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

City sets up conditions for growing “hemp”

Time marches on and so does hemp….

The Carson City Board of Supervisors today agreed that hemp, which is “not quite” marijuana, can be grown in Carson City as long as it’s grown in general, limited industrial and general airport zoned land.  It means that indoor hemp growing is the preferred method and that odor control equipment will be required.  Again, hemp is not marijuana – it’s a material grown and sold across the U.S. that has nothing to do with marijuana operations.  The Supervisors approved first reading of the new ordinance which is likely to be approved at the Supervisors next meeting in November.

School District Needs Bus Drivers, Nurses, Substitutes, Paraprofessionals, Nutrition and Custodial Workers 

Carson City Schools are hiring across the board – See below

The global pandemic has proven challenging to businesses and organizations across the state, country and world. Many local school districts cannot find people to fill open positions including transportation, custodial, nutrition, nursing, paraprofessionals and crossing guards. Many are struggling to even maintain enough substitute teachers.

With the state’s new school funding mechanism projecting flat or decreased funding in Nevada for the next several years, many districts are “belt-tightening.” However, there are necessary operational positions that still need to be filled.

The Carson City School District currently has open positions for:

  • Bus Drivers (3)
  • Nutrition Workers (4)
  • Custodians (2)
  • Substitute Custodians
  • School Nurses (2)
  • Substitute Nurses
  • Paraprofessionals (3)
  • Substitute Special Education Paras
  • Substitute ESL Paraprofessionals
  • Crossing Guards
  • Substitute Teachers

The Carson City School District said one reason for the lack of candidates is due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has caused hardships on families where working from home has forced adjustments on career assignments as well as the challenges of remote learning where students are home more often.

“The positions that are hard to fill are those where people physically need to be at work on site to clean, to drive a bus, to prepare meals, etc.,” said Richard Stokes, Carson City Schools Superintendent. “Many positions continue to remain open.”


The Issues 

Bus drivers, cooks and custodians typically start their workday before school starts and end mid-afternoon. For many workers, the earlier schedule is more challenging for those with families, especially if they have young children trying to get to school or coordinate remote learning from home. For crossing guards, the hours are intermittent during the day, which makes it difficult to maintain another full-time position if they are working as a crossing guard.

The opportunity for higher wages is part of that as well. Currently, the district employs 950 full-time and 225 part-time staff members. Of the 360 educational support personnel 100 staffers work 40 hours a week for 12 months. The other 260 personnel average 30 to 35 hours a week for 10 to 11 months.

“While that provides a ‘limited niche market,’ it makes it hard to compete with those offering higher wages or full-time work,” said Associate Superintendent Jose Delfin, who oversees human resources for the Carson City School District. “If someone wants full-time work, we’ll always lose people to that.”

The district has taken a pro-active approach since the last recession with wage studies, reclassification of jobs and increased salaries. A beginning bus driver with no experience makes $14.04 an hour. A nutrition employee with no experience makes $13.28 an hour to start. A starting custodian with no experience makes $13.64 an hour. Crossing guards will earn $10.69 an hour. Many school districts in Nevada do not even employ crossing guards and rely solely on community volunteers or teaching staff to assist with guard duties.

The benefits package also helps recruit employees and it’s available for those who work 30-plus hours a week, including the transportation department where they work 20 hours per week and earn health and retirement benefits. Some districts in Nevada don’t offer benefits to their transportation employees.

The school district also tries to keep a pool of 60 dependable substitute teachers at the elementary, middle and high school levels, along with needing a few substitute nurses each year, Delfin said.

Because of the immediate need, the school district also said it is opening some of these service-oriented positions for high school students to apply.

“We are in grave need of workers at this point,” Stokes said. “And if we can coordinate a high schooler’s schedule to where they take on a position after their school lets out for the day, the district’s rate of pay for a student worker is $10.00 an hour.”

The workshop provided an opportunity for the Board of Supervisors, along with elected officials and executive staff to discuss recent accomplishments, long-term goals for Carson City, and strategic objectives for the next five years.

The survey is comprised of sixteen questions and takes about five minutes to complete. All survey respondents will remain anonymous. The survey is scheduled to close October 31, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. The results will be made available in December and will be applied to the proposed Strategic Plan which will be presented to the Board of Supervisors. For assistance on the survey please contact the City Manager’s Office (775) 887-2100.

The money stagecoach is headed in to Carson City to help small businesses….

Gov. Steve Sisolak
Good news for small businesses in Nevada

Governor Steve Sisolak has announced details for a new $20 million grant program aimed at helping small businesses and non-profit organizations that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Pandemic Emergency Technical Support (PETS) grant program makes $20 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds available to small businesses, non-profit organizations, arts and culture organizations, and local Chambers of Commerce to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Small businesses throughout Nevada have been among the hardest hit by COVID-19 and this new program will streamline the process to get relief funding out to folks who need it very quickly,” said Governor Sisolak. “If your organization has been hurt by the pandemic and you need help with operational costs or expenses to keep your customers safe, I urge you to apply. At a time when our small businesses have made such great sacrifices, it was my priority to ensure the State gets them the support they need and deserve.”

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, our office has been focused on making sure that small businesses are protected and that our economic recovery is as quick as possible,” said Treasurer Conine. “This Program will go a long way to keep Nevadans employed, small businesses open, and our State moving in the right direction.”

The Program is being administered collaboratively by the State Treasurer’s Office, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and the Department of Business and Industry. The application process will open on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 8 a.m. and will close on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 5 p.m.

Businesses and organizations who meet the following criteria are eligible to receive funding under the program:

Have a physical location in State (includes home-based businesses);

  • Been in operation prior to March 1, 2020;
  • Have under 50 employees; and
  • Have an annual gross revenue under $4 million;

Through a simplified application process, eligible entities can apply for up to $10,000 in emergency grant funding, which is not required to be paid back. Grant funds can be used to pay for a number of expenses such as: rent, inventory, payroll, utilities, personal protective equipment, and costs associated with retrofits.

The Program was designed to be flexible so that eligible businesses and non-profits can adequately respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and safely maintain their operations.

These grant program funds will be prioritized to help those businesses that have been hit the hardest and have made greatest sacrifices while continuing to serve their communities. This list includes, but is not limited to, disadvantaged businesses, non-profits, bars, pubs, taverns, breweries, distilleries, and vineyards.

More information about the PETS Program can be found in English and Spanish can be found HERE.
