Gov. Steve Sisolak
Helping out-of-work Nevadans to keep collecting unemployment checks…
Unemployment insurance filers will continue to get their unemployment benefits without beating the streets for jobs that aren’t there.
“Continuing to waive this requirement maintains Nevadans’ access to unemployment insurance benefits while Nevada gradually reopens with new safety precautions in place for workers and customers,” said Gov. Sisolak.
“As Nevada moves through the reopening phases and more businesses move to reopen, the Employment Security Division and Unemployment Insurance will link the restart of this program with the re-opening of JobConnect offices throughout the state,” said Kimberly Gaa, Administrator for Employer Security Division. “We continue to be focused on providing benefits and extend search waivers as permitted to protect the health and safety of job-seeking Nevadans.”
Nevadans seeking Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are strongly encouraged to file online at http://ui.nv.gov/css.html. This is the fastest and most convenient way to file and it keeps open the phone lines for individuals who are not able, or do not have the necessary resources, to file online.
Independent workers, self-employed and gig workers are asked not to file on the UI website as the agency is well into the process of implementing the new module necessary to start taking claims by mid-month.
Claimants are encouraged to visit http://ui.nv.gov/css.html and at detr.nv.gov/coronavirus to view important announcements and learn more about essential resources. Online tutorial videos are also available in both English and Spanish and can be viewed on the Nevada Unemployment Insurance YouTube page here.
We have allowed money and the media, politics and partisanship, smart phones and social media, tribalism and Twitter – to twist our reality into the unrecognizable state we now see before us.

- “As an Adjunct Professor of Foreign Policy, Energy Policy and Climate Policy, I am worried for the survival of our democracy under the current President and his current errand boy, Mark Amodei. I very strongly endorse Clint Koble to be our Congressman. He will stand up for Nevadans, for our environment, for our industries, and for employment opportunities for our citizens. He will ensure that the clean energy industry is not further injured by the current administration which is pulling all support for clean energy and is massively funding the dirty oil and coal industries. Our current congressman never speaks up when the President says stupid things and does things that hurts us Nevadans. He has to go and Clint Koble is the man to replace him and help us Nevadans liver healthy, prosperous lives.”
- John Shipley, President, American Federation of Musicians Local 368
- “Clint has decades of leadership experience having worked with small businesses in northern and in rural Nevada. As a businessman in Northern Nevada and an appointee under the Obama administration as state director of the Farm Services Agency, Clint has shown his dedication to the people of Northern Nevada and we need him to be our voice in Congress. I support Clint because of his stand to make healthcare more affordable, help students to pay for college, create a sensible immigration policy, and help workers put bread on the table by increasing the minimum wage and empowering unions to create new collective bargaining units. Clint is a friend to labor and will support issues for musicians and workers in Nevada and nationally. Since the 1980s musicians and entertainers in Nevada, and through the country have been overlooked and unpaid. Thanks you Clint, for being the only candidate to show interest in the plight of musicians in Northern Nevada…”
- Chris Wicker, Chair Emeritus of the Washoe Dems, former Vice Chair of the State Democratic Party
- “I have known Clint for many years and I greatly admire his work ethic and knowledge of the issues facing Nevada and this country. As the Chair Emeritus of the Washoe County Dems, former Vice Chair of the State Party, and a former DNC member, I have seen a lot of candidates. Clint is particularly well qualified to serve Nevada. I unreservedly endorse his candidacy.”

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office, in coordination with the Carson City District Attorney, is releasing the photograph of Kahlil Deshaun Williams, 24. Williams remains in the Carson City Detention Facility on the charges of Kidnapping, Attempted Sexual Assault of a Minor Under 14, Lewdness With a Minor Under 14, and False Imprisonment. His bail is $250,000.
Williams was taken into custody on May 4th, based on detailed information provided by the victim of an alleged abduction that took place earlier in the day. At the time Williams was taken into custody, Detectives, in concurrence with the District Attorney, believed, that the release of his photograph could have unduly hampered the investigation, and therefore delayed the release of his photograph until this date.
Williams has an extensive residency in the California Bay Area, and he is known to have lived in or frequented the Reno, Sparks, Carson City areas for several years. He has family who reside in Carson City and he may have been in the Carson community for a limited time before the alleged abduction took place near his family’s residence. He has an extensive arrest history, including acts of Domestic Violence and Fugitive From Justice.
It has been alleged that Williams was in the area of his family’s residence on Hot Springs Road when he abducted a minor under the age of 14 and took her to a location where he attempted to sexually assault her. The minor was later released and reported the incident to her family who in turn contacted authorities. Detectives worked throughout the day confirming the information that was disclosed and by late afternoon were able to provide a public safety press information release. Within minutes of the release, the Sheriff’s Office received information that a person matching the description provided was in Mills Park near the skate park frequented by juveniles. Contact was made with Williams and Detectives were able to confirm sufficient information that provided them with probable cause to arrest Williams.
Anyone with information associated with the arrest of Kahlil Williams is asked to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 887-COPS (2677).
