CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Republican Nevada Assemblywoman Jill Dickman has announced she'll run for re-election to the state Legislature.
The freshman lawmaker from Sparks said Monday that she enjoyed working with fellow legislators to create jobs, pass education reforms and improve public safety. She represents Assembly District 31, which leans Republican.
Dickman also announced the endorsement of Sparks Mayor Geno Martini, who called her a strong and principled advocate for the city.
Dickman is a small business owner who served on budget committees including Taxation and Ways and Means.
She voted against a $1.1 billion tax package backed by Gov. Brian Sandoval, but the measure ultimately passed with more than two-thirds support in both the Senate and Assembly.
