Richard "Tick" Segerblom
Tick Segerblom is a third generation Nevadan born in Boulder City. He represented Las Vegas in the Nevada Assembly from 2007 to 2013 and as a State Senator from 2013 to 2017, earning a reputation quickly as a staunch Progressive on issues like equal rights and marijuana legalization. Tick’s mother also served in the Nevada Assembly, and his grandmother and great grandfather were in the legislature too, making him a fourth generation Nevada state representative. Now he is running for a seat on the Clark County Commission as a Progressive Democrat concerned with quality of life in Las Vegas. In addition to working as a lawyer, for years Tick has focused on improving opportunities and services for people in Southern Nevada. He believes Clark County should plan more deliberately for the kind of metropolis it wants to be in ten years. Ensuring that economic growth coincides with investments in education and better living standards—nice parks, sustainable building, adequate law enforcement and social services, public transit and museums—are his goals. He aims to direct government to improve residents’ daily lives and consider our environmental challenges, while also nurturing new industries like tech and marijuana sales, in addition to the tourism sector.
