I grew up in a family of Nevada firefighters who taught me this: You always answer the call when someone is in need – that’s how I've lived my life and it’s why I'm running for Congress.
Serving Nevada families has not only been my career, it’s my passion. It’s why I served as a firefighter and paramedic in North Las Vegas for 20 years, took on the tough fights as Speaker in the Nevada State Assembly, and brought people together in Carson City to make life better for Nevada families. And, it’s why I know I can do a better job in Congress than Cresent Hardy.
I live in Northwest Las Vegas with my wife Janie where we're raising our three young children: Jackson, Jillian, and Jameson. Most weekends, you can find me cheering on my son's Little League team, taking my daughter to dance class, and camping with my family while we explore the backroads of our great state.
I hope you’ll join me in answering the call for Nevada families by getting involved and supporting my campaign.
