Shea Backus


"I’m married to a union worker. My husband is a pilot. I see the benefits of organized labor every day. And as a small business owner myself, it’s important to me to provide a livable wage, affordable health insurance, and other benefits for our employees. Not because those things are required by law—they aren’t, as the Nevada laws are written—but we do because those are our values. " -Shea Backus

Shea is excited to be running for re-election to continue serving Assembly District 37.  Shea wants to fight the good fight: for Nevadan children so that they benefit from a solid education, for Nevadans to continue to thrive from economic growth and clean energy, and for Nevadans to have access to affordable preventative and diagnostic health care.
