Steven Brooks For Assembly District 17
-- Nevada State Assemblyman Steven Brooks has filed for the 2012 Election, seeking the Democratic nomination in Assembly District 17, which was recently redrawn and includes northeast North Las Vegas.
“I’m filing to earn the privilege to continue serving the people of Nevada,” said Brooks, who was first elected to the Nevada Assembly in 2010 “There is still a lot of work that needs to be done to improve education, workers’ rights, and job opportunities for Nevada’s working families. We look forward to that challenge.”
During the 2011 Legislature, Brooks supported important measures that created jobs, supported energy independence, and streamlined regulations.
While serving on the Transportation, Judiciary and Health and Human Services committees, Brooks helped pass bills promoting green energy while protecting consumers (Assembly Bill 441), providing employment opportunities for Nevada residents on state-funded pubic works projects (AB 144) and a bill that ensured Nevada received its fair share of funding for vital Health and Human Services and energy programs (AB 172).
Brooks has long been active in the community, including leading a turnaround at the Las Vegas Urban League. He serves on the Community Land Trust Board, Hispanic Art Museum Board and is a founding member of the Southern Nevada Enterprise Community Board.
Brooks is a former Board member of the Community Partners for Better Health and assisted in its successful effort to have the Legislature create a state Minority Health Department.
