Commissioner throws weight behind Robinson

Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins weighed in on the North Las Vegas mayoral race via automated phone calls Thursday.

He is supporting candidate William Robinson.

Collins faced Robinson’s opponent, Shari Buck, in a brutal race five years ago for the County Commission seat in the district that includes North Las Vegas.

“She ran one of the most negative, inaccurate and repulsive campaigns in recent memory against me in 2004,” Collins said on the call made to 8,000 voters.

In that campaign, Buck brought up Collins’ criminal record, including then 12-year-old misdemeanor battery, gross misdemeanor battery and drunken driving charges.

Robinson recently has been tied, although not by the Buck campaign, to an FBI corruption investigation in the 1990s. No charges were filed.
