Opinion

EDITORIAL: Former elected officials hoping to trick voters

Name recognition paves the way to elected office. Voters’ short memories sometimes come into play, too. Robert Eliason is hoping the former works in his favor in his campaign for North Las Vegas constable, and Lisa Brown is counting on the latter in her run for Family Court, Department T.

Arrests and prosecutions must not come at the expense of rights, and the Nevada Supreme Court last week made sure that’s the case for Silver State residents.
