Daniel Corona, Mayor of West Wendover

"A lot of folks assume the job of a mayor is a full-time job — which it is — but, in our rural cities, the pay is not there for it to be someone’s sole job."

- Daniel Corona, Mayor of West Wendover, talks about how he lost his casino job during covid, the struggle of navigating Nevada’s unemployment system and how food insecurity personally affected him. He now works for a nonprofit that runs the same local food bank he had to go to during the pandemic for the first time.
