Ellen feels that homeowners who are facing foreclosure on homes that they occupy should be given assistance, and she supports expansion of programs for first time and second chance homeowners. She also feels that people who take advantage of these programs should be required to repay the state at some point in the future, either when they refinance or when they sell the home so that the state can recoup its investment and have money to continue these programs in the future.
Ellen asks that We all take steps to help preserve our neighborhoods today:
*If lawns are dead or there are other code violations, call your local Code Enforcement office: 267-3970 (Henderson) or 455-4191 (Paradise)
*If pools are stagnating and turning green, call the Southern Nevada Health District Mosquito Control Hotline 759-1220:
*If you see empty houses that are vandalized, have broken windows or have squatters living in them, call the police non-emergency phone number: 311
