Belkot plans to raise awareness of the mostly ignored drug crisis; supporting the police to help bring down crime, and beginning to evaluate homeless services with a ‘reduction-based’ strategy

On Wednesday (Nov. 16), the Clark County Elections Department reported Michelle Belkot expanded her lead over Chartisha Roberts by 3,432 votes, and with only 1,700 ballots left to count, secured the District 2 Council seat.

Belkot thanked her supporters. “Thank you to the 40-plus fantastic volunteers, including many families and children, generous donors, and District 2 voters! My campaign wouldn’t have been successful without your help, and voter numbers certainly reflected that. People want action, and I clearly articulated solutions and our community responded.”

Belkot’s Campaign Manager Rob Anderson stated, “We ran a campaign based on common sense values of less government overreach, lower taxes, tough on crime by supporting Deputies, and an overall approach of being really honest with voters on Michelle’s positions. Voters are tired of getting happy talk with no action. Michelle was refreshingly honest with voters sharing her experience and how she plans to tackle the county’s challenges, and the voters responded favorably.”

Once sworn in at the beginning of the year, Belkot will get to work on the actions she promised, and the voters now expect. Those actions include raising awareness of the mostly ignored drug crisis; supporting the police to help bring down crime, and beginning to evaluate homeless services with a “reduction-based” strategy.

As I have gotten to know Michelle over the months, I’m most impressed with one characteristic. Her ability to really hear the person she is speaking with. Not just “listen” in the way a politician will do, but “hear”. Her views are sincerely held and along with her compassion for those less fortunate or who’s sad situation is of their own making, she has discipline and strength honed by her service in the military. She brings management skills in overseeing large budgets and people. I hope the other councilors recognize her skills and will work well with Michelle.
