We did request (by email to the Library Director) that Drag Queen Story Hour be placed on the Agenda for discussion and resolution, yet we did not meet the time requirements for it to be agendized this meeting.
Please note that meetings for the Library Board were cancelled for the months of June, July and August of 2022. This is in the Agenda Packet. It is somewhat disconcerting that with the record attendance at the September meeting and the concerns regarding Drag Queen Story Hour that the item was not placed on the Agenda without a public request.
From the Agenda Packet:
“Library Director Update 10/10/22 Library Board of Trustees Update Our next LBOT meeting will be on October 19 at the Sparks Library. You will notice minor edits to the bylaws and new agenda format emphasizing patron conduct. We had many public comments at the September meeting protesting the Drag Queen Storytime. I am unsure why they chose September to protest when we have our Pride events in June and July. I know libraries were generally under attack during Banned Books Week (the same week as our board meeting), which forced libraries to close due to bomb threats. I have met with our county counsel and board chair about conduct during the meeting and how to handle it. I am confident that we will be able to maintain order in future meetings.”
Please be advised that the Secretary of State has called a Regulatory Hearing regarding Elections in Nevada. It may be to address the hand-counting of ballots. As we know more, we pass the information on to you. The meeting for public input is at 1:00pm on August 12, 2022. Below are the links to the meetings. The hearing is August 26, 2022, 10:00am.
Notice of a Special Meeting
Washoe County Commissioners
Friday, June 24th, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.
1001 E. Ninth Street, Building A Reno, NV 89512
The time to become involved with what is happening in our community is NOW. The Washoe County Commissioners have called a Special Meeting, (the purpose is to certify, or not, the election) “to Canvass the Vote, pursuant to the direction of the Chair of the Board”. Did you experience anomalies during your voting process? Machines not working? More than one trainee at a voting center? More than one ballot received? Ballots arriving at your address without your name on them? Ballots not received? Was your party changed when you didn’t change it? Did you opt out of receiving a mail in ballot and being falsely told you may only vote on a machine while being refused a paper ballot be printed for you? Has your ballot gone to adjudication? Did you see ballots arriving or leaving in bags with only one person delivering the ballots (two are required)?
If you had ANY issues or abnormalities or were witness to any issues or abnormalities, I encourage you to report them here: www.washoegop.org. The link at the top of every page will take you to the forms and emails necessary to report the problems.
If you can find a moment please attend the Special Meeting on Friday at 10:00am. This is where the Commissioners either do the right thing or they attempt to force the people to swallow down the fraud like a bitter pill regarding this election. Our presence, altogether, will demonstrate to the Commissioners what the people they are sworn to represent want.
Hope to see you there,

The month of voting has begun. I pose the question, what other country takes an entire “month” to vote? Yet here we are. As we once again head to the polls with hope this time our votes will count and our voices will be heard, I would like to make the following recommendations:
1. Take your paper ballot to the Registrar of Voters Office on Election Day yourself. Do not depend on the Post Office to actually deliver your ballot. Depend on yourself or a trusted person to ensure it arrives.
2. Use the mail-in paper ballot. If you arrive to the polls without your mail-in ballot IN HAND, you will not be given another paper ballot.You will have to vote on the machines loaded with the ever-famous Dominion software.The Registrar of Voters Office is refusing to give you another paper ballot.Yes, it is against the NRS Code.No, we have no alternative around it.
3. If you choose to vote by machine, under no circumstances should you surrender your mail in ballot if you vote on a machine. Keep it in YOUR possession if you do not use it. This way it cannot be used ever at all by anyone that is not you.
4. Deliver your vote in person by machine or paper, on Election Day. It is more difficult for the algorithm to be “set” to appropriately cheat at the last minute when they do not how many will be voting or for whom.
If you are unsure who you want to vote for, here are the recommendations of Nevada Patriot (see below).
Last, if you have had and are having ballot or polling issues, the Washoe GOP website has compiled a list of documents and emails regarding what to do https://www.washoegop.org/ballots/

I am excited about our upcoming meeting this Thursday! Eddie Lorton, the only Conservative Candidate running for Mayor of Reno (https://eddielorton.com/), will be speaking about the past, present and future (I am sure) dysfunction of the Reno City Council. I can assure you that you have no idea how bad it is. I have also invited other candidates to come and introduce themselves to you. As this is an election year, I think it is imperative that you get to meet as many of the candidates as possible so you can make informed decisions at the ballot box. I know, I know. I meant Post Office box! Joel Beck (http://beckforcongress.us/) will be introducing himself as Candidate for Congressional District 2, a seat currently held by Mark Amodei. There will also be a speaker informing us about the dysfunction of our Registrar of Voter office. We all know about how the DMV is changing registrations without the voter being aware of it. But wait! There’s more! I hope to see you all there.
