National Organization for Women PAC endorses Patricia Ackerman for Congress 

Carson City, NV (April 1, 2020) – The National Organization for Women Political Action Committee has formally endorsed Patricia Ackerman for Nevada Congressional District 2. NOW PAC only endorses candidates who take uncompromising stands on: reproductive rights and justice; economic justice; ending violence against women; racial justice; LGBTQIA+ rights; and constitutional equality. 

Jeri Burton, President of Nevada NOW, stated: “Nevada NOW was happy to recommend that NOW PAC endorse Patricia Ackerman for NV-02. We were impressed by her tireless community involvement on NOW’s core issues and we feel she will be the important feminist ally that we need in Nevada.” 

Growing up in a home plagued by domestic violence, and witnessing firsthand the effects of patriarchy on my family, women’s equality has always been a driving force in my career,” stated Patricia Ackerman. “As someone who has served with the Long Beach Mounted Police, worked as an FBI independent contractor, and been a high-altitude mountaineer, I was often the only or one of few women in the room. Organizations like NOW PAC are critical in breaking down unnecessary barriers, and I am honored to receive NOW PAC’s endorsement.”  

The endorsement from NOW PAC is in addition to the following in endorsements received by Patricia Ackerman:

  • National Women’s Political Caucus
  • Six PAC
  • West Wendover City Council Member Kathy Durham
  • Nevada State Democratic Party Central Committee Member Larry Jackson
  • Sparks City Council Candidate Elvira Diaz
  • Jessica Padrón, Founder, Padrón Strategies & Solutions

A problem “boilered over” at the medium security prison Friday

CCFD checked out a malfunctioning boiler Friday afternoon

Prison workers and prisoners were  taken aback a little bit today when a prison boiler threw a fit.  Reports say that a malfunction with the boiler sent what was possibly steam mixed with a little smoke in the south central area of the complex.

Firefighters worked with Prison staff to get things back to normal…

Carson City Firefighters got over there pretty quick and discovered it was more steam than smoke and that something went sideways with the boiler.  After checking things out for the better part of a half hour firefighters were confident that prison staff could handle the issue. 

Firefighters got back into their trucks and command vehicles, drove through the southeast prison gate and headed back to headquarters.
