LAS VEGAS – Doctors and nurses took to the streets of Sun City Summerlin on Sunday to talk with voters about candidate for Las Vegas Mayor Chris Giunchigliani.
“I support Chris because of her independent stance on issues.Â She listens to all her constituents before she makes a decision.Â She doesnâ€™t just run with the pack, and I love that independence,” said Dr. Nick M. Spirtos, Director of Women’s Cancer Center of Nevada who was one of the volunteer canvassers.Â “I can’t thank her enough.Â She has supported efforts to keep women treated,” Dr. Spirtos said.
Giunchigliani thanked the health care professionals and noted that she has a solid platform on improving health and expanding both medical care and job opportunities.
â€œIâ€™ve proposed capitalizing on UMCâ€™s highly rated trauma, burn and cardiology departments.Â We can make it a true teaching hospital, partner with additional organizations as the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health did with Cleveland Clinic,â€ Giunchigliani said.
â€œWe can train doctors and health care professionals, create new jobs in an expanded and improved medical center, and become a magnet for medical tourism,â€ Giunchigliani said.

On Tuesday, March 22, Chris G met with the Korean-American community in Chinatown to discuss her plans for the Asian-Americans in Las Vegas, and hear about the Asiansâ€™ concerns about the city particularly about security and problems encountered by small businesses such as taxation, zoning, and licensing.
