As you may be aware, in a meeting last week Nye County Commissioner Donna Cox decided to use her position and the public’s time to make disparaging and racists comments about First Lady Kathy Sisolak. Not only were these comments racist, but they walked firmly into baseless conspiracy theory. The Governor and I are not members of the same political party and we certainly have plenty to disagree about. One thing we do agree on though is that the kind of comments shared by Commissioner Cox have no place in the public forum. The behavior exhibited by Commissioner Cox is absolutely inappropriate and unbecoming of a member of the Republican Party. Nevadans should be able to expect more from their public officials.
