What keeps you up at night?

What should we be discussing on the opinion pages this year?

Dear Reader:

Last Monday, we asked for your thoughts on HOAs. The response was incredible, and the result was the package we published Sunday, a sampling of your comments and letters HOAs.

Now that we’ve started the discussion about HOAs — and it will continue with more of your ideas and opinions — we want to ask you for your thoughts about what else we should be discussing on the opinion pages this year. What else are you concerned about?

Obviously, this is a major election year, headlined by the presidential race. That will be one of the focuses of discussion on these page, and it already has been, as people have debated policy issues and the merits of candidates. As the year progresses, we’ll continue to discuss the federal budget, the debt, taxes, the economy and the candidates, among other things.

Nevada, Las Vegas in particular, has been through difficult times the past few years, and there has been plenty of discussion about how the state moves forward. The discussion on how to improve Nevada often becomes a political one rather than a personal one, and much of what happens in the political world doesn’t seem to have a major impact on our daily lives.

So what are the issues that do affect you directly? The schools? Traffic? The economy? You know, the things that keep you up at night, or at least occupy your thoughts. Those are the things we want to hear about, and we’d like to know how they affect you.

We’d love to hear your story, your thoughts and your ideas.

You can send a letter or comment on the site. If you’re sending a letter, you can email: letters@lasvegassun.com; fax: (702) 383-7264 or mail: 2360 Corporate Circle, Third Floor, Henderson, NV 89074. If you send or email a letter, please be sure to include your name, along with your address, phone number and email address for verification purposes. They won’t be published.

We’re looking forward to hearing what you think.

Best,

Matt
