Governor invites Legislators to meet with him

By ThisIsReno

Official Governor Jim Gibbons imageSUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE  Governor Jim Gibbons has announced that his office will schedule regular meetings with state legislators to discuss state budget issues. “I am concerned that legislators may become alarmed at Nevada’s unprecedented budget challenges,” Governor Gibbons said, “But now is the time to show leadership and be prudent with public funds, so I believe the more discussion we have with legislators, the more opportunities we will have for ideas and understanding.”

Governor Gibbons’ staff has calendared several “open door” meetings where legislators are welcome to come to the office and share their thoughts and ideas. “The budget issues facing the state will require us all to work together,” Governor Gibbons said, “And I will make sure all legislators have a chance to represent their constituents as we seek solutions to get Nevada working and back on track.” The first “office hours” are from 10 am to noon on Monday, December 21 and will be scheduled every two weeks through February.
