Like so many in our community, I am shocked and devastated by the murder of Jeff German. Jeff was a talented reporter who was tenacious in his research, speaking truth to power, and being a voice for those who go unheard. He was a fierce advocate and we will be forever grateful for his voice and the way he exposed abuses within the Public Administrator’s office. We are grieving along with Jeff’s family and friends, his Review Journal family, and the Las Vegas community.
In the coming months, there will be plenty of focus on the perpetrator of this horrific murder. For now, I am trusting the dedicated Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Clark County District Attorney’s office to bring the perpetrator to justice while we focus on saying good-bye and processing our grief over the loss of Jeff. I will remember his unwavering integrity, his bravery, and the many insightful/revealing stories he gave to our community. Please join me in honoring his legacy and commitment by holding him and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers. Rest Well, Jeff, you are Loved & Respected!
VOTE REID IN THE 2022 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY!
My Democratic friends, you will have an opportunity to vote REID again very soon! OK, not a Searchlight Reid, a Boston Reid through marriage: Rita Page Reid 2022 primary candidate for Clark County Public Administrator (a job I know something about, really, 12 years!)
Rita Page Reid, with 15 years as Assistant Public Administrator, is the best choice in the primary race and will win the office in November, IF successful in the primary three-way contest.
Ms. Reid came from her position as Assistant County Clerk to elected Shirley Parraguirre, and having worked in the office of District Attorney Stew Bell. Rita was introduced to me by Dan Ahlstrom, who was then sitting CCPA, and had seen Rita’s work when he was in Stew Bell’s office. I interviewed Ms. Reid, and I admit my decision included the thought that since she was good enough for Stew and Shirley she would be good enough as Assitant PA for Cahill. A good decision turned out a great decision. I knew I could trust Stew and Shirley!
