gave it right back to the DSA of Nevada.

Debbie Hudgens – She is organizing her precinct with meetings for news, candidates, issues and just educating her neighbors. We may all support different Republican candidates in the Primary, but when one arises out of the Primary, we should be united for that candidate.

Please go to for info on how to get involved and different things you can do. One thing is to contact your Elections Division in your County and volunteer to be an Election worker, overseeing the election process.

Lynn Gillespie – reminded us about the Meet Captain Sam Brown event next Monday, July 19, 9:30am, Mimi’s Cafe, 5090 Kietzke.  No host breakfast. Meet Sam, ask the tough questions.

Nicôl Herris – reminded us about the Republican Women of Reno (RWR) Wine-tasting event at the Great Basin, 425 E. 4th St, on Wed, July 21, 5-8pm.  $35/per person. RSVP –

Discussion ensued about State Chairman’s (Michael McDonald) efforts to demand a forensic audit and try to get rid of Dominion machines vs the County Party Chair (Michael Kadenacy) who is focused on fundraising to elect Republicans to the Legislature. The Legislature is the ONLY way in our State that any election changes can legally happen. Folks were encouraged to attend and join the County Central Committee, which has a quarterly meeting next Thursday, July 22 (see Coming Soon in the Mark Your Calendar section).

Next Meeting – Wednesday, July 28, 11:30-1:00pm, King Buffet.
