LAS VEGAS —Republican Adam Cegavske, an educator in the Clark County School District, has announced his candidacy for Assembly District 35, representing Churchill, Pershing, Lander, Eureka and White Pine counties.
Cegavske says he is running to improve public education by giving students more options when they graduate high school.
“I can offer a tremendous amount of insight in regards to the changes that need to be implemented within the education system of Nevada,” Cegavske in a press release. “We need to give our students more options when they graduate high school. We need to prepare them for more than post secondary education by offering them skills and training to increase employability in Las Vegas.”
Cegavske currently teaches government in the Clark County School District and coaches lacrosse. He is also very involved in Las Vegas, supporting local organizations and coaching youth sports.
Cegavske says he will also focus on driving economic growth in Nevada by encouraging small and large business to consider moving to Nevada thus creating new jobs.
Cegavske is endorsed by both of the Assembly incumbents of the district, Scott Hammond (R-Las Vegas) and Lynn Stewart (R-Las Vegas) as well as Assemblyman John Hambrick (R-Las Vegas).
Cegavske was born and raised in Las Vegas. After graduating from Bonanza High School, he earned a bachelor of science degree in secondary education and political science from the University of Nevada.
