Reid Statement on Marvin Teixeira

Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today on the passing of former Carson City Mayor Marvin Teixeira:

“Marv Teixeira was my friend and I will miss him. He often referred to Carson City as “Nevada’s best kept secret” and he is right. But Carson City became a wonderful place to live and raise a family because of Marv and his work as Mayor. There is a long list of accomplishments that he achieved for Carson: the Pony Express Pavilion, the V& T Railway Reconstruction Project, and the Carson freeway. As Mayor he brought new companies and new jobs to the area. He was an outstanding public servant. He always supported me and we were able to work together on a bipartisan basis for the good of Nevada. I send my deepest condolences to his friends and family during this time.”
