Denise Myer For County CommissionerDistrict 3.jpg

PLATFORM

I am a long time Reno resident and I love this area. I am a constitutional conservative.  I don’t like the changes that have taken place over the last 20+ years. There are many issues that need to be addressed and I am ready to take the challenge.  I am ready to put my problem solving skills to the test and collaborate with the other Commissioners to find the best solutions for our citizens.  As the closest elected official to the people, I want to work hard to represent the people of District 3.
LIST OF COMMUNITY ISSUES
Voter Integrity

This is our most precious right, fundamental to American democracy.  Without confidence in our electoral system, voter trust, and participation decline.  Voter roles need to be accurate and updated regularly.  In this day of advanced computer databases, there should be no excuse that different departments can’t update information within days of life changes.

Housing Affordability

As of April 2021, Reno was ranked 21 out of 100 of the least affordable cities in the country.  

Statistics show a 1 bedroom apartment has increased over 90% since 2017. The homeless problem has also increased as a result of rising home and rental costs and low inventory.  We can not continue on this path. Fixing the problem won’t be easy, but I am ready to take on the challenge.  No one knows what the solution is, but it will take a collaborative effort of all the commissioners and developers to come up with hard solutions.

Transparency and Accountability

In an elected office, being transparent in all transactions is essential to voters.  Transparency promotes accountability, strengthening our government system.  Information provided to our constituents should be accurate, complete, and available without unnecessary delay.

Law Enforcement Resources

When other cities defunded the police, the results were disastrous.  As a county commissioner, it is my responsibility to ensure our law enforcement receives the funding they need to do their job and enforce the law.  I want our children and grandchildren to be safe in our neighborhoods.
