All Four Nevada Teamster Locals Endorse Kate Marshall for Lieutenant Governor

RENO, NV – This morning, former two-term State Treasurer and candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Kate Marshall, announced the endorsement of Teamster Locals 14, 533, 631, and 986.

“Both my dad and granddad were Teamsters,” Marshall said. “I’ve seen, firsthand, the hard work and sacrifice these men and women go through on a daily basis. They are the backbone of their families and the Nevada economy. I am so proud to have their support. This one is personal.”

Larry Griffith, Secretary Treasurer of Teamster Local 14 added, “Now, more than ever, Nevadans need strong leadership in Carson City. Kate Marshall has a proven track record of bringing people from both parties together to help Nevada working families. That’s why we’re proud to support Kate in her race to become our next Lieutenant Governor.”

International Brotherhood of Teamsters Locals 14, 533, 631, and 986 represent all four Teamster Locals in Nevada.

Kate Marshall is running for Lieutenant Governor to level the playing field for all Nevada families. Marshall served as State Treasurer from 2006-2014, having twice successfully won statewide elections. During her term as State Treasurer, she has initiated several innovative programs to help Nevada families save for their children’s future higher education, including launching the Nevada College Kick Start Program, a unique program that deposits $50 into college savings accounts for every kindergartner in Nevada, using no taxpayer funds. She also, as Treasurer, successfully sponsored a bill to establish the State of Nevada’s first private equity investment fund, whose goal is to help K-12 education funding while also creating jobs in our state.

Prior to being elected Treasurer, Marshall served in the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division.  Marshall then served as the Senior Deputy Attorney General for Nevada, working to prevent price gouging at the gas pump, and protecting Nevada small businesses. Marshall, a mother of two daughters, resides with her husband in Reno, Nevada.
