Former State Senator, Bob Coffin and candidate Adriana Martinez are in a heated race to be the next representative for Ward 3 on the Las Vegas City Council. Bob Coffin says his experience as a member of the Nevada Legislature gives him a good understanding of how to protect taxpayer money. Martinez says if elected she would make community safety and economic development a point of focus.
There has been some controversy in the race. Coffin says Martinez doesn't live in Ward 3 and thus is ineligible to run for the seat. Martinez denies the claim. We'll talk with both candidates about their view on city issues looking ahead to the June election.

Bob made an excellent point about the many "little" downtown areas that need serious help. I don't know if all of them could be called "redevelopment" districts, but many of these areas could be made into desirable living areas again.Wes –May 2, 2011 09:40:10 AM
