Las Vegas sinners better repent now because God has a whole new cadre of prophets heading your way- billboards!
Driving down the heart of Las Vegas on Interstate 15 is a brand new crop of billboards that simply read “God” and “Jesus-“ nothing else, no proselytizing.
But, as they say: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
Business as usual doesn’t cut it in today’s sour economy. Getting the support of a higher power hopes to be the winning ticket for John 3:16 Cook. This week he threw his colorful hat into the ring to run for mayor of North Las Vegas.
Cook, 76, is a fervent, active Las Vegas street preacher and longtime advocate for the homeless. After once running a homeless shelter and after several failed prior bids for Las Vegas political offices. But his marriage of 21 years is still growing strong with Magickal Marissa- a witch, metaphysict and astrologer.
Cook filed his candidacy last Monday.
Vowing an unconvential campaign, while courageously fighting cancer, Cook’s candidate fact sheet under the “other information” category, he wrote: “I will marry, bury, and baptize all!”
John 3:16 Cook joins a handful of other people in the race to replace term-limited North Las Vegas Mayor Michael Montandon in this year’s municipal elections.
