Natha Anderson, State Assembly Member for District 30

“Thank you for electing me! I’m ran because I wanted to help make our schools stronger – that’s my background and expertise. I know there are many other issues facing our community, from healthcare to housing, and from economic to environmental. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and working on all these issues during the 2021 session.”

Meet Natha

I’m a second-generation Nevadan and a fourth-generation teacher. After earning degrees in English and Education from the University of Nevada, I began my teaching career at Reed High School (my alma mater!). After, I moved on to teach at Vaughn Middle School and then was part of opening North Valleys High School.

I am an advocate for teachers and schools. Currently, I serve as the president of the Washoe Education Association (commonly referred to as the “teachers union”). Previously, I served as a director of the National Education Association and board member of the Nevada State Education Association. Furthermore, I also serve on the Board of Directors for Truckee Meadows Tomorrow and WCSD Education Alliance.

For the past two decades, I have advocated for public education. At the state legislature, I’ve pushed for more funding for schools and all educators (not just teachers). There, I was a strong advocate for WC-1 in 2016, which was the ballot measure to build and repair schools. I’m ready to take my advocacy to the next level and appreciate your support. My name is Natha Anderson, and I am your State Assembly Representative for District 30.
