In Las Vegas Municipal Court race for Department 3, the Las Vegas Tribune endorsed Cara Campbell, who won with about 10 percent of the votes or 1,500 over Judge Heidi Almase. A part of the victory is probably due to the arrogant behavior of the incumbent. Almase has the reputation for being rude to attorneys who practiced before her and treating defendants with disrespect.
Judge-elect Cara Campbell has spent nearly 20 years with the Clark County District Attorney’s office and had never considered running for elected position until several co-workers and members of the community, disappointed with the performance of the incumbent, asked her to enter the race.

Letizia has the distinction of running the successful campaigns of both Mayors Goodman and this election cycle delivered the top prize for all his other clients: Las Vegas Municipal Court Chief Judge Cedrick Kern; North Las Vegas City Council Ward 3, Scott Black, who unseated incumbent Anita Wood Tuesday; and the North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee who won his race in the primaries.
