The local chamber of commerce let go its marketing coordinator last week — a decision that is angering some members.
The board of directors unanimously voted against renewing the contract for Vince Howell, who has served as the coordinator since September 2008.
This week, Howell called the action “retribution through association.”
Matt Martinez, president of the Las Vegas-San Miguel Chamber of Commerce, said the contract was too pricey.
“We want to get the best bang for the buck,” he said.
