(Henderson, NV) — February 11, 2022. Over the last month, there has been a tremendous outreach by constituents, community leaders, and advocates of public education urging me to run for Senate District 12. I would first like to thank all of those who reached out to me personally for believing me to be the most qualified candidate for this seat.
After speaking with those who reached out, as well as my family, I have decided to announce my candidacy for Senate District 12.
I have spent my career in classrooms working with teachers, support professionals, and parents to improve the quality of education for all our kids. As I listened to the hundreds of people who reached out, it became clear that the issues I want to address most in Clark County can be better addressed in Carson City, Nevada. To those that elected me in 2020, please know my goals for our kids and community have not changed. From chronic underfunding and the largest class sizes in the country to transparency and accountability issues at the school district, Southern Nevada’s public schools face no shortage of issues. Progress has become nearly impossible at our school board level, and I am going to do my best to make things better and more efficient from the top down.
As an educator, all I want to do is help our kids and community, and with the urging of that same community, it became clear that serving in the Nevada State Senate presented a unique opportunity to bring another educator’s voice to fight at the Legislature and repair our broken school district in Clark County.
To all of you who called, texted, posted “Run Lisa Run” on social media, and signed the petition online, my answer is ‘yes, let’s run!’ Thank you for your encouragement and support.
