Washoe County Planning Commission Member Thomas Daly was removed from his seat yesterday by the Washoe Board of County Commissioners.
At issue was Daly’s opinion article last spring in the Reno Gazette-Journal in which he expressed opposition to a development near Mt. Rose highway.
While some said that Daly was exercising his First Amendment rights and advocating for his constituents, the county argued that that he violated rules governing his role on the commission and the due process rights of the developer.
I see a possible First Amendment lawsuit in the offing.
