  • Candidates field questions during Q&A session
    Tuesday, May 24, 2022 1:00 AM
    Voting is a fundamental element of a democratic society and allows citizens to have their say in how their local government is run. Being an informed voter is just as important as voting itself, as it is every voter’s responsibility to know how public officials will articulate their civic duties. 
    Meet the Candidates Night, hosted by the Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce at the Convention Center, provided voters the opportunity to get to know those running for public office face-to-face and hear from them in a Q and A forum with questions randomly selected from local citizens. 
    Most of the official races for the county will be decided at the Primary Election on June 14 with early voting held May 28 to June 10, so if voters want their say, they should vote in the Primary Election, as well as the General Election on Nov. 8.

Members of the Winnemucca City Council voted unanimously at the May 10 meeting to allow the volunteers the continued use of a facility at Sage Heights and to meet 100 percent of the spay and neuter costs for the local feral cats only. Councilman Jim Billingsley absent.
