LAS VEGAS – Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom has issued an apology following concerns raised by business owners who felt excluded from a block party aimed at promoting their businesses.
“I totally apologize,” expressed Commissioner Tick Segerblom. “It was inappropriate.”
The apology from Commissioner Segerblom came after he referred to some business owners at the Commercial Center as “ungrateful miscreants.”
One of the business owners, Nancy Good, owner of Core Contemporary art gallery, expressed her surprise and frustration in an email to the county, which was then forwarded to Commissioner Segerblom and Ross Miller.
Commissioner Segerblom explained that his comments were made in a reply-all email without realizing that they would be visible to all recipients, including Nancy Good.
“I talked to Nancy today, and at the end of the day, we agreed to move forward,” stated Segerblom. “I think everyone agrees that the Commercial Center has received more publicity than it has in the last 15 years.”
He further shared that he discussed the email thread with Good and acknowledged that his comment was unacceptable. He expressed his sincere apologies to her, the Las Vegas community, and the businesses affected.
Commissioner Segerblom emphasized that going forward, businesses at the Commercial Center can expect a better environment where they will be seen and heard.
