Making Nevada the best place to work, live, and raise a family has always been my vision for our state. That means maintaining a strong business environment, protecting individual liberties, and building an excellent education system. If you believe in these same core principles, I invite you to join me to help me make policies that move Nevada in a direction we can all be proud of.

Senator Ben Kieckhefer

The people of Washoe County and Carson City first elected Ben to the State Senate in November 2010 and re-elected him in 2014 and 2018. Before seeking public office, Ben covered the Legislature as a reporter, served as Communications Director to Nevada’s governor and worked in Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services. Ben has served in caucus leadership as the assistant majority and minority leader of the Senate, as well as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Ben and his wife April are raising their four children in south Reno.
I believe government should always err on the side of preserving citizens’ rights and liberties. The benefits of any legislation must be weighed against the harm of putting more restrictions on the people.

Ben Kieckhefer
