Commissioners a treasure?

The winner of our caption contest received his prize this week: a lapel pin and a drawing of the three Clark County commissioners completed in five minutes between county meetings.


The hope is that an opportunity to win such stunning original art will encourage contributions to future contests.

Just look how happy our winner was with the package:

“I laughed out loud and adore it! Am planning to scan it so that I don’t lose the full effect.

You are a pretty amazing artist!

Thanks again: It is a treasure.”

Wait, a treasure? These guys?


Now I get that he’s talking about the drawing (thanks, by the way) but I’m also pretty sure this marks the first time the All Politics is Local team has seen the word “treasure” used in regards to something even remotely involving the county commissioners.
