  • Was it another campaign speech?

    When I entered the Plaza Hotel Ballroom, the mainly middle-aged men and women were already seated. I was introduced to Donna Smith, the executive director. Within thirty seconds, we discovered our mutual love for Hackney’s Onion Loaf, the speciality of a neighborhood restaurant on the street where I live part of the year in Chicago.

    Instant fusion over food is special, and we fused!

    THUMBS UP! ALUMBRA CARES
    March marks one full year that Las Vegas has been without an OB department.  Since the closure, Alumbra Women’s Health and Maternity Care, LLC, a for profit nurse-midwifery practice, has lost half its income, and yet is still trying to keep its doors open and improve the health and lives of women in Las Vegas and surrounding areas.  They have applied for and received a federal 501c3 designation creating a non-profit organization that can receive tax-deductible donations, and are raising funds at the office and through crowdrise.com.
