Office Opening Kicked Off Volunteer Day of Action
Henderson, Nev. – Jacky Rosen, who is running to represent Nevada’s open 3rd Congressional District, officially launched her first campaign office today with supporters in Henderson. The office opening helped kick off a volunteer day of action.
“Southern Nevada has been my home for more than 35 years, and it’s been an amazing place to work, raise my kids, care for my parents and volunteer and give back to this community,” said Jacky Rosen, Democratic candidate for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. “I’m running for this seat because families across Southern Nevada deserve a representative in Congress who listens to them and shares their values, not another vote for partisan dysfunction and gridlock. I will fight every day to raise incomes for working families, protect Social Security and Medicare for our seniors, seize the economic opportunity of clean energy and make higher education more affordable. I’m looking forward to hearing more about what matters most to you so I can bring your voices, your stories, and your concerns to Washington. That’s what our community deserves, and it’s what I plan to do.”
Jacky was the first member of her family to graduate from college, attending the University of Minnesota where she worked two jobs and took out student loans to make ends meet. Over summers, Jacky waitressed in Las Vegas and was a proud member of Culinary Workers Union Local 226.
After graduation, Jacky worked as a computer programmer, software developer, and designer for some of the biggest companies in Nevada including Summa Corporation, Citibank, and Southwest Gas Company. As current President of Congregation Ner Tamid in Henderson, Jacky dedicates her time to building community and helping those in need.
Jacky lives in Henderson with her husband Larry, a radiologist at the Las Vegas Veterans Hospital, and her daughter Miranda, a Nevada public school graduate now studying at Princeton University.
Democrats hold a registration advantage in Nevada’s competitive open 3rd Congressional District, which President Obama won in 2008 and 2012. The district covers Southern Nevada, including portions of Las Vegas and Henderson.
