State of Nevada's Cities

From the outside, Nevada looks like a massive expanse of desert with two big dots, one for Las Vegas and one for Reno. 

However, the people who live here know it is actually comprised of a lot more than that. Las Vegas itself is made up of four distinct jurisdictions.

And beyond the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and the county of Clark, small cities and towns can be found each with its own unique challenges and victories. 

In this series, we talked to mayors from those cities and towns, exploring the problems they face and the solutions they're hoping to bring forward.
