People have fought with blood and sweat for our freedom…
The Lyon County Freedom Organization was created to PROTECT the hard-working citizens of Lyon County. The freedoms we all enjoy are coming under attack by a group of individuals who don’t agree with our heritage and identity. An offshoot of “No Little Girl,” an anti-freedom group wants to shut down Lyon County’s legal brothels by having county residents vote to criminalize and eliminate the brothel industry. Legal brothels have significantly contributed to the economy of Lyon County for over 63 years and, in that time, Nevada’s legal brothel industry has been lauded as a shining example of the safest and most community-friendly way for adults to exercise their right to legally engage in adult entertainment.
We formed because we believe it was time to speak up and not allow this group to dictate how we live. When your freedoms are under attack, you must fight back. People have fought with blood and sweat for our freedom and if they start shutting down legal businesses that they personally don’t agree with, you must ask yourself the question: What Next?
We are here to educate the public on the economic impact that these legal businesses have in Lyon County. These legal businesses generate over a MILLION dollars in revenue both directly and indirectly to Lyon County. They support local organizations and they bring in tourists who spend money in our community. If these businesses are shut down, some of the ramifications are:
- Less $$ for Public Safety.
- Less $$ for Seniors.
- Less $$ for Veterans.
And above all, HIGHER TAXES on YOU!
We need to stand strong. We need to stand together to keep our Brothels Legal
The Banning of Lyon County Brothels
Every once in a while we have a few people who want the brothels gone. But this time, it has been politically targeted personally towards Dennis Hof.
First off, the “No little girl “ committee is based out of Reno. Why are they not targeting the Mustang Ranch? Because they said themselves, they want Dennis Hof out of business. They say no local big businesses want to be in the same county. What about Telsa next to Mustang Ranch? On their website, they have faq’s. They made up the questions, then they made up the answers. If they were to ask me the same questions, they would get different answers. They are talking about illegal prostitution. You can not compare the illegal and legal prostitution. It is apples and oranges.
The ladies, employees, and all the people in Lyon County have their own religion. One religion is not better than another. But most importantly, they all come from the same core belief, Do good, be good within our hearts.
There’s a reason why The County Commissioners are in position. They get all the facts then they vote to make the right decision. The public does not have all the facts and are not educated enough to be able to make that decision. What happens when the public wants to outlaw guns? Liquor, gaming, what’s next, the color that you wear? Are they going to vote that people can’t wear black after 8pm? What about religion and race? Is that next that it has to be a certain religion or race to be able to live in Lyon County? That appears to be the route that this is going.
People make statements that just are not true about legal prostitution and others automatically believe what they hear.
For instance there is a girl named Rebekah Charleston who is working with No little Girl, and I have no idea who she is. I personally not ever seen her before and do not recall her working with us. I have had our accounting department run her name and nothing comes up. If she did come out here it was not long enough to receive a tax form.
Another is a person named Deanne Holliday. She is a disgruntled former employee who has been spreading lies about us and the brothels for years. People say something and people automatically believe that it is gospel.
If it goes on the ballot, and if the brothels are shut down, they take it out of the commissioner’s hands, they have to wait until the next vote goes back on the ballot on the following year. And the Commissioner’s hands are tied even to vote on the smallest issue. Which doesn’t make too much sense.
We employ over 550 independent contractors every year and over 125 employees. They are dependent on their jobs to take care of themselves and their families. We have employees that have been with us over 15 years and longer. We do business with the local businesses in Lyon County because we want to keep it in the community.
“No Little Girl” states, the prostitutes will just go home. No, they won’t, the ladies will go out on the streets and get caught up in the illegal side of prostitution. That’s why the girls come here to the brothels in the first place, to try and do the right thing and be legal. Prostitution is the oldest profession and it will not go away, this is why Lyon County legalized it so that way it can be regulated and keep it under control.
The Working Girls are here to make a better life for themselves, their children and their families. They are going to school, getting Masters Degrees, buying homes, putting their children through school, taking care of their families. How and Why do I know this? Because it has been my life, my whole life for the last 26 years. I do not have a husband or a boyfriend. I have no children, these girls are my children and family. I work hard and I keep a tight ship. I do not have a record or issues with the Law, not even a parking ticket. I respect the law and live a clean life. I do not drink, smoke and have a zero tolerance on all drugs. The ladies respect me as their Mother, because in a way I am their mother and do not pass any judgment upon them. I do not allow excess drinking and any drug of any kind is intolerable, even marijuana. I do not allow on the property among the girls and clients. They are not even allowed to cuss in the parlor, this includes the clients as well. I do not let things get out of control because I am always in control of it in the first place.
I have never let a girl work that did not have a sheriff’s card or was not cleared from the doctor first. I would never put our brothel licenses in jeopardy. And yes, we have to coordinate the doctor visits with the lab results and with the sheriffs station. And if one doesn’t come through, they will have to wait. The ladies come from all over the country, sometimes they fly in and have to wait until they are cleared. This can sometimes take up to a week if something falls through the cracks. These are good girls, they have all passed the federal background check and have no diseases.
We check ID’s of all our customers to ensure they are of legal age to walk inside and also to drink, this is true for the ladies as well.
Sadly, people tend to be hypocrites. They go on dates, they have dinner, give flowers and then have sex after their date. That seems to be ok in people’s eyes but when the almighty dollar is exchanged, all of a sudden its bad. Lyon County has been doing it right since 1971 when they took it out of the criminal’s hands and put it into a highly regulated industry.
I have meetings called Tea Parties every week with the Ladies, where we bring in business people to help them succeed; bankers, insurance, accounting executives, and more to help them with their every day lives.
We celebrate birthdays every week and some of the girls say this is the first time that they have ever had a birthday cake or a party.
We have craft days where the girls get to just have fun and we even have karaoke so the girls and the clients can sing their little hearts out. We have clients come in here just to celebrate their birthdates, the clients are also considered family. We treat people with respect and never judge anyone by race, gender, religion, or anything else.
Thank you again for taking the time to read this. I know all of you are very busy and it means a lot to be able to voice not only my opinions but the Facts.
