Name: Martin Knauss
Office: Laughlin Town Advisory Board
Party Affiliation: Nonpartisan office
Information provided by the candidate:
• Graduated from Mohave High in Bullhead City. I retired in 2014 after 35 years working for a multi-national company in various locations around the world. Returned to live in Laughlin in late 2014. Have served on the LTAB Public Works Committee since January 2016.
Things I plan to focus on if I am elected are:
1. Encourage our state legislators to change the current law that restricts the ability for communities to incorporate into a city.
2. Understand what state or county regulations/codes discourage services/businesses from locating in Laughlin. If there is economic viability for a grocery store, medical facility, etc. we need to reduce/remove impediments.
3. Highlight the unfinished building eyesore on Casino Drive to encourage the County Commissioners to address it with the owners.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
