Here, you can learn more about Antonio's philanthropic endeavors.

Local Entrepreneur Recognized at Annual Police Gala

Las Vegas, April 12, 2024 – Las Vegas businessman Antonio Accornero was recognized as the newest Board Member of the LVMPD Foundation at the organization’s seventh annual Hidden Heroes Gala on Friday night. As an enduring and dedicated supporter of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, it was only fitting that Mr. Accornero join forces with the department, in order to bolster the capabilities of local law enforcement. By working with the Police Department in a more direct capacity via the LVMPD Foundation, Accornero will lend his extensive business acumen in helping to raise and allocate funds to build upon what is already one of the strongest law enforcement agencies in the country.

 

Mr. Accornero is grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Board, saying, “I’m looking forward to working with fellow community leaders who share my goal of making Las Vegas a better, safer community.” Karen Marben, Executive Director of the LVMPD Foundation, shared her sentiments: “In joining the LVMPD Foundation Board of Directors, Accornero brings a wealth of experience and a steadfast commitment to advancing the mission of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. His leadership will undoubtedly contribute to the Foundation’s efforts to support law enforcement initiatives and enhance public safety.”

Fundraiser Held for Mayoral Candidate Shelley Berkley

Las Vegas, March 05, 2024 – As the Las Vegas Mayoral Primary Election draws near, political candidates are ramping up their efforts to garner support for their campaigns. Several candidates are vying for the position, but if the turnout at a private fundraiser held Tuesday for Shelley Berkley is any indication, her chances look excellent. The gathering drew the “Who’s Who” of Las Vegas — and for good reason. Of all the candidates, Berkley brings the most experience, with a lengthy career that included time in the Legislature, on the Board of Regents, and in Congress. The former seven-term congresswoman has pointed to her long history in elected office, indicating that it’s crucial to elect someone who will have a “steady hand at the helm” of Las Vegas’s growth. “My congressional district overlaid the city of Las Vegas,” explains Berkley, “so there isn’t anything that was happening in the city that I wasn’t intimately involved in.”

Tuesday’s event was hosted by former Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones Blackhurst and Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson, among other Las Vegas area VIPs. In attendance was local businessman Antonio Accornero, a friend and supporter of Steve Wolfson and his daughter Rebecca, who is currently running for Municipal Court Judge. In addition to supporting the Wolfsons, Accornero is also sponsoring Shelley Berkley in her run for Mayor. “Shelley is the best candidate for Mayor,” said Accornero. “With her experience, knowledge, and strong relationship with the LVMPD, she’s going to make great strides for our growing city.”

Local Business Leader Pledges His Support in 2024 Mayoral Race

Las Vegas, January 22, 2024 – The year 2024 will prove to be a crucial one in the election cycle, not only at the national level, but also in state and local government. In the race for Las Vegas Mayor, candidates are seeking to replace termed-out Mayor Carolyn Goodman after she and her husband, Oscar Goodman, have held the role for a combined 25 years. The Goodmans’ reign mainly focused on revitalizing and expanding downtown Las Vegas, as well as bringing professional sports teams to the valley.

 

With Mayor Carolyn Goodman termed out, many people have thrown their hats in the ring, including former Rep. Shelley Berkley, a seven-time U.S. congresswoman and lifelong Las Vegan. In a candidate forum held last October, Las Vegas mayor hopefuls discussed issues plaguing the city, including pervasive homelessness, mediocre public schools, rising property crime statistics, and soaring housing costs. In presenting their individual plans, they detailed the priorities for their first 100 days in office.

Of all the candidates, Berkley brings the most experience, with a lengthy career that included time in the Legislature, on the Board of Regents, and in Congress. Berkley has pointed to her long history in elected office, indicating that it’s crucial to elect someone who will have a “steady hand at the helm” of Las Vegas’s growth. “My congressional district overlaid the city of Las Vegas,” explains Berkley, “so there isn’t anything that was happening in the city that I wasn’t intimately involved in.”

Local businessman Antonio Accornero feels that Shelley Berkley is the most qualified candidate for the position of Mayor, and he invited Berkley and her husband to have dinner with him at one of his restaurants, in order to hear the candidate’s plans for the city. “Our public education system is one of the worst in the country,” lamented Accornero, “and we really have a problem with homelessness, which affects every sector of our city. We need to address these issues now, for Las Vegas to successfully grow over the coming years.”

Law Enforcement Appreciation Day 2024

Las Vegas, January 9, 2024 – Properties around the Las Vegas Valley showed support for the law enforcement community on Tuesday by lighting up buildings and marquees in honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Across the country on January 9th each year, citizens take the lead to show support of law enforcement officers of every rank and file who have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities. They've answered a call to public service that is demanding and often unappreciated.

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was created by multiple agencies in 2015 in order for the public to express gratitude to law enforcement officers throughout the United States. Once again this year, Las Vegas residents and business leaders came together in a show of support to thank officers for their service and to acknowledge all of the daily sacrifices they make for the community.

Local entrepreneur Antonio Accornero attended an event hosted by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Foundation downtown at the Mob Museum. As a Founding Member of the prestigious 100 Club, Accornero was honored to take part in the celebration. “The men and women of Metro go above and beyond every day to keep our city safe, and I’m here to thank them for their service and offer a token of my respect.”
