The team at Clark County Today continues to grow.
For the second time in about seven months, Clark County Today is adding a new staff member. Dan Trujillo has been hired as a reporter and he brings 20 years of local experience to ClarkCountyToday.com.

He also covered community news, schools and sports for The Reflector Newspaper in 2018.
“First, I am thrilled that Clark County Today continues to grow and expand its footprint as a news source for Clark County residents,’’ said Clark County Today Editor Ken Vance. “We are blessed to have the support of a growing number of loyal Clark County residents who appreciate our unbiased and objective approach to news coverage. Our growth and success is a direct result of a foundation built on the vision and support of our founder and owner David Madore, who strongly believes Clark County residents deserve a free and independent source for news.’’
In addition to Vance, Trujillo joins a staff at Clark County Today that includes Administrator Heidi Wetzler, Webmaster and Graphic Designer Andi Schwartz, Photographer/Videographer Mike Schultz and reporters Paul Valencia, Chris Brown, Jacob Granneman and John Ley.

Dan is an experienced, capable reporter and has also shown himself to be a consummate professional with a strong work ethic, character and integrity. I am thrilled that he is joining our talented team of skilled professionals.’’
