This week, Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom formally recommended the renaming of McCarran International Airport for former Nevada Senator Harry Reid.
“Senator Reid has done a tremendous amount on behalf of all Nevadans–I honestly can’t think of someone who has done more for our state,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “He is someone I’ve looked up to and still learn from. Renaming the airport to denounce McCarrans’s legacy of anti-Semitism and xenophobia is long overdue and I want to thank Commissioner Segerblom for his leadership. No one is more deserving of this honor than Senator Reid and I am grateful to be a part of making it a reality.”
