Our Mayor matters to Las Vegans, and we believe voters have a clear choice in this year’s election- Chris Giunchigliani.
Only one candidate will lead us towards a sustainable and prosperous Las Vegas, a city that will provide opportunities for all of us. Only one candidate will fight for safe and healthy neighborhoods that create a sense of place and will restore pride in our community. Only one candidate has a plan that speaks to our resilience and creativity, our ability to re-think and re-imagine what our city can be. Only one candidate has pledged to make our community more livable, more connected, and more economically diversified than ever before. Only one candidate has the tools to rebuild our city neighborhood by neighborhood, and to start tearing down walls of division and rebuilding an infrastructure of inclusiveness.
We believe Las Vegas deserves a new vision, a new voice, a new leader to take us to the new frontier of economic, social, and environmental sustainability that characterizes the great cities of the West.
We believe that our Mayor matters when we’re working to identify and attract new economic clusters that are compatible with our fragile natural environment. The Mayor matters when it comes to building our future economy around local resources, rather than promoting outside ventures that export profits and wealth.
We believe our Mayor matters if we’re to provide a higher quality-of-life for all residents, regardless of their economic status or which neighborhood they call home. Our Mayor matters when leadership, vision, and vigilance are necessary for demanding government work for all the people and providing upgrades to public services, utilities and our electronic infrastructure. In short, our Mayor matters to ensure that all Las Vegans receive an equitable return on our investments.
If our community is to turn to renewable energy resources, healthier and more efficient buildings and reliable transportation options to improve the city’s public health, air-quality and livability, our Mayor certainly matters.
Our Mayor matters when decisions are more important than public image, when defending the community’s interests outweigh outside influences or popular agendas.
If we ever hope to transform the sea of anonymous subdivisions throughout our city into well-defined, civically and socially engaged, pedestrian friendly mixed-use neighborhoods that provide diverse employment opportunities for our residents, then we certainly need a Mayor that matters.
Our next Mayor of Las Vegas should be Chris Giunchigliani.
