Nevada, SEIU 1107
Clark County Commissioner
County Commissioner District D
William McCurdy grew up in a family surrounded by a legacy of community activism, but after dropping out of school to support his family at an early age, his life could have gone in a very different direction. However, William instead worked to get into the College of Southern Nevada where he earned an Associate’s degree and became Student Body President. He eventually joined SEIU as an organizer, working his way up to become the state Political Director.
Then, at 28 years old, he was elected Chairman of the Nevada State Democratic Party, the party’s first African American Chair and the youngest Chair in modern party history. Passionate about education, William earned his Bachelor’s degree and is on track to law school, all while serving as an active State Assemblyman, board member of several nonprofit and advocacy organizations, and was elected to the Clark County Commission in 2020. He is the proud father of two sons.
Why I'm Serving
“We’ve made great progress for our community: from reforming our criminal justice system to enhancing economic development and even passing legislation to increase access to fresh food grocers in our neighborhood. I am now looking to take this progress to the Clark County Commission to continue creating jobs, strengthening public safety, increasing access to healthcare, and improving our schools for the residents of District D.”
