Nancy Dallas, Dayton Valley native, has written a scathing blog about Lyon County Commissioners Keller and Hastings conflict of interest in CMI's change of Master Plan application. http://www.ndbynd.com/2013/12/30/articles/cmi-hearing-a-questioning-of-or-a-defining-of-lyon-county-ethical-standards Dallas characterizes this as a turning point in Lyon County ethics with future repercussions if Keller ad Hastings do not recuse.

Another take-away from this story is that both Keller and Hastings lied to Jeff Page about their visits with the Ethics Commission. Isn't that all we need to know about how bent they are?

According to NRS 281A.440(1), the Ethics Commission, if requested to give an opinion, must issue its opinion as soon as practicable or with 45 days after receiving a request. It appears neither Hastings or Keller have requested an opinion from the Ethics Commission. Since the vote is Thursday, they have now left themselves open for an ethics complaint, if they don't recuse themselves, because they did not request on opinion from the Ethics Commission. CMIs application has been in the works for greater than 45 days, so there is no excuse for not requesting an opinion.

Yes, we must do all we can to stop job creation in Lyon County.

Poor CMI, unable to conceal its corrupting influence in Lyon County. Will this company be the Poster Boy for unethical corporate behavior in Nevada?

GOOD CALL Lisa Manning! It is a conflict of interest for Hastings and Keller to vote on the CMI land use and zoning change; especially given Keller's demonstrated heretofore bias against the citizens of Silver City and clear support for CMI's mission (check out this fact-filled blog by RObert Elston for details http://www.sc-resistance.com/Site/Blog/Entries/2013/12/28_Money_and_Influence.html). The Lyon County Commission should expect an ethics complaint to be filed should Keller and Hastings neglect to recuse themselves and vote in favor of CMI's request.

The ethics commission most certainly should rule on this issue. If Lyon County Commissioners have interests in the mining company or have take campaign contributions from them it is a clear ethics violation to then vote on this issue. Evangeline Elston
