Twenty years ago we watched in silent agony as America was forever changed. Our hearts and minds have borne a heavy sorrow since witnessing the events of that Tuesday morning. 

We grieved then and we still grieve today for the inexplicable loss of our fellow Americans — men and women who started their days like every one of us but whose lives were taken in mere moments.

At a desk above the city lights, by the window on the seat of a plane, up the smoke-filled stairwells, through the limestone halls of government, to a Pennsylvania field...they were our brothers and sisters, and they will never be forgotten. 

We pause in silent reflection to remember those brave souls. Mothers and fathers; husbands and wives; daughters and sons. You are not forgotten — not today, not any day. 

They live in our memories. America perseveres. And it is our duty to remain united as one nation resolved to ensuring the light of liberty is never darkened.

Out of respect for this day of remembrance, we will not share a Small Business Saturday video today. Our series will resume next week. I hope you join me and my family in taking pause to pray, reflect, and remember this day.

9.11.2001 — 9.11.2021 

In liberty, 



Commissioner Danny Tarkanian

In order to better serve our community, I am sending out emails before and after each public meeting of the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), in order to educate the public of what the BOCC is doing. I strongly believe this is an essential communication that will ensure the public stays informed of our work and decisions. 

If you, or someone you know, wants to receive these BOCC newsletter emails, forward this email and click here to subscribe.
