Working to Protect Nevada Families

TERESA BENITEZ-THOMPSON

Since I was a young woman I have been passionate about working with families, and I have consistently advocated for their needs. I have worked with low-income families, foster and adoptive families, and in my current position as a hospice social worker I have worked with families who have a member facing a terminal diagnosis.

Working with families in Nevada has taught me many things. Most important, I have learned that Nevada’s families are struggling. They are struggling financially, and they are constantly worrying about losing their jobs. They are attempting to deal with high medical costs, having to make tough decisions, having to choose between quality care and affordable care. They worry about their children’s educational well-being, and they want to send their kids to college.

So many of Nevada’s families remind me of my own: hard-working families, constantly faced with hopes and challenges. My own family has struggled and triumphed, and I feel compelled to take my advocacy to the next level. As the Majority Leader of the Nevada State Assembly, I will do all I can to help and protect Nevada’s families.

I have been checking out presidential candidates. I want to make the best decision I can when Caucus day comes. I am checking out @TomSteyer today. Son Sam is speaking now https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1BdGYeZyVozGX

So excited to be at the campaign kickoff for my friend @Nv18Venicia. She’s been fighting to protect consumers for years and will be an excellent addition to #nvleg

In an age where public service is increasingly challenging, it’s been refreshing to work with such a servant who’s done so with class, passion and love of Nevada. We’ll certainly miss Brin in the executive branch but deeply appreciate what he’s done for our Gov and for Nevada! https://twitter.com/govsisolak/status/1220395219285229568

.@CCSD trustees approved the naming of the new Tyrone Thompson Elementary School to be built in the southwest part of the valley. We can’t think of a more appropriate way to honor our dear friend. http://ow.ly/2t7G50xWzK5
