Lesley Cohen


Lesley is running because she knows Henderson families are worried about how they’re going to pay for college, if they’ll be able to get a small business going, or if they’ll be able to save enough for retirement. Lesley has worked to protect homeowners and connect constituents to much needed services in the community and wants to ensure that our state government is effective and efficient, because she knows that our government works for the people – not the other way around.

  • Protecting Working Nevadans: Cohen voted to protect Nevada's domestic workers when she helped pass a bill ensuring fair overtime compensation & regulating working conditions. (SB 232 5/26/17)

  • Investing In Our Children: Cohen believes every child deserves access to quality public education. She will invest more in our schools, ensuring no child is forgotten and every teacher is fairly compensated. (The Nevada Independent, 1/21/17)

  • Strengthening Working Families: Cohen knows that if you work a full-time job, you should earn a wage you can sustain a family on. That's why she will fight to increase wages, invest in our workforce and ensure economic stability for Nevada's working families. (The Nevada Independent, 1/21/17)
