Democrats’ Official Social Media
The Clark County Democrats have been receiving complaints about a Facebook page run by one person pretending to be a group page for PCOs in Clark County.
Our “public” Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/ClarkCountyDems/
We can also recommend the following Facebook page for PCOs and volunteers moderated by Terri Niles:

CLARK COUNTY DEMOCRATS
Check for truthfulness
Fact checking is a necessity these days with whomever publishing whatever on social media as if it is truth. Untruths hurt the persons they are aimed at and they hurt the person who is swayed by them by influencing them incorrectly.
Lately there has been rather a torrent of postings from a single individual that try to cast aspersions on contribution cash flow within various party organizations and campaigns. In short, none of this is true. Given an open mind, and a little time to understand some of the legislated processes, can offer explanation, understanding, and acceptance of all of the transactions from party organizations to candidates.
It is good to question things that you do not understand, but it is not good to make a poor supposition and present it as fact for others to believe. That is the stuff of Fox News. Presenting untruths as facts is the stuff of the Republican party.
If you want to join the Democratic party, do it to enhance the Party’s core beliefs of electing Democrats. Don’t come into the Party to cause mayhem and stop real campaign and candidate work from being done. Bring an open mind, a mind that can hear real values, to the endeavors the Party has set for itself. Anything less than that is divisive and allows major slippage, like ending up with Trump in the White House.
If you have questions, call your Chair:
Terah Pitchford - 17th LD
Candy Bonneville – 18th LD
Veronica Child – 49th LD
Rich Rogers – County
