TO ALL-AND OUR DEAR ELECTED OFFICIALS,

IT IS A VERY SIMPLE EQUATION-WE THE PEOPLE OF LAS-VEGAS ELECT YOU BECAUSE WE TRUST YOU AND WE BELIEVE IN YOU, AND IN WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR NEVADA AND LAS-VEGAS. IN RETURN WE EXPECT YOU TO THINK OF WAYS TO ADVANCE AND PROTECT OUR CITY AND STATE, WE EXPECT YOU TO BE SMART AND COME UP WITH A PLAN, IN ADVANCE! A PLAN WHICH YOU SHOULD HAVE COME UP WITH IN THE GOOD OLD TIMES(which lasted for more than 20 years!)TO PROTECT US ALL WHEN BAD TIMES COME!

WHAT PLAN YOU MAY SAY? WELL LET ME PUT DOWN A FEW SUGGESTIONS.

A)Understand that Vegas is not the only place in the World to gamble and have fun-anymore. Vegas is still "moving" from its years of uniqueness which do not exist anymore. The "beast" cannot keep on feeding itself and needs to be re-invented.

B)Get the "bullet Train" to Southern Calif. as soon as possible. Stop the political "bull" and get it going. It will give incentive to hundred of thousands of people to come here as well as create construction jobs and permanent jobs.

C)Design special tax incentives programs for corporations to move to Vegas.Electronics,textile, manufacturing, High-tech,etc.5,10,15 years tax breaks. Go after these companies aggressively, not from behind your desk.Make them want to move here because it will benefit them for years to come.If Boeing was able to move it's manufacturing facility for a "minor" cost of 1.5 Billion Dollars employing 3000 people, why aren't they here?

D)There are 95 million Americans which are going to retire within the next 5-10 years. Create a special program for retirees to buy a home here.
Things such as tax breaks, medical assistance, home purchasing assistance with special mortgages,finding part time work etc. will bring them here. If only 1% will come here, it will be app. 1 million people!

E)The above will create a wave of new construction which will immediately boost the construction industry here and will start feeding the machine again.

F)Unless God decides to reverse our drought, we will need more water. Come up with an aqua-duct system. Growth needs water, so, either come up with the water duct or don't expect growth.Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, mid-west, you have the Engineers, make a decision, can be done or not!

G)Beef up the police force and the schools. If you want quality people to come here then they would expect quality of living. Our police is too weak and the schools are on the bottom of the list. How about forgetting the high-rises in Down Town and putting all emphasis on the issues above!!??

H)With all the open spaces we have as well as the sun and the wind, how about making Nevada the number one green electric power supplier in the nation? Solar electrical energy, wind electrical energy! The opportunity is here and endless, so, stop talking and bring some major investor in to invest in building this industry.

Just to name a few.

Thank you.

felix28 and all-
Paradise? maybe sometimes. I moved to Vegas from LA after 32 years there. Smog, horrendous traffic, earthquakes, restaurants are expensive, insurance is expensive, Housing is super expensive, parking $20 every 20 minutes, competition with the Jonese's etc. etc.
Paradise? I think not. Just another pretty place until the earth moves. Than we will have 100,000 people running to Vegas again. Just an opinion of someone that's left LA 17 years ago.
