Candidate for U.S. House Patricia Ackerman demands that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy be fired!!!

Sign the petition: urge the next administration to FIRE postmaster general Louis DeJoy!

Donald Trump appointed multimillionaire campaign donor Louis DeJoy as Postmaster General. In just a few months, mail has been delayed, postal worker hours have been slashed, and slow mail delivery threatens our election.

Americans depend on the mail every single day. Mail delivers essential medications, election ballots, bills, checks, and other essential goods and services.

Louis DeJoy serves Trump’s personal agenda — not the public. We need a new postmaster general.

Sign the petition: urge the next administration to FIRE postmaster general Louis DeJoy!

Ackerman Statement in Response to Douglas County Sheriff

(Minden, Nevada) —  A demonstration was held in downtown Minden this week where supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement gathered to voice their concern about police brutality in America as well as remarks which were recently made by the sheriff of Douglas County.

In July, the Douglas County Library Board was putting up for consideration a diversity statement which in part read that “The Douglas County Public Library denounces all acts of violence, racism and disregard for human rights.” It also offered support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

In response to the board’s proposed statement, Sheriff Dan Coverley released a public letter which included “Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, please do not feel the need to call 911 for help.”

In light of the today’s demonstration and the sheriff’s remarks, 2nd Congressional District candidate Patricia Ackerman released the following statement:

“It is unconscionable that a law enforcement official would make such a reckless and irresponsible statement. Suggesting that members of our community should not reach out to 911 emergency services for help under any circumstance is hurtful, needlessly erodes trust, and undermines our citizens’ ability to exercise their Constitutional rights.”

“I applaud those who spoke out today against hateful rhetoric. We must always use our voices to drown out the noise of divisiveness. Let us also continue to affirm that Black Lives Matter in Nevada and beyond as we march towards a more just society.”

The erupting fire was lightning quick and snuffing it out was just about as fast…

It doesn’t take much….

6:30 pm A lightning bolt hit the hillside overlooking the Indian Colony in Southwest Carson City early Friday evening. It was a pretty good hit because it caused a very visible fire. A neighbor down below near the intersection of Boyle and Wialaki grabbed a bucket of water, walked up the side of the hill and doused most of the flames. Carson City Fire Fighters joined in and some spotty rainfall helped finished off the rest.

But neighbors in the area should not let their guard down. With so much dry brush, a hiding spark could erupt and cause an encore.

Governor Sisolak lays it out – “Racism is a public health crisis across the United States.”

Governor Sisolak
“Racism is a public health crisis nationwide.”

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued a proclamation this week to formally declare “Racism is a public health crisis nationwide.”

Nevada’s chief executive said “Given Nevada’s diverse population as a minority, majority state, this call to action raises awareness so Nevada does not perpetuate poor health outcomes due to systemic racism during and after the pandemic.

“Institutional and systemic racism has gone on far too long in this country and in this State. Based on research, we are taking a proactive approach in joining fellow leaders around the country to declare racism as a public health crisis, “ said Gov. Sisolak. “I am grateful to be joined by the Nevada Legislature in recognizing that racism manifests in measurable ways, including public health. I look forward to working with Nevada leaders and the Office of Minority Health and Equity on this critical issue.”

Experts and studies have shown that negative social determinants, with racism being at the forefront, have adversely affected the health of minority communities. This has also been demonstrated in many forms including unequal access to mental health services and a lack of educational and career opportunities, among many others.

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the challenges caused by racial disparities within Nevada’s communities, especially in the form of virus and environmental exposure risks, and through all major stages of health care.

With this proclamation, Nevada joins other state and local governments that have passed or are considering similar declarations to raise awareness and with the goal of instigating long-term change across all sectors of government, including education, housing, and criminal justice. Importantly, this proclamation also enhances work already being done by the State’s Office of Minority Health and Equity, which was initially created by the Nevada Legislature in 2005 and expanded in 2017.

The Office of Minority Health and Equity engages communities statewide to promote health equity and combat health disparities through advocacy and education. For example, the Office is supporting important legislation signed by Governor Sisolak during the 2019 Session which addresses the results of systemic racism and requires cultural competency training for health care providers.
