Nevada governor to speak in Incline Village

LAKE TAHOE ” Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons will talk about the state budget and taxes at a Lake Tahoe community meeting on Thursday in Stateline.

In an effort to bring government closer to the people of Nevada, the Republican governor will bring his “Nevada Road to Recovery Tour” to the Douglas County Commission chambers office at Stateline, 169 Highway 50 beginning at 6 p.m.

Gibbons will hold a similar meeting Wednesday in Minden at 6 p.m. and on Friday, 6 p.m. at Incline Village.

Gibbons plans to meet with residents in rural communities to talk with them about Nevada’s budget crisis and listen to their comments and ideas.

“I think many elected officials now meeting in Carson City sometimes forget the needs and wishes of the citizens who sent them there,” Gibbons said in a press statement. “I intend to let the people know what the Legislature is up to and see if the people are prepared to pay higher taxes or join me in calling for the Legislature to reduce spending.”

“I also want to see if any citizens have ideas or solutions that might help me or legislators as I guide Nevada through this economic crisis.”

Gibbons expects to speak briefly at the Thursday Stateline event and then take questions from citizens. The event is free and open to the public.
