Mayor Andy Hafen invited 17 year old author Manika Ward to his chamber so that he could meet her in-person and to present her with a Commendation Letter.
Mayor Hafen had heard of Manika's on going campaign to raise $15,000.00 for her favorite charity, the Nevada SPCA no kill animal shelter. She is raising the money from sales of her children's book, "The Exciting Adventures of BOO".( )

After making the presentation, the Mayor and Manika sat down together for an informal discussion about her book, her background and her charity of choice. Mayor Hafen was very interested in Manika's persistent attempts at reaching her goal, that he wrote down his home phone number and handed it to her. "Call me if you think that it might help your cause by me attending your next event".

Both posed for photos and exchanged gifts. Manika handed Mayor Hafen an autographed book and the Mayor handed Manika a book on the History of Henderson.
The Mayor shook hands with everyone, Manika, her father Wallace and her mother Grace. Goodbyes were said and Manika was thrilled this day as she starred at the commendation letter all the way to the elevators. The mayor returned to his office and were not a hundred percent sure, but we thought we heard laughter coming from the mayors office.
Maybe he started reading the EXCITING ADVENTURES OF BOO?

Gee, I teared up when I read this useless post ..If the mayor of Henderson would do something about the morons, aka; Henderson police force idiots who victimize and entrap Henderson citizens by writing $300 tickets all day, that might prove more benefial than some horseshit award. Perhaps the mayor works on commission from attorneys.?. Do the pigs get commissions as well ? Henderson PD tyou are pricks..Worthless pricks at that ! Go screw yourselves you worthless bastards.
