Clark County has one of the highest budgets in the country , nearly the highest fuel taxes in the country and our sales taxes are approaching California levels. All of this under the purview of the Clark County Commission.
We must put a stop to runaway spending of our tax dollars. Every entity that receives taxpayer money must be audited.
Cindy is proposing an exemption for Senior Citizens and Veterans from the threat of foreclosure for unpaid property taxes.
When we vote for and elect representatives we trust they will be good stewards of our tax dollars, not to pick winners and losers or do special favors for a select few based on who donates the most, while enriching themselves.
One party has controlled Clark County government for a decade! They have had only one policy; to expand the size and scope of our Clark County government with higher taxes, more fees, more regulations and more special favors to cronies. Say NO MORE and vote Cindy Lake.
PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF POLITICS AS USUAL!
As evidenced by so many recent elections, people are tired of politics as usual and a vote for Cindy Lake for Clark County Commission G is a vote for real change and for far better representation.
Small businesses are the real job creators
Entry and ownership must be easier with no roadblocks. Cindy will find ways to reduce license fees, regulations and burdens to business so that small business may be allowed to compete and thrive. No more special favors, no more picking winners and losers. Government should never compete with private business.
Occupational Licenses are a barrier to employment. Many are unnecessary and burdensome. Cindy will make it easier for those who want to work to be able to.
Debt expenditures (bonding) on recreational facilities and stadiums stop when Cindy votes NO.
Wasteful spending stops. Cindy will vote to audit every agency and project funded by taxpayer dollars.
Water and Air
Cindy is a strong 2nd Amendment proponent and is rated "A" by Nevada Firearms Coalition. As such, she will advocate that every law abiding citizen carry and become partners with Metro.
Homelessness- An exploding problem with many causes; our cost of living is sky high and rising, both legal and illegal drugs are too readily available, many homeless have criminal records with nobody to hire them and families are broken and are no longer a safety net. The county must provide shelter first, we can find the resources, then identify needed services and employment.
Transparency and accountability for all.
When there are no more homeless on our streets, when everyone is employed, when there's not another homeless veteran, when there are no more cones on the road, and when every question about October 1 is answered, we can THEN pay more to build and pay more to maintain another park.
The Board of County Commissioners meetings are currently held on Tuesdays at 9AM. More of us would be able to attend evening meetings. Cindy will call for a time change. Additionally, each and every one of Cindy's votes will be published online, before and after the meetings.
Fiscal Responsibility-we must stop borrowing against the future.

When you elect Cindy Lake for Clark County Commission G, she will represent YOU and your interests, NOT special interests.
Fairness, not favors.
More freedom, less government.
Why Cindy fights...
*When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing -
*When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors.
*When you see that men get richer by graft, and by pull than by work
*When you see that your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you.
*When you see corruption being rewarded, and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice .
"You may know that your society is doomed.”-Ayn Rand
