State Sen. David Parks, D-Las Vegas, said today he is taking a run at the Clark County Commission seat that Rory Reid is vacating.
Parks, 65, said he hopes to use his four decades of government experience to tackle the county’s pressing budget problems.
Parks is the third to declare candidacy for the District G seat. Former Clark County School Board member Mary Beth Scow and Greg Esposito, a planning commissioner, entered the race last month.
Reid is running for governor.
This has been the rumor going around town for some time, so it isn't really shocking. I just wonder why he'd give up his gig in Carson City just when he was getting started. After all, doesn't it still feel like SB 283 happened just yesterday?
Still, I'm sure he knows how to get Clark County moving again... So maybe we need someone as effective as he on the Commission? I guess we'll see.
