Neil Grad: The next Sparks city attorney Columnist Jeff Blanck: Elect Neil Grad

Neil Grad: The next Sparks city attorney
...
Neil Grad has the experience and the backbone to do just that. He won’t roll over just because a developer threatens a million dollar lawsuit . He knows that threats are easy to make but judgments of one hundred million dollars are hard to get.
Grad will bring honesty, integrity and accountability to the office. Unlike the incumbent, Grad won’t have improper relationships with his subordinates that end up in litigation nor cause the council to investigate him for unprofessional conduct. Grad will not shy away from pointing out conflicts of interest in the city’s decision making and will give the council comprehensive legal advice. Grad also will review how litigation is handled and how settlement decisions will be made.
Grad will be a breath of fresh air for the city of Sparks. He is not one of the “good old boys” and the city attorney shouldn’t be. As an elected official, Grad will have the independence to do what is right and to properly advise his client.

"The website has become necessary because of the distortions of fact which Mr. Adams has been feeding to the news media," stated attorney Neil Grad, the 12-year incumbent's opponent.
...
"This is a plain and simple statement of facts as reported by journalists from all over Nevada," Grad noted.
"It is especially timely as we anticipate more last-minute twisting of the truth with Carlos Vasquez, spokesman for developer Harvey Whittemore's Lazy 8 casino, acting as media buyer and advertising agency for Mr. Adams," Grad said.
...
Grad has practiced in both the Nevada public and private sectors for 30 years. He has served as a Washoe County deputy district attorney, assistant Sparks city attorney, as a judge pro-tem in Sparks and Reno municipal courts and assistant general counsel to the Nevada Public Service Commission.
Grad currently acts as pro bono counsel for local consumers fighting to keep community cable TV channels accessible . Charter Communications is attempting to move the public, educational and governmental channels to the higher-cost, lower-audience digital tier.
Grad won a landmark decision in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals preventing public utilities from using bankruptcy filings to win exemption from state laws and regulations.
Grad's precedent-setting case against a local taxi company recently proved decisive in stopping giant Pacific Gas & Electric from asserting its bankruptcy filing to get around state laws and regulations. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Grad's original argument on behalf of the State of Nevada that bankruptcy does not short-circuit the police powers of the state.
Grad, 54, is the father of four daughters and one son and has three grandchildren.
