Clark County DA Won't Throw Longtime Commissioner Off Ballot

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Clark County District Attorney David Roger says
longtime county commissioner Bruce Woodbury will be allowed to seek
another term in office.

In a letter to the secretary of state, Roger says he doesn't believe Woodbury and three other local officials are violating state term limits by running for re-election.

In 1996, the state passed a constitutional amendment limiting elected officials to 12 years in office. But the DA says terms won in 1996 do not count toward the 12-year limit.

Woodbury was elected that year. He has served on the commission
since 1981.

Roger's decision also lets university regent Thalia Dondero and school board members Mary Beth Scow and Ruth Johnson remain on the ballot.
