Ex-legislator’s name considered for sports complex

CARSON CITY — The late state assemblyman and supervisor who was a driving force behind the creation of several athletic fields in Carson City might soon have his name on the sports complex.

The Nevada Appeal reported that the Carson City Parks and Recreation Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to recommend that the Board of Supervisors rename the Edmond Sports Complex as the Pete Livermore Sports Complex.

Livermore died Oct. 20 at the age of 73. The two-term assemblyman had decided against running for re-election. He was a city supervisor for 12 years and president of the Carson City Youth Sports Association for 25 years.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ronni Hannaman said the complex was Livermore’s “signature park.”

Newly elected Assemblyman P.K. O’Neill said his “heart and soul” is there.
