U.S. Senate, Nevada
Jacky Rosen has lived in Nevada for nearly 40 years. She is the granddaughter of immigrants and grew up in a working class family. The first in her family to graduate from college, Jacky worked two jobs and took out student loans to make ends meet. She waited tables, including at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and was a proud member of Culinary Workers Union Local 226.
When Jacky started her career as a computer programmer and software developer, she worked as a banquet waitress on the weekends to pay her bills. She broke barriers in the male-dominated tech industry, working for major companies in Nevada. Later, Jacky stepped away from her career to take care of her parents and in-laws as they got older and had health issues.
As the former President of Congregation Ner Tamid, the state’s largest synagogue, Jacky led a team to construct one of the largest solar arrays in Henderson through a public-private partnership. The solar investment cut the synagogue’s energy bills by up to 70 percent. Now, as Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District representative, Jacky continues to stand by her environmental values while simultaneously championing a host of progressive ideals.
Jacky is running for U.S. Senate in Nevada against a conservative incumbent who has voted with Trump’s agenda 96 percent of the time. She will advance progressive values in the Senate and reverse the conservative trends that have dominated Senate politics over the past two years. She is fully committed to the values of fighting wealth and income inequality and building an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. If elected to the Senate, Jacky will be a strong advocate for reducing gun violence, raising the minimum wage, or ensuring everyone has access to quality healthcare. Jacky is running a campaign that is centered on putting the people of Nevada first and making sure that everyone has a seat at the table.
