Celebration of Bob McGowan's Life

The church was overflowing with friends and family, including many WashoeDEMS, who came to remember Bob at a touching service last Friday (see photos below).

Our headquarters seems a little emptier knowing he won't be dropping by to share stories and chat about why it's so important to elect Democrats to office.

Rest in peace, Bob.  We'll think of you often.

A Message from Our Voter Registration Team Leader


Voter Registration Team

We are kicking-off our voter registration activities for this 2014 election year. And we welcome volunteers who have worked with us in previous years and other Democrats who would like to volunteer this year.

We have three  upcoming events:

·Young DEMS’ “Meet Senator Reid”. April 14, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., UNR Knowledge Center. We will provide leadership for Voter Registration activities, as we support this YoungDEMS activity. This requires experienced volunteers.

·Reno Earth Day, April 27, morning and afternoon shifts, Idlewild Park. At our WashoeDEMS booth, we will introduce DEM candidates to event attendees,
distribute campaign literature, and register voters.

·Cinco de Mayo Festival, May 3 and 4, morning and afternoon shifts, Grand Sierra. At our WashoeDEMS booth we will introduce DEM candidates to event attendees, distribute campaign literature, and register voters.

For the Earth Day and Cinco de Mayo events, both experienced volunteers and new volunteers work together at the booth. We provide on-the-job volunteer training.

Please reply to me via email at fred.i.cooper@sbcglobal.net or phone (below) if you can assist with any or all of these events, or if you have questions.

Thank you. And I look forward to volunteering with you throughout this campaign season.

Ross Miller - Here's Why He We Must Elect Him Attorney General

Ross Miller

Yesterday, the Nevada Secretary of State’s office announced a landmark settlement with the Alliance for America’s Future (AAF), a Virginia-based 501(c)(4) organization (supported by the Cheney family) that spent over $200,000 on political ads (promoting Brian Sandoval for governor) in 2010 but failed to comply with state disclosure laws.

This agreement is the latest success in Ross Miller’s ongoing efforts to clean up Nevada elections and stop the flood of illegal, anonymous campaign spending.  

Under the agreement, AAF will pay a $40,000 fine – the largest penalty ever imposed for a Nevada campaign finance violation. But just as importantly, AAF will be forced to register as a Committee for Political Action and report their contributions and expenditures.

The agreement sends a strong message to the State Government Leadership Foundation, and the donors who fund these dark money groups: it’s time to come out of the shadows, and start complying with the law. You can say what you want, but you can't hide in our state.  
Nevadans have a right to know who is trying to influence their elections and what they stand to gain.

If dark money groups – and the people who bankroll them – can’t stand the sunlight, they should stay out of Nevada.

Ross has championed transparency as Secretary of State and will continue to do so as Nevada Attorney General.  Read more about and contribute to his campaign here.
