….As in Henderson, the North Las Vegas Ward 3 race should go to the incumbent — Anita Wood. Wood’s challenger, Scott Black, edged her out in the primary, 33.36 percent to 30.15 percent, but we’re standing by our primary endorsement of Wood for exactly the same reason we’ve backed Marz.
North Las Vegas is moving in the right direction under Mayor John Lee and the current council. Although the status of the proposed Faraday Future automobile manufacturing plant remains in question, North Las Vegas has done an outstanding job of attracting businesses, streamlining its permit processes to make the area more attractive to developers and digging out from the budget catastrophe it suffered during the recession.
Against that backdrop, keeping the council together makes sense.
