Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow filed today for reelection to her Commission District G seat.
"I took office with specific goals in mind: revitalize our neighborhoods and help create more job opportunities for Southern Nevadans," Scow said. "We have made tremendous strides on both those fronts, and I want to continue that work for another term."
District G includes parts of Henderson, Boulder City and the southeastern parts of the valley. It also includes McCarran Airport and the surrounding areas.
"It is an extremely diverse district, with small communities like Boulder City and urban areas like Paradise township," Scow said. "Each area has its own unique challenges, and I think we have been able to meet those challenges and help the residents succeed and make their community better."
Scow pointed to neighborhood projects like the renovation and revitalization of Sunset Park, a key community recreational area for District G residents and the entire Las Vegas Valley.
"I’ve worked very hard to repair and update the parks and recreational areas in our district," Scow said. "These are important areas where our residents come together and enjoy time with their families. They need to have clean and modern equipment for children to play, as well as be safe and provide people the chance to relax."
Scow also takes great pride in being a mother to nine children and the grandmother of 35. She was named "2009 Nevada Mother of the Year" by American Mothers, Inc. Before being elected to the County Commission, she was Chairman and three-term member of the Clark County School Board of Trustees.
