(Nevada News Bureau Staff) – Kevin Child announced today his candidacy Nevada State Assembly District 8 seat being vacated by term-limited Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley (D). Child has run for office on numerous occasions as a Republican in the past, but has re-registered and is running as a Democrat this time.
“With the way things are right now, we need more than hope,” Child said in a written press release, “we need a proven battle plan. Believe me, I know what it’s like to have to pull yourself up and come back after losing everything that had meaning to you.”
Child, 48, says he has rebuilt his life after the loss of his wife and then his home in a fire.
Child says he has founded and actively serves several community organizations geared toward helping Nevadan’s keep their homes, discouraging youth gang activity and preventing vandalism and graffiti. He says he’s the Vice Chair of the Southern Nevada Graffiti Coalition, the Co-Chair of the Southern Nevada Gang Task Force Prevention Sub Committee and the founder of Take 5 Safe Neighbor Program.
