This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Tom Warden.
Tom is senior vice president of community and government relations for Summerlin, the master-planned community under development by The Howard Hughes Corporation. He manages media relations as well as government affairs at the local, state and federal levels.
In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Warden talks about the unique legacy of Howard Hughes; the land swap that protected Red Rock Canyon from development; the urban core of Downtown Summerlin and the impact of the Vegas Golden Knights and the Triple A baseball stadium on it; and the expansion of additional transportation options to the area.
Prior to joining Hughes, Warden served for three years as director of public communications for Clark County. Before that, he was a reporter and news anchor with KLAS-TV, Channel 8 in Las Vegas, earning an Emmy Award for investigative journalism while at the CBS affiliate.
Over the years, Warden has worked with numerous non-profit community organizations and currently serves as vice president of the Vegas PBS board, Chairman of the Get Outdoors Nevada board, Trustee on The Nature Conservancy board, and a member of the Clark County School Community Partnership Council.
