Stirring Controversy: Lyon Co Commissioner Chairperson Proposes Trump Justice Complex in Yerington

With ongoing major local issues looming in Mason Valley and all of Lyon County, Nevada (few to no housing rentals; high cost housing; broadband accessibility; road, water, wastewater infrastructure challenges, etc.),¬† Lyon County Chairperson Vida Keller of Silver Springs issued a controversial proclamation to name the Justice Center in Yerington the “Donald J. Trump Justice Complex.”

This proclamation is on the agenda for discussion at the next Lyon County Commissioners monthly meeting on Thursday, August 5th in Yerington at 27 S. Main Street starting at 9am.

The Lyon County Justice Center serves all of Lyon County and is located at 911 Harvey Way in Yerington. (Harvey Way is named after long-time Yerington resident and Juvenile Probation Officer Harvey Pinkerton.) Photo courtesy of lyon-county.org.

In July, after Commissioner Ken Gray proposed to name a street in Dayton after former President Trump, the Lyon County Board of Commissioners  eventually voted 3-2 against it: Henderson, Hockaday, Jacobson against; Gray, Keller for.
