Nye County District-5 Commissioner Peter Liakopoulos, who is awaiting trial on bribery charges has handed in his resignation. Announced in Tonopah, his resignation is said to be effective Dec. 31. "With the pressing issues that I face at this time, I felt it would be better to spend my time preparing for my trial", Liakopoulos said. "Due to the time and effort that I will have to expend on this issue it will be a challenge to continue to fulfill my duties as a Nye County commissioner."
Visiting Justice of the Peace Steven Dahl ruled during a preliminary hearing on Sept. 19 that there were grounds to bind Liakopoulos over to district court on one felony count of bribery along with misdemeanor counts of offering a reward for an appointment and grafting by a public officer. This was aledged when Liakopoulos wanted to trade support for an impending sales tax increase with the granting of a museum job for his wife. The trial "Will take place this coming spring", Liakopoulos said.

Has anyone else noticed that Liakopoulos could have been a RINO? Because this town is more a conservative/Republican town, candidates will just run as a Republican to get elected. Voters need to know who they're voting for...BEWWARE!!!
