Local GOP honchos threaten town board with arrest
It might have been wise for members of the Pahrump town board to bring bail money to Tuesday night's regular meeting.

What PTO #46 does is make city incorporation a voting matter to be passed BY THE PEOPLE only. Forget “constitutionality” until it is/isn’t ruled on by a court.
Remember the logic in 2005 when this was passed by the then Town Board AND FAVORABLY ENDORSED by the vast majority of residents here in town? We were constantly being asked to vote FOR or AGAINST incorporation as a city. EVERY TIME it was brought up for a vote by the residents of Pahrump it was soundly DEFEATED. One of the “End-Around” schemes then was to incorporate just the “highly taxable areas” of Pahrump for cityhood hoping to better enable future passage. Due to the “zeal” of some of the proponents of “cityhood”, this measure was adopted – thereby requiring the entire town limits to be incorporated AND the requirement of a public vote.
This PTO ties the hands of any current or future town board over the matter of incorporation and leaves it in the hands of the people.
Because of this I support PTO #46 wholeheartedly.

I just dont get how someone could repeal an ordinance that they have no right to repeal. If it comes down to it, next meeting perhaps MORE people need to show up, like say the 90% of people who do not want to be stuck in a crappy city, and arrest the town board.
They are setting this town up for a near riot over this, and Lopez is 100% behind this push for incorporation with her friendly Town Manager lead around by his nose.

Wow, that lopez is an angry radical. People like her just go off one day, she is dangerous.
Nasty names were what prompted the recall? So breaking the law is OK with this bimbo, but nasty names are a reason for a recall? Hey Lopez, Here is your clue. Your recall LOST because no one likes you, what you stand for, or your incorporation agenda. Get it?
Oh yeah and recall me because I am not part of your LA RAZA HATE GROUP, which is anti white.
REMEMBER: LOPEZ = LA RAZA LOPEZ = LA RAZA Look it up. Its fact.
I got news for you Stephanie, It isnt going to stop anytime soon. Pahrump has seen a bunch of people like you, they all left, defeated in the end.
Read this maniacal screed from her to Bill Carns.
Positive Pahrump ‎@ Bill- As I speak from my emotion side I would like to address the recall I just held for pure racism from an elected official. You stand for all these things, why didn't you sign the recall? We had a public official calls Latino's nasty names, acted and wasted several county dollars by tagging up her vehicle during work hours, using county supplies and vehicle, an elected official that was using her "freedom of speech" right and belittle Hispanic people. To abuse her power and treat others different just because of color, If you stand for what is right, why in the world didn't you sign the recall? As for "cheer leading" from the back you are damn right as most normal residence don't attend these meeting of fear something like a citizen's arrest would take place. I have never seen such craziness in my life. You and your "GROUP" Jumped up surrounded the TB officials and started to scream what you feel "we the people" want. You my friend don't speak for me. Just because 36K people don't show up to these meetings does NOT mean you speak for them as well. I do NOT agree how you handled yourself as a "peace officer" and leader that encouraged others to act just as childish. I do agree that you have the right to say and feel the way you want, by why would you act like a school yard bully? Why would you feel that the TB meeting was a great way to start a "riot"? You as a "LEADER" should know there is always a right place and time for things. You weren't any better than Mrs. Matson, you criticize and point fingers yet your hands are dirty. You should be ashamed of yourself as the ONLY goal that night was bad PR, screaming, finger pointing and another item to make Pahrump look bad. All I'm saying is enough is enough; you need to re-think who is advising you to act this way. Your "followers" Donna Cox, Sam Jones and several others that were in the video have been doing this hoopla for a long time and the truth of the matter we all stopped listening to them yell and scream, threaten and bully. They and the others are no different from a barking dog but when approached they tuck their tails between their legs and run. I hope you get your message heard differently as we don't need this for our community. I hope you see that I to agree that we all won’t see the same things, agree to disagree, have our own views and ideas but I’m extremely disappointed what really came out of this, town officials escorted out the back, head-line news in Vegas and Pahrump and several bad and negative comments. What was your goal? Nothing that you wanted happened, unless you wanted the negative fame light, YOU GOT THAT. Congrats, you are just another person to me that made our community look like shit!!! Have a great day!

I was watching town board meeting on the tv and noticed that the guy wearing the American flag shirt was rude and demeaned citizens in the audience. Does anyone else think that this guy is unfit to serve as a public servant?

The only people making this town look bad are Stephanie Lopez and her loser friends
#7 Jun 19, 2012
Is that the loud mouth on the council that yells at people like they are children?
#8 Jun 19, 2012
WTF? Why is Stephanie Lopez still here? Stephanie, I'm new and have never met you, but from everything I've seen and heard, I don't blame the local natives one bit for their disgust with you.

Deport Lopez, back to California. Deport her and her family of mexicans, Deport them all Probably married her for citizenship anyway, lord knows its not her looks.
You know why she is here? Because the Democrat party has her on the payroll to "Tame and change Pahrump" And that is right from the mouth of one of her so called supporters.
