Get to Know Tony!

Tony T. Smith is running for the Nevada Senate so he can work for the people of District 18.  That is why Tony wants you to get to know him.  Scroll down to learn more!


"I was born and raised in Las Vegas. My friends and family live in Las Vegas. I experienced both public and private education in our city - attending Vegas Verdes, Our Lady of Las Vegas, and the Las Vegas Academy. I went on to graduate from CSN and UNLV. I have worked as a legal courier, in retail on Fremont Street and the Strip, as a civil servant for the DMV and the Family Courts, and as an attorney offering affordable legal services to the community. For me, home means Nevada.

Our city and State are undergoing huge economic transitions - and I want to serve our community by representing us in the Senate to fight for economic and social justice for all Nevadans. That is why I am running for the Senate - to represent the people of Senate District 18. And because I want to work for the people instead of wealthy donors, I'm relying solely on small contributions."

-Tony T. Smith
