Joey Herrera is in a powerful position right now. The newest Las Vegas City Council member is sitting in the driver’s seat as a rift between Mayor Alfonso Ortiz and Councilor Tonita Gurule-Giron only gets wider.
The second newest council member, Vince Howell, has been siding with Ortiz, while councilor David Romero mostly follows Gurule-Giron’s lead. So when Herrera votes with Howell, the council is split 2-2, which of course tips the advantage to Ortiz.
It happened four times at the last City Council meeting.
