(Victoria Seaman) – Campaign season is ramping up! Soon I’ll be visiting Senate District 6 residents and bringing the central messages of my campaign with me—small, responsible government that is accountable to the taxpayers. While campaigning, I’ve been honored with the support of some of Nevada’s most accomplished leaders. I want to share with you an endorsement from one of the most respected elected officials in Las Vegas.
Stavros Anthony, a member of the Las Vegas City Council for Ward 4, has endorsed me in my campaign for Senate State District 6. Stavros has taken the lead on many issues at the city council, including improving city services and amenities while keeping irresponsible spending in check.
“Victoria is the kind of leader we need representing us in Carson City. She’s somebody who will keep her word to the voters and not back down to special interests. Our community needs a hardworking advocate who will work tirelessly to improve our neighborhoods and our state – and that is why I hope you will join me in endorsing Victoria Seaman for State Senate.” – Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony
I am grateful to have Stavros’ support.
September was Hispanic Heritage Month, and the Republican National Committee did a short feature to highlight my service in Nevada’s Legislature. As part of the interview, they asked why I am a Republican. “I am a Republican because I understand the value of preserving a system that rewards hard work. Many Latinos who come to the United States today do so because they believe we have a system that allows individuals to keep the benefits of their work like no place else on earth. We have to preserve that system – it fosters economic growth, academic ingenuity and technological innovation.”

This week, I was pleased to attend a Clark County School District Special Sex Education Meeting with parents from across Southern Nevada. There, I argued that the school district’s proposed changes—which would inhibit the ability of parents to control what their child learns about sex and when they learn it—were unnecessary.
Our public schools should be responsible to parents and students, and you can count on me to continue to be an advocate for parents and their involvement in the education of their children. A parent should always have the final say over what his or her child is learning in school.
The Las Vegas Sun covered the hearing, writing “‘Let’s not fix what isn’t broken,’ said Republican Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman to an uproar of applause, summing up what many in the audience came to say.”

Nevada is an amazing state full of amazing people. I want to take the time to highlight the contributions made to our community by Solutions Recovery and its owner, Dave Marlon. Solutions Recovery specializes in assisting individuals on the journey to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and are celebrating their 10th year of business in Southern Nevada.
It was a great privilege to be in attendance at this event, celebrating a man and an organization dedicated to making our community safe and free from addiction.
HELP of Southern Nevada hosted its 16th annual Tea, Trends and Tranquility event, where I was honored to present a proclamation that formally recognized their dedication to helping Nevada’s homeless population.
HELP of Southern Nevada responds to the changing needs of our growing community and have recently expanded their programs and refined their service delivery systems to better serve the poor, the homeless and those in crisis who come to us as a place of last resort.
As part of my work in the legislature, I sponsored a bill that reduced regulations on training institutions that provide valuable job skills to locals. I toured one of these institutions that specializes in training students on becoming make up artists for the stage and screen, L Makeup Institute. I was proud to present them with a certification of recognition for their efforts in providing skills needed for Nevadans to contribute to the economy and for leading the way to a state government that encourages business growth and development.
Their mission is to discover, educate, develop and place the best makeup artist and special makeup effects talent. L Makeup Institute is focused on creating the professionals of tomorrow while strengthening the skills of today’s working makeup artist.
Please make sure you add to your calendar my next “Coffee with Constituents” event on Saturday, October 10th at 10:00 AM at Rachel’s Kitchen in the Trails. While I always look forward to these unique opportunities to meet with fellow District 6 constituents, you know that you can write, call or e-mail me at anytime to discuss the issues facing our neighborhoods, communities and state.
For instance, I am available to discuss possible neighborhood watch meetings with Metro for those who want to participate due to the recent crime in our community.
