Dear Mayor Wier – I want you to know that as a resident of Mesquite, I strongly support a National Conservation Area Designation for the Gold Butte Region. As more and more people learn about our backyard treasure it increases the need for more federal resources to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience in Gold Butte. Now is the time to make Mesquite the “Gateway to Gold Butte” and capitalize on the economic benefits from protecting this wonderful area, please help make it happen. I urge you to support Gold Butte and oppose any efforts to weaken the City of Mesquite’s support for Gold Butte.
Or simply call:
