The Sacco family came to this country from Italy and landed in Boston, MA. We moved to Las Vegas in 1994 and have been residents ever since. Mom and Dad were in the restaurant business for more than 30 years. Growing up in a small family business atmosphere and working in my folks' restaurants taught me fair and honest business ethics and family values.
Caring deeply about economic inequality, I have a proven record of service to the community- especially the poor and needy. Traveling around the country when I was a young activist, we collectively shared food with people in cities across the nation including Las Vegas, Boston, New York City, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
During the current Presidential Election, I participated in all three stages of the Democratic Primary in Nevada- caucus, county and state conventions. I was a precinct captain and also sat on the Clark County Dems Platform Committee. In July I traveled to Philadelphia as an Elected National Delegate for Bernie Sanders, representing Congressional District 1 in NV. It was a thrilling experience, despite the fact our candidate was not ultimately successful.
I am obdviously deeply interested in politics on all levels, from local to international. It would be an honor and a privilege to continue building the Progressive Coalitions necessary to make our community stronger. Thank you.
