“There will be battles to fight and hills to climb, but we are Nevadans, and we are battle-tested. We will not stop until this victory has been won. We shall overcome. We must overcome. We will overcome, because we’re stronger together.”

Spearman's History...

Patricia Spearman's courage, commitment and dedication for the rights of the people, started before becoming Senator of Nevada District 1. For 26 years, she was on the front line, serving in the Army Operations Center for the Pentagon, ascending to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and receiving the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Feeling the need to do more for her community, Patricia took on the San Marcos Independent School District Board. Within 6 months of membership and with a pledge to serve and adherence to education,  she took on the challenge of President of the School Board. It was here that she realized the challenges that parents, administrators and educators face when ensuring that every child has access to an equal and sustainable public education.

In 2008 Patricia Spearman took on the reigns to ensure Barack Obama's 12.5 point Nevada victory-the state’s largest margin of victory in two decades. Her work with the Obama campaign, her experience as a public servant and the 2008 recession prompted her need to do more.

In 2012 PatricIa Spearman filed to run for Nevada’s 1st Senate District. Her opponent a conservative incumbent stood no chance against Spearman's grassroots foundation. Her mission statement to become a voice of the people, a supporter of community groups and an ally to local leaders guaranteed her 63% victory.

I think its very important at a time like this for us to be reminded that diversity is a strength, not a weakness. Equality matters, and so does equity.

Spearman supported a constitutional amendment for marriage equality, fought to ban anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination, introduced a resolution to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, advocated equal pay for equal work, and supported an assembly bill to extend voter registration that passed both chambers of the legislature.
