Laxalt wraps up tour with Douglas, Lyon

Staff Reports
Adam Laxalt

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt is wrapping up an information swing through the state on Thursday in Minden and Yerington.

Laxalt and members of his staff will meet with the public 10 a.m. Thursday at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1616 Eighth St. He’s scheduled to be in Yerington at 2:15 p.m.

“The tour will bring the Office of the Attorney General to Nevadans across the state,” said spokeswoman Monica Moazez. “Although the office represents the interests of all Nevadans each and every day, the ‘AG for a Day’ tour provides an additional opportunity for Laxalt and his staff to hear the concerns of residents in each county and to be directly responsive to them.”

Moazez said staff members will present local topics that are affecting residents such as open government, trends in consumer fraud, domestic violence, guardianships and elder abuse, taxation and local government finance and military legal services.

Afterward, the attorney general and his staff will listen to residents’ concerns and answer any questions.

“I strongly believe that the closer the government is to the people, the more effectively we can meet their needs,” said Laxalt. “That is why this ‘AG for a Day’ tour is dedicated to bringing the Office of the Attorney General directly to the people of Nevada.”

The idea for bringing the office to different locations originated in November 1968 when Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt created his “Capital for a Day” tour. With members of his cabinet, Laxalt traveled around the state to identify and address issues of concern.
