The article reports on the statement of Mayor Michael Montandon of North Las Vegas, Nevada that he might change his stance from being a gaming-growth opponent due to the actions of Clark County officials. According to him, the Clark County Commission is no longer treating gaming revenues as funding for the public. He cited the recent trend of not building parks outside the county and distributing Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority money only on the Strip.
