Meet Steven Horsford
Steven Horsford was born and raised in Las Vegas and has dedicated his life to advocating for his community. As the son of a single mother, he worked multiple jobs to help support his younger siblings and was the first in his family to attend college. He later led the state's largest career training program at Nevada's Culinary Training Academy, where he helped train and place thousands of Nevadans in good-paying jobs in the hospitality and other in-demand industries. He then later founded his own job-training company.
After some time overseeing the Culinary Training Academy, he won a seat in the Nevada Senate and quickly rose to the rank of Senate Majority Leader. While in the Senate, he spearheaded the effort to work across party lines to solve the state’s worst budget crisis.
In 2012, Steven won his election in the newly created 4th Congressional District. He never forgets where he comes from, which is why he is focused on bringing down the cost of living and creating opportunities for all of us.
That's why he passed legislation to make housing more affordable, bring down the cost of prescription drugs, and give Nevada families a tax cut while securing funding for Nevada's schools and investing in job-training programs.
During the pandemic, Steven delivered relief checks to working families and assistance to Nevada's small businesses, while helping thousands of Nevadans stay in their homes. Now he's helped pass an infrastructure plan that creates thousands of good-paying jobs in Nevada.
