Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt announced his “AG for a Day” northern Nevada tour beginning on September 6 in Fallon, Nevada. The tour will bring the Office of the Attorney General to Nevadans all across the State. Although the office represents the interests of all Nevadans each and every day, the “AG for a Day” tour provides an additional opportunity for AG Laxalt and his staff to hear the concerns of residents in each county and to be directly responsive to them. The idea for bringing the office to different locations originated in November of 1968 when Nevada Governor Paul Laxalt created his “Capital for a Day” tour. With members of his cabinet, Governor Laxalt traveled the State to identify and address issues of concern.
In keeping with this tradition, AG Laxalt will be accompanied by members of his staff representing major divisions within the Office of the Nevada Attorney General on his “AG for a Day” tour. Collectively, they will present on topics affecting local residents such as open government, trends in consumer fraud, domestic violence, guardianships and elder abuse, taxation and local government finance, and military legal services. Following the presentations, AG Laxalt and his staff will listen to the concerns of residents and be there to answer any questions.
“I strongly believe that the closer the government is to the people, the more effectively we can meet their needs,” said Laxalt. “That is why this ‘AG for a Day’ tour is dedicated to bringing the Office of the Attorney General directly to the people of Nevada.”
Beginning in Fallon, the Office will start with a northern Nevada tour that will include Eureka, Ely, Wells, Elko, Battle Mountain, Winnemucca, Lovelock, Minden and Yerington, respectively.
