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.
Call to Action February 22, 2022 at 10:00am Washoe County Board of Commissioners 1001 E. 9th Street Reno, Nevada Arrive Early
My Fellow Patriots,
NOW is the time for action. Attend, email, call! DO what you can. You all did it once before on the 8th of February, 2022.
Hundreds of citizens attended the Washoe County Board of Commissioners Meeting on February 8th demanding our elections to be fair, honest and transparent.
Attending the Meeting Commissioner Jeanne Herman (District 5) successfully placed on the 2/22/22 Board of County Commissioners Agenda a resolution with steps (allowable by law) to strengthen election processes and security of the 2022 election. Please see the attached Agenda and Resolution documents for your review & use in next week’s meeting. The Resolution is Item #14.
You may give general public comment at the beginning and at the end of the meeting (Items #3 and 18, respectively). You may also give Election Integrity related comment during Item #14. You may also speak on any other item on the agenda about which you are concerned, but it must be related to that item alone.
Washoe County Registrar Deanna Spikula will be giving a presentation on “Election Administration for the 2022 Election” (Item #5). This is a discussion item only, likely without public comment, (that may change). Do use that presentation to augment any comments you may want to make on Item #14.
Comments are limited to 3 minutes. Please identify yourself for the record and consider stating, “Please ensure my comments are entered into the public record, per NRS 241.035.” This NRS is the Open Meeting Law statute and requires that the clerk take accurate minutes of your comments made during the meeting.
Please keep in mind this is a business meeting. The guidelines for conduct of the meeting are detailed on the first page of the attached agenda. Please review & be familiar with the rules to ensure we have engaging, but PEACEFUL and PATRIOTIC citizen participation.
Since the resolution and agenda have been publicized, there have been articles and social media posts condemning the resolution, inaccurately claiming it’s an effort to unlawfully suppress the vote and intimidate voters. Nothing could be further from the truth. The proposals are intended to LAWFULLY tighten provisions of the election process in order to ensure election integrity. It is disappointing to receive such criticism, but not unexpected. Our job as citizens will be to make solid, respectful points in support of this resolution. We may suffer attacks from slings and arrows of opposing forces, but we know we stand on firm Constitutional principles in demanding our elected representatives redress our grievances as provided in the First Amendment of our Bill of Rights.
I am excited to announce that we have two great speakers lined up for our meeting this coming Thursday February 10th at 6:30pm, Spanish Springs Library. Tracey Thomas, formerly with the Washoe County Voter Registrar’s Office, will be giving us information about our elections and answering questions that you might have. Additionally, we will have Eric Young, who is the senior planner for the Washoe County Community Services Department. He will be giving us an update on the County’s Envision 2040 Area Plan. It should be most interesting.
The Washoe County Republican Party will be conducting Precinct Meetings on Saturday February 19th. A precinct meeting is where people are nominated to be on the Central Committee and are nominated to be delegates to the County Convention. I strongly encourage all Republican voters to attend their precinct meeting (see information below).
There is a very important Washoe County Commissioner Meeting on February 8th where we will be requesting our elected representatives take the necessary steps to ensure election integrity in Washoe County. After all, if your vote does not count then you have NO VOICE in your county, state, or country. It is going to take all of us standing up to ensure our voices are heard.
The Secretary of State (SOS) held three days (Jan. 19, 20 and 21) of zoom “workshops”. These meetings discussed proposed Election Regulations to be added to the 2021 Election law, NRS 293. NRS 293 and these proposed Regulations involve Voter Rights, and a fair and honest election process.
Zoom “Hearings” on these proposed Regulations will be held Feb. 2, Feb. 3, Feb. 4 and Feb. 22. This is dragging out a process that should have ended with the Workshops on Jan. 21. Then the Legislative Commission of 12 Legislators are to meet in late Feburary to vote if these Regulations should become law. These proposed Election Regulations further erode the election process. Only the full body of the Legislature is to enact codified laws, not a Legislative Commission!
What YOU Can Do
1. Attend the February zoom Hearings (8 AM – Noon). See Secretary of State website (https://www.nvsos.gov/sos) (look for the Notice of Workshops in the center of the webpage), or call the Washoe GOP office for details @ (775) 827-1900.
2. Most importantly, we are asking that you email Secretary of State, Barbara Cegavske (email@example.com) and ask that no action be taken on these Regulations. Mention that you are Republican and a voter.
Express your concern about the Proposed Election Regulations, mail-in ballots, drop boxes, electronic voting systems and machine like Dominion, longer times to vote (ballot-in ballots start being mailed April 30 and Primary Election day is June 14); cleaning of our voter rolls by Soros founded and funded ERIC which is a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up; same day voter registration on Election day; ballot harvesting; on-line voting etc. All of these are cause for concern about a fair and honest election. Mention if you have concerns about the NV 2020 election being fair and honest.
Mention that the people of NV support: paper ballots with a carbon copy, no electronic voting machines/systems; in person voting on Election day only with absentee voting by military, sick or absent from state; picture ID and signature at polls; only American citizens with proof can register to vote; no extended voting days, no Drop boxes; no mail-in ballots, etc. We support a return to a fair and honest election process.
The liberal left and Democrats are driving this agenda of an unfair election process and laws in NV. They want to insure the Democrats win at the polls and maintain control at every level … local, state and federal.
Ask that no further action be taken on these proposed Regulations, and that you do not want them to become part of NV Election Law.
Emails Can Make a Difference…Please take action to stop this Election law power grab by the Secretary of State. Share this with friends and neighbors and ask them to contact the SOS also.

I am very excited about the election results from Virginia. The Commonwealth now has a Republican Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General. This is what happens when patriots stand up and do the work to ensure the election is fair and honest. It is my sincere hope that we will see a similar outcome for the state of Nevada. It will require the same perseverance and hard work from we patriots to achieve a fair election. We need both poll workers and poll watchers sign up here: https://www.washoecounty.gov/voters/get-involved/election_workers/electionworkers_form.php
I would like to point out that there is nothing in Nevada law that precludes Washoe County from requiring ID to vote. Additionally, all mail-in ballots are not required by law. We have to put pressure on the county Commissioners to change the way Washoe County votes. The Washoe County Voter Registrar falls under the county manager, Eric Brown, who in turn is appointed by the County Commissioners; they can make this happen. Let’s turn up the heat. Let’s show up in numbers at the County Commissioner meetings and demand they take action. I would also like to get a snail mail campaign going that everyone can participate in as we are pretty sure they are not paying any attention to our emails (if they ever did). More information to follow on the snail mail campaign.
Great news! Monica Jaye is now streaming live. While streaming from your computer or phone is a fairly new platform for many of us, hey, this is our Monica so I’m going to buck up and give this a try. You can listen to The Monica Jaye Show weekdays from 10am to 12pm right here: https://pilled.net/#/profile/152065 and check out her website at https://themonicajayeshow.com/
Of interest is the article by Valerie White summarizing the Jackie Calvert incident and also an article regarding the Reno Police Department being mandated to become vaxed by the Police Chief and Reno City Manager. The articles are below.
Last, but certainly not least, the Washoe County Commissioners are meeting with Carson City to determine who will fill the District 16 Senate seat. The agenda isn’t out yet; it is due out Friday. Who has put their hat in the ring? We won’t know until Friday. Yet, if you have a preference, you are going to have to speak up and let those Commissioners know. The meeting is 1PM here in Reno at the WC Commissioners Chambers (see address below). I do know that Melissa Clement is extremely qualified and in my opinion the best choice for this position. Included below is the Carson City Board of Supervisors. Write them all! The Washoe County School Board is having it’s own special meeting Tuesday November 9th from 8am to 11am to decide who will fill Jackie Calvert’s position until the election in 2022. Once again, email them or attend the meeting to have your voice heard.
I would like to challenge us all to do one thing, embrace any one item to further the taking back of this county and this state. Take on writing one email, attended just one meeting. One single step forward.

Calvert submitted her change of address to WCSD in March, 2019. Calvert claims she was unaware that her new residence was outside of District F, the district she was elected to represent. Trustees are paid $750 per month and receive district-paid full medical insurance coverage while serving as a board trustee. WCSD continued to wrongfully pay Calvert’s monthly stipend and medical insurance fees until her resignation which amounted to more than $57,000.
To date, WCSD has taken no actions to recoup public funds wrongfully paid to Calvert from March, 2019 to October, 2021. Public agencies have a duty and responsibility to recover over payments made to individuals receiving public funds. Calvert also voted on several WCSD board of trustee motions from March, 2019 to Oct., 2021 when she was not legally authorized to vote. WCSD has given no indication that they will rescind her votes on those motions.
Many questions remain regarding Calvert’s change of address notification to the school district. WCSD recently engaged a local law firm to complete an investigation, but it did not include which individuals or departments besides Human Resource knew about Calvert’s relocation prior to it being made public.
—Did HR report Calvert’s relocation to trustees or legal counsel? Who else knew of her relocation? —Which WCSD individual is responsible for monitoring issues such as this one? Why didn’t any WCSD employee investigate the consequence of Calvert’s relocation? —Is legal counsel taking action right now to recover over payments to Calvert and to rescind all of her board of trustee votes?
Special Contribution to The Nevada Patriot
“30-40 Cops are Quitting; Our Morale is the Worst It’s Ever Been” Inside Source: “Vax Mandates by Police Chief and City Manager Are Destroying RPD and Endangering the Community”
Inside RPD sources reported the following to The Nevada Patriot – A special vax-mandate meeting was held last week with RPD Police Chief Jason Soto and his top levels of officers. The meeting was motivated by the decision of 30-40 RPD officers to quit or be fired, rather than submit to forced vaccinations AND soon-to-be-required booster shots. This directive is coming from the Reno City Manager Doug Thornley, and is something that Soto does not personally agree with, but he is unwilling to challenge the City Manager.
• After the meeting, Soto’s upper level staff were directed to go back to the groups of individual officers in RPD headquarters where they tried using insincere encouragement to get the resistant cops to get their vaccinations. • A few minutes later, Thornley sent dozens of pizzas to the officers to thank them for their hard work. • And 1-Hour after THAT came a directive from Thornley to all cops saying they’d either have to comply with the vax – AND a booster…or face immediate termination.
When questioned about how RPD was going to deal with 30-40 cops quitting, when RPD is ALREADY understaffed, Thornley said that would be no problem. They would just make all the Detectives work as beat-cops, and the Detective Department would effectively stop functioning to any appreciable degree.
Also reported to The Nevada Patriot was the extent to which downtown crime has increased, because the officers are not allowed to be pro-active in enforcing the law, but must wait to be called after crimes have been committed.
A number of the soon-to-be-quitting-or-fired RPD officers are applying for jobs with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department. Others are planning to move or pursue new careers.
WHY HAS THE RENO CITY COUNCIL NOT REPORTED THIS, AND WHY ARE THEY GIVING THE NEW CITY MANAGER THE AUTONOMY TO ENDANGER THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY?
I can feel the change in the air and I’m not talking about the weather. We are having our first in-person Nevada Patriot meeting at the Spanish Springs Library at 6:30pm this Thursday on October 14th. At 6pm the library closes and the staff is typically gone by 6:15pm. While masks are technically required inside the library, please note that we do not consider ourselves the self ordained mask police and that people should make their own choices. The guest speakers include Monica Jaye, candidate for Nevada State Senate and 99.1 FM talk show host, along with Ciara of Battle Born Moms for Education which is a new organization doing battle with the WCSBoard.
Of notable importance is the is the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees meeting this Tuesday and they will be discussing the Infinite Campus. Here is what John Eppolito, who strongly opposed the use of this program, has to say about it.
Infinite Campus Nevada has created what experts call; the most massive data base ever created on students in human history – that data lives FOREVER with a paid third party vendor called INFINITE CAMPUS (IC). Data stored includes: counseling, psychiatric, medical, discipline, and minor discipline. Parents do not have access easy access to most of the data stored in Infinite Campus but numerous other parties do. A subset of IC data, including the most incriminating data, is shared with the Nevada Department of Education for their SAIN system, SAIN data is also stored forever. In addition, people like The Washoe County School District counselor that recently got arrested on child pornography charges had access to the Counseling Tab, this is one of the private tabs in Infinite Campus that parents can’t access. To learn more about Infinite Campus go to ProtectNevadaChildren.org, or if you are on Facebook you can go to Protect Nevada Children.
Also on Tuesday is the Washoe County Commissioners meeting where Chair Bob Lucey is attempting to give himself even more power. Here is what the Commission Watchdog, Cindy Martinez, has to say about this:
We are asking that you make every possible effort to attend the 10/12/21 BCC meeting at 10 am. The continuing topic of concern will always be: 1. Declare an end to the “Public Health Emergency” 2. Prohibit mandatory Covid-19 vaccines. 3. Ban Covid-19 vaccine passports/verification 4. Ban mask mandates 5. Promote good health & therapeutic treatments for Covid-19 6. Acknowledge Covid 19 is now endemic, NOT a pandemic.
There are a number of items on the agenda this week. Please review the agenda via the attached link for information. AGENDA: https://www.washoecounty.gov/bcc/board_committees/2021/files/agendas/2021-10-12/BCC%20-%2010.12.21.pdf
Of great interest and import this meeting, is a “Resolution to Delegate Decisions Regarding Litigation to the County Chair and Washoe County Manager.” Currently, Chair Bob Lucey is the subject of a number of lawsuits, most notably one by Reno Christian Fellowship, regarding the sale of their land for development. Chair Lucey was one of the “no” votes, reportedly for arbitrary reasons. The church felt sufficiently aggrieved that it sued. This delegation of authority to resolve litigation would be delegated to … Chair Lucey (or any future chair) and the County Manager, today, Eric Brown. Do you see any conflict of interest in the Chair making decisions on litigation in which he or the County Manager is either involved or directly the subject thereof? He has some ‘splainin’ to do, Lucy (pun intended). Coincidentally, the statute under which this delegation of authority would fall was amended in the 2019 Legislature. Convenient, isn’t it? Please read the staff report and Resolution. We believe you will find the scope and intent to be ample opportunity to hide the wrong doing of employees or officers of the county. Where are the checks and balances? Where is the accountability?? ITEM 12, see PDFs of STAFF REPORT and Resolution for Delegation of Authority .
Change is hanging in the air and I encourage you join in and take part.
