Final Pitch–Vote “No” On Question 2 Tomorrow

 

Dear Friends,

You’ve heard from me numerous times in making the case to not vote to legalize pot–vote “No” on Question 2. Not anything more to say, that I haven’t already said.

Let me simply leave you with the list of prominent Nevadans (of all political persuasions) and their organizations that are opposing Question 2. Please join us in building the “New Nevada” that so many of us hope will be the reality for our children and grandchildren.

Thank you and best as always…Pat Hickey
