Sen. Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers and constituent relations.

Readers here know that I no longer support my state senator, Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers.

I'd say SHE knows it as well.

Last Thursday, I emailed her office the following:
Do you still stand by your "$7 billion gas tax" bill for Clark County if you hadn't voted yes?

Gotta wonder.

You see, the gas tax would have passed even if you HAD voted “no.”  It had the votes.

Yet, you claimed during the town hall meeting that had you voted “no,” Clark County would have owed $7 BILLION instead of the $700 million you acknowledged.

So, I’m just wondering: do you still stand by that statement?

Everything stated in this message is to be considered my own opinion, and not an official representation of Apple, Watermelon or any other fruit, including but not limited to tomatoes.

Actual mileage may vary. Price does not include tax, title, and license. Some assembly required. Opened packages not eligible for return.  No refunds: exchange only!  No, I don't need a 707 HP car.  Each sold separately. Many are cold, few are frozen. Batteries not included. Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. If conditions persist, contact a physician. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Keep in a cool dark place. 
Sen. Rivers has not deigned to respond as yet.

See, here's the thing: Rivers used her fake opposition to increasing the gas tax and tab fees to get elected, not unlike Tim "The Liar" Leavitt used his fake opposition to tolls to get elected.

Rivers made the statement in question and she made it during an official, sanctioned-by-the-state town hall meeting to address legislative business.

I certainly have the right to an explanation of that absurdity and as a constituent, I have the right to a response.

I await your pleasure, Senator.  But answer the damned question.
