  1. She never should have let Tark take her place in congressional race. Safe public bathrooms should be number one priority

  2. I agree with Jay Strass. Susie Lee should not be in Congress and defeating a first-termer is the easiest to do in US House races. A multi-millionaire Dem socialite in this political climate winning CD03 must be reversed.

    Victoria should have never involved herself in the Ward II Recall and has a big target on her back in two years if the Crazy Israeli is not compensated x 4= 28 million bucks over his original 7 million spent for Badlands, by Queensridge property owner crybabies who all initialed their CCRs and not one of them are suing their attorney for malpractice! They are all trying to get the City to buy the golf course with Redevelopment Agency dollars which should never happen for the precedence it would set

    Ms Grey being associated with West Valley detested political leper Dina the Dinosaur in a GOP leaning Ward sunk her before she ever began and she should not come back in two years!

  3. Fiori and Seaman will both team up as utter embarrassments for the City of Las vegas in the coming years – Hopefully this idiotic duo will be voted out when the municipal elections are moved to the same election in November
