YERINGTON — Assemblyman Tom Grady (R- Yerington) announced Monday his candidacy for re-election to the Nevada State Assembly District 38, representing Lyon and Storey counties and portions of Carson City and Churchill counties.
Grady said he first intends to tackle funding for the state.
“Funding affects schools, social issues and everything we do,” Grady said in a release. “I know we can all work smarter to properly prioritize. We need to balance the budget and redirect an adequate amount of the funding towards our schools.”
“My political philosophy is quite simple: listen to the people, be honest and responsible, help your constituents, and do what is best for Nevada,” Grady continued.
Grady graduated from Bishop Manogue High School in Reno, and attended the University of Nevada, Reno. He also attended Washington State Bankers School at Washington State University. He served his country for eight years in the United States Army Reserve.
Grady has served on many local and state boards as a volunteer. He served on boards under three Nevada governors. He was on the Yerington City Council from 1979 to 1981, and served as mayor of Yerington from 1981 to 1993. He spent 10 years working as executive director of the Nevada League of Cities, representing all Nevada cities.
