We sent this email to Governor Sisloak
The Honorable Governor Sisolak,
It’s been widely reported in Nevada media that you want to rename McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas for former senator Harry Reid. As members of the Las Vegas Investment Club, we urge you to abandon this effort.
Here’s a video excerpt from our Jan. 31st meeting that drives home this point:
Renaming airports is a prime example of how our government spends time and money on actions that have no real value to everyday Nevadans. As one of the busiest and best known airports in the world, McCarran is doing well. Changing the signage and branding alone would cost millions.
We urge you instead to focus on issues that will help strengthen the Nevada economy and lead to more disposable income for Nevada residents.
We request a response on this issue from your office. We will distribute it to our members.
Respectfully, Executive Committee
Las Vegas Investment Club
Las Vegas, Nevada
