EDWIN LYNGAR FOR WASHOE COUNTY DISTRICT 5
I will bring professionalism and competence to government. Join me and let’s rebuild our communities and defend democracy together.
It’s time to change the Washoe County Commission. This body has tremendous power and important work to do but has been mired in dysfunction and manufactured election conspiracies. It is obvious to anyone living here that we as a community have failed to plan for and respond to record growth, homelessness, infrastructure, public transportation, and other critical issues. See my issues page for my plans to tackle these challenges.
” If we elect the same people yet again, we’ll get what we have always gotten. Washoe County residents of every political persuasion can agree on only one thing – it’s time for change.”
I pledge to bring professionalism and competence back to government. I will focus on smart growth that requires infrastructure spending. We will tackle issues of water and flooding that remain stubborn and unresolved, despite the obvious needs of residents. We need bold solutions on roads and public transit. The commission has critical work to do but cannot serve citizens while it is distracted by irrelevant concerns or beholden to moneyed interests. We have allowed developers and others to drive our agenda instead of serving our communities.
Democracy is under attack in America like never before, and it is happening at the local level. Washoe County is the swing county in Nevada, a swing state. We have been targeted by dishonest or deceived people who are bringing national-style partisanship and ugliness to our local communities. We cannot tolerate it.
Our community is better when we work tighter, and we’re going to get to the business of building a community that serves all the citizens.
