Glenn Cook, Las Vegas Review-Journal Columnist, talks about his latest article and other issues going on around the valley. The Nevada Commission on Ethics summoned Carolyn Edwards, president of the Clark County School District board of trustees, and Joyce Haldeman, the School District’s top lobbyist, to answer for alleged violations of the Nevada Ethics in Government Law. Both are to appear before the Commission on July 17 and 18 to answer allegations that they used taxpayer resources to push for the passage of the “Question 2” ballot initiative to raise taxes to fund educations. Karen Gray, Reporter and Researcher for the Nevada Journal, talks about why they are getting summoned to answer allegations from November 2012.
