Municipal Elections Endorsement Interviews conducted by the Veterans In Politics International (VIPI)


VIPI will conduct endorsement interviews for the following municipalities North Las Vegas, Henderson, & Las Vegas all interviews are open to the public



Las Vegas Nevada; Veterans In Politics International (VIPI) represents military veterans and families of military veterans whose voices would otherwise go ignored or unheard.


Municipal Elections hold extremely important position within our communities.  These votes affect the ward that they represent and the entire city at large. These positions are the governing body of our city.  These positions exercise legislative powers by enacting ordinances, resolutions, orders, and other necessary policies.


We believe that voters need to know who these candidates are and what they stand for before going to the voting booth.  It is extremely important when a public servant gives their word to the people they represent that they have enough self-respect to keep it. So many times we find it difficult to believe our elected officials on their word, we are tired of back-peddlers that feel they could go against their own commitment to the people that they serve.


This event is sponsored by Richard Scotti law partner with Kemp, Jones, & Coulthard Attorney at Law.
