Former Governor Kenny Guinn Dies in Fall


Former Governor Kenny Guinn Died today in a fall from the roof of his home in Las Vegas and suffered a heart attack.  He was reportedly cleaning pine needles from the roof.  RIP.

I must admit that I knew little of him.  He was Governor before we had decided to move to Reno.

My first awareness, though, was that he filed suit in the Nevada Supreme Court in order to raise taxes for some project he wanted.  As I understand it, he pitted one clause of the constitution against another to get his way.

I welcome any clarification.
