Campaign Updates

I want to share some thoughts with you on the events of the past several days. The state of America today, further shattered by George Floyd’s murder, breaks every patriotic heart. The raw outrage we see in the streets comes as a pandemic has needlessly killed more than 100,000 of our loved ones and more than 40 million Americans are out of work, afraid they won’t be able to provide at the dinner table let alone next month’s rent or mortgag
For over two months Nevadans across the state have been making do with a changing lifestyle due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Public service workers have adapted and continue to keep our communities healthy and safe with the services they provide. This is true for larger cities in our state, as well as smaller communities like West Wendover, Nevada.
Even with most in-person classes canceled at state colleges and universities, some campuses are still providing services to students and staff. And custodial workers like AFSCME member Silvestra Avila continue to keep campuses sparkling clean.

I’m proud to be a Correctional Officer for the state of Nevada. Currently, state public safety workers in Nevada are the only public employees without the freedom to negotiate with our employer. Correctional Officers across Nevada are coming together as AFSCME to change this.
