Bob Beers was elected to represent Ward 2 in 2012 on the Las Vegas City Council. Here is a map of Ward 2: Ward 2 Map in PDF if you need to really zoom in…
The City of Las Vegas maintains an Open Data Portal and is working to make it better.
In 2014 and early 2015, Beers led successful opposition against City of Las Vegas taxpayers handing millions of tax dollars to a wealthy developer to build a Major League Soccer stadium in downtown Las Vegas, even though it was preposterous to think Las Vegas would be offered a franchise. Here is RJ coverage, and here is Las Vegas Sun coverage. The Sun coverage states that Beers is running against Harry Reid. But when Reid announced his retirement, Beers decided that mission had been accomplished, and decided instead to run for re-election to the City Council in Spring 2017.
His work freed up money that had been allocated to the wealthy stadium owners. Last year, approximately $25-million was invested in neighborhood parks, and the city is scheduled to make an identical parks investment this year, because of his efforts.
