Marilyn is the only candidate in the race for Senate District 8 to receive the endorsement of the Las Vegas Police Protective Association and Las Vegas Police Protective Association Civilian Employees.
She has a long history of providing local law enforcement with the resources they need to combat threats to our community.
As a former teacher and career educator, Marilyn has spent her life looking out for our kids and our families. During her time in the Nevada State Assembly, Marilyn stood up to powerful special interests to protect our kids by requiring all teachers to be fingerprinted when they are re-licensed.
In our neighborhoods and online, Nevada’s children need greater protections from dangerous criminals. That’s why Marilyn also led the fight in the Assembly to crack down on sex offenders. She also fought for stricter penalties for child predators, so they stay in jail longer.
Marilyn has a long track-record of standing up to the powerful DC gun lobby. In the State Senate, she will fight to enforce background checks for gun purchases, a ballot measure that Nevadans approved by more than 58% in Senate District 8 in 2016, but is still not being enforced by state officials. Marilyn will also fight to ban bumpstocks, which played a key role in the tragic shooting that took place in Las Vegas on 1 October, 2017.
Marilyn is a grandmother of five grandchildren, all of whom live right here our community. In the State Senate, she will fight every day to make sure the community that we live in is safe for our families.
