(Las Vegas, NV) — State and local elected officials are getting in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which has been sweeping social media for weeks.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak accepted the challenge issued last week by Governor Brian Sandoval.

Sisolak had a bucket of ice water dumped on his head by staffers Monday morning outside the Clark County Government Center downtown.

A soggy Sisolak then nominated Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie, and Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson to follow suit, or make a donation to the ALS Association.

Sisolak added, “But what do you want to bet all three of them won’t do it.”

A few hours later, a press release announced Wolfson would accept the challenge Monday afternoon.

ALS, also known as Lou Gherig’s Disease, affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.

Since the Ice Bucket Challenge began, teh ALS Association reports donations of more than $10-million.
