Natha Anderson, State Assembly Member for District 30
“It is an honor to represent Assembly District 30. During the 2021 session, we were able to make positive changes for Nevadans in numerous areas including healthcare, education, economic development, and the environment. I look forward to continuing these discussions as your Assemblymember.“
~ Natha Anderson
I am 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 today I continue to teach at North Valleys High School.
As a more than 25 year educator I have seen some serious changes in my profession. The increase of class sizes, the increase of standardize testing and a decrease in resources. What has been a constant – the enthusiasm, excitement and energy generated in the classroom. Our students are bright, inquisitive and curious. They give us hope for the future. We need to continue to have safe classrooms and schools where students are able to think for themselves, question, analyze and collaborate to prepare for their future. This was one of the reasons why I was a very active participant in the 2016 WC-1 campaign.
For past two decades, I have advocated for public education through my leadership positions in the Washoe Education , the Nevada State Education Association and National Education Association, Truckee Meadows Tomorrow and WCSD Education Alliance. I have also been active in other community organizations including Northern Nevada International Center the Women’s Lobby.
In 2020 I was elected to serve the constituents of Assembly District 30. I served on Government Affairs, Natural Resources and Revenue committees. Here are just a few of the bills that I was proud to support:
- AB495 – Imposes a 1% excise tax on mining revenue in the state which is to be reinvested in Nevada schools.
- AB 321 – Expanded access to the mail-in ballots and improved the timeline for clerks and registrars to count mail-in ballots
- AB 262 – Waives registration fees for Native American students who are a member or descendant of a federally recognized Indian tribe in Nevada
- SB 420 – Providing an affordable public option for health insurance for Nevada families and expands Medicaid services for pregnant women
In order to build upon this important work and continue to improve the lives of Nevada families, I kindly ask for your support as I seek a second term as your Assemblymember.
