Congressional candidate Patricia Ackerman comments on the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ackerman statement in response to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Carson City, NV (September 20) – Patricia Ackerman, the Democratic candidate for Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, released the following statement in response to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday:

“Today, we lost a pillar of justice in our nation. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg led a life of integrity and served as a beacon of hope for millions of Americans during her tenure on the Supreme Court,” Ackerman stated. “As we mourn her passing, we must also renew our commitment to promoting fairness and rooting out systemic inequalities in our legal system. In her memory, let us steadfastly continue to march forward bearing the torch of progress.”

About Patricia Ackerman

Patricia Ackerman is the daughter of Ukrainian immigrants who arrived in this country fleeing the destruction of World War II. Patricia’s mother was forced slave labor for Nazi Germany, while her father almost starved to death in a concentration camp. At the age of 15, Patricia left a home plagued by domestic violence. With a GED in hand, Patricia started her own successful small business as an interior landscape designer at the age of 21. Patricia would go on to become an award-winning stage actress, a member of the Long Beach Mounted Police, an FBI independent contractor, and an accomplished high-altitude mountaineer. Patricia’s greatest driving force in her run for public office is her mother. From 2007-2013, Patricia acted as her mother’s primary caregiver. Toward the end of her mother’s life, Patricia could not find a local doctor who would take medicare in a timely fashion. Having to wait weeks, her mother passed away the day before her appointment. Patricia Ackerman wants to lead the charge in producing a healthcare system that is affordable and accessible to Northern Nevada. Follow Patricia on Twitter or Facebook.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away…

Governor Kate Brown Orders Flags Lowered to Half-Staff in Honor U.S. Supreme Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff immediately tonight, Friday September 18, 2020, for the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The flags will be at half-staff until the day of internment. Once that date has been established, we will send out another notification to advise when the flags will be returned to full-staff.

The White House issued a national flag-order.

Patricia won’t rest ’til the votes are in and she’s got an airline ticket to Washington DC to represent all of us….

Donald Trump’s campaign is making a mockery of COVID-19 safety, having indoor rallies and knocking on doors.

We’re putting the health of our community first by phone banking from home.

Sign up to make calls to flip Nevada’s 2nd District.

Or, donate here to help us GET OUT THE VOTE!

Donald Trump held a crowded rally in Patricia’s hometown, and has restarted dangerous indoor rallies around the country.
We care about our community. That’s why we were wearing masks and safely campaigning from home as Donald Trump spreads lies about mail-in voting.
Phones from home are THE MOST important way to get voters to return their ballots in this critical swing state.

Well we can’t knock on doors or call together an office, we’re staying connected.

Volunteers from around the nation phone banking together on Zoom — and it’s fun!
Ballots will go out soon in Nevada’s first ever Universal mail election.
Will you sign up for a phone bank shift today?
Thanks for standing up!
— Ackerman for Congress

League of Women Voters want everyone to get to know candidates for election in November

Election time can be very confusing for many voters because most political candidates don’t live next door to everybody else.  But we absolutely must become familiar with who they are and what they stand for.

Enter the League of Women Voters, an organization that’s been trying to reveal most, if not all, of the hopes and desires of those running for office and whether you agree with their positions – or not.  And having most, if not all, of the candidates starring at you right out of your own computer screen, it makes it a little less troublesome to observe the candidates front-and-center not to mention the ballot initiatives affecting our governments.

The League of Women Voters will be holding a series of “Candidates Forums” October 9th through 16th all starting at 6pm.  The forums are made possible by NGBN-TV and The Nevada Appeal newspaper.  Each forum will be broadcast LIVE on NGBN-TV at 6pm on October 9, 12, 13 and 16.

  • October 9th:  Assembly District 40
  • October 12th:  Carson City School Board Trustee
  • October 13th:  Statewide ballet issues, University Board of Regents, Recognize All Marriages, Pardons, Voter Rights and Energy.  This particular event was pre-recorded earlier in the month.
  • October 16th:  Congressional District 2

Board of Supervisors pick McFadden Plaza for Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s Market crossing the street to its new home

Carson City Supervisors have selected McFadden Plaza to be the new home of the town’s Farmer’s Market, with a sizeable shade structure so the vegetables don’t cook in the high desert sun – also to enhance the comfort of shoppers who don’t want to get overly sunburned.

Supervisors weighed several locations including the market’s current spot of the Curry at Third Street parking area, as well as the Brewery Arts Center’s generous quantities of asphalt.

The Supervisors picked McFadden’s Plaza for it’s obvious visibility and exposure to passing motorists going up and down Carson Street and proximity to downtown shopping. 

The next step is to finalize the market layout and installation of a rather large shade structure.  Sadly, the veteran trees currently standing in the parking lot across from the McFadden Plaza at Curry and Third will be removed and replaced with more appropriate species of trees dotting the rejuvenated parking lot.

Acknowleding many long-stay motel rooms need fixing up – stricter enforcement of building codes

The Supervisors tackled the growing problem of treating motel rooms like apartments – a sizeable number of which are in less than perfect repair.  The Supervisors gave city Planning Director Lee Plemel marching orders to more strictly enforce the city’s building codes so that less than enthusiastic motel owners will bring their properties back up to where they once were years ago, or sell their properties to investors who will do the job.  No time-line on an improvement surge was mentioned.  But the Supervisors’ intent was clear.

Carson City “School Zones” now run from 7am to 4pm in Carson City

The Carson City School District has changed the rules of the road that go by Carson City Schools.  The school district and the School Board have agreed that two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon don’t provide sufficient safety for school children and faculty.

The new rules now mandate school zone status from 7am to 4pm on school days.  In short, 15mph speed limits in school zones everyday there is school.  Weekends and periods where there is no school means that the normal speed limits remain – usually 25 mph.

Trump violates state laws: Thousands gather in Minden – Could lead to a new spike in virus outbreak – Death toll could rise

Governor Sisolak blasts Trump on failure to obey state’s rights to protect their citizens.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement on President Trump’s actions this past weekend in Nevada:

Tonight, President Donald Trump is taking reckless and selfish actions that are putting countless lives in danger here in Nevada. Despite reports from his own White House, despite local officials in Southern and Northern Nevada reiterating to the venues the existing restrictions in State emergency directives, tonight, the President of the United States is knowingly packing thousands of people into an indoor venue to hold a political rally.

The President appears to have forgotten that this country is still in the middle of a global pandemic. Early on in this crisis, when it came time to exhibit real leadership and make difficult decisions to protect the American people, he failed to develop a unified national response strategy. To put it bluntly: he didn’t have the guts to make tough choices — he left that to governors and the states. Now he’s decided he doesn’t have to respect our State’s laws. As usual, he doesn’t believe the rules apply to him.

Instead, he came into our State and blatantly disregarded the emergency directives and tough choices made to fight this pandemic and begin reopening our economy by hosting an indoor gathering that’s categorized as “high risk” according to his own CDC. This is an insult to every Nevadan who has followed the directives, made sacrifices, and put their neighbors before themselves. It’s also a direct threat to all of the recent progress we’ve made, and could potentially set us back.

As Governor, I have worked with public health and infectious disease specialists to create emergency directives to protect public health and get our economy back on track. That means limiting gathering sizes, mandating face coverings and practicing social distancing. All of which the President recklessly disregarded for his own gain this weekend in Nevada.

At a time when Nevada is focused on getting our economy back on track and protecting public health, the President’s actions this weekend are shameful, dangerous and irresponsible.

I want to thank the local governments – like the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority and the City of Henderson – who have done all they could to ensure businesses and visitors follow the state COVID-19 directives.
