LETTER: Library officials get Super Bowl tickets

Regarding “Library officials not playing by the book?” (RJ Investigates, May 19):

As a former librarian and branch manager in Los Angeles, I am surprised, shocked and angry that two high-ranking professionals with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District accepted Super Bowl 58 tickets worth thousands of dollars for their own personal use. How disappointing.

The two employees — Kelvin Watson, executive director, and Leo Segura, library operations director — have jobs that afford them an extensive benefits package and salaries in excess of $100,000. They both should be ashamed of themselves for participating in their little stunt.

At minimum, the library board needs to recover the cost of each ticket from their salaries, and both men need to issue a formal public apology, I would think.

All the Democrats in the Capitol whining and scheming to remove Mr. Biden from the ballot are being short-sighted. Joe is about to outfox them all.

LETTER: How can we report plate scofflaws?

Is it possible to have volunteers send in information on these expired plates? I would do so if I knew someone would follow through and check their status.

LETTER: Yes to red-light cameras

The camera systems must be operated by the county and not a contractor. The cost of operating the traffic camera systems must not be dependent on the fines collected.
