State and Local Governments Project (Nevada)

  1. 1. Welcome to Nevada Nicole T.
  2. 2. 1849 1853 1858 1914 1925 1931 1936 Gambling legalized in Nevada by Governor Fred Balzar. The first major silver-mining district in the United States; the Comstock Lode. On October 26 th , the construction of the Hoover Dam was complete and the generation of electricity began. The first recorded discovery of gold in Nevada. In Gold Canyon, near present day Dayton. The first school was established in Nevada, located in Isreal Mott’s house in the Carson Valley. On November 3 rd , woman got the right to vote in Nevada Pair-O-Dice club opens as the first casino in Nevada; off of highway 91, present day Las Vegas Strip.
  3. 3. Education In 1853 Mrs. Allen taught in the first school in the history of Nevada at Isreal Mott’s house. This is the most important development in Nevada’s history because education is extremely important for the future of Nevada. Nevada has to be educated in order to accomplish other developments. Education is a social development because people are learning by interacting with one another and by socializing.
  4. 4. The Hoover Dam The Hoover Dam is the second most important development in the history of Nevada because it supplies the state with water. Without this stable water supply, residents would have to move out of Nevada and not as many tourists would come. The Hoover Dam makes Nevada more than just a desert. The Hoover Dam is an economic development because Nevada needs the water supply for survival. The economy needs the water supply of the Hoover Dam in order to exist. It is also an economic development because it is a tourist attraction.
  5. 5. The Silver and Gold mining are the third most important economic and social developments in the history of Nevada because both discoveries brought a rush of people to Nevada. They are economic developments because they brought in money that boosted Nevada’s economy. They are social developments because they brought people together is a sort of hobby to search for gold and silver together.
  6. 6. This is the fourth most important development in the History of Nevada because by allowing women to vote, Nevada was recognizing equal rights between men and women. This is a political development because it has to do with voting for the new politic to take over office.
  7. 7. Gambling and casinos are the fifth most important developments in the history of Nevada because they are trademarks of Nevada that bring in tourists. The gambling world in casinos is one of the main reasons people come to Nevada. Gambling and casinos are social and economic developments because it brings in money to boost Nevada’s economy and it brings in millions of people to Nevada!
  8. 8. VOTE NICOLE For Nevada State Attorney General I will prosecute domestic violence. I will keep our children safe. I will keep our gas prices from raising. I will keep nuclear waste our of Yucca Mountain. I am running for office to give the residents of Nevada what they want!
  9. 9. Do you have pain at the pump? If I am elected Nevada State Attorney General, I will investigate the high oil prices that in turn raise the gas prices. If elected, I will keep the pain at the pump from getting to $4 a gallon. <ul><li>Qualifications: </li></ul><ul><li>Research </li></ul><ul><li>High school government class </li></ul><ul><li>Basic human knowledge </li></ul>I researched the history of Nevada thoroughly. The high record of $4 per gallon has never been hit, and under my watch it will not!
  10. 10. NEVADA ATTORNEY GENERAL CATHERINE CORTEZ MASTO <ul><li>Why did you want to work for the public? </li></ul><ul><li>What was your first election like? </li></ul><ul><li>What is working for the public like? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you have to do in order to be reelected? </li></ul>Unfortunately she never replied to my interview questions. It made me a little upset that she did not take the time to answer them because I gave her plenty of time to reply as well as I told her the due date of the project. I also understand that she is a very busy woman and she probably hasn’t had the time to reply to me. I only hope that if a Nevada resident were to try to contact her with an issue or complaint, that she would take the time and listen to what they have to say and try to fix the issue with them.
  11. 11. I believe that it takes a lot of strength, knowledge, patience and organization to be an elected official for Nevada. Nevada is a state that grows so much every day and in order to keep the state affairs in order, a person needs to be very organized. In order to deal with the rapid growth, a person also needs to have strong patience. I would not want to be a Nevada elected official because I don’t believe I could deal with the stress of everything that goes on in Nevada. There are so many issues Nevada is faced with on a daily basis and I don’t believe I have the emotional strength to deal with it all. Like the old saying goes “history repeats itself;” in order to deal with present and future issues, a person has to know the history of Nevada as well as how the officials in the past dealt with the issues and the expansion of Nevada. To win the American vote, you have to know what you’re talking about. In order to know what you are talking about, you have to know your history.
