RENO, Nev. (September 22, 2020) – Local and tenured attorney, Kathleen Sigurdson, is running for the Second Judicial District Court of Nevada, Department 10, and just secured the endorsement of the Culinary Workers Union Local 226. The Culinary Union 226 comprises 60,000 workers in food and drink and casino establishments in both Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada.
Sigurdson is running based on a self-expressed desire to add further representation to the Washoe County court system and give back to her community.
“I knew at an early age I wanted to dedicate my life to helping others,” said Sigurdson. “As soon as I entered the legal field I knew serving as a judge would be a powerful way to ensure I could fulfill that calling. Additionally, I view serving as a judge for Department 10 as a means to further advance parity in our region and would be humbled to take this responsibility should Washoe County citizens agree.”
While the race for Second Judicial District Court of Nevada is a nonpartisan race, Sigurdson was recently interviewed by the Democratic Party regarding her motivations for running, the recording for which can be viewed here.
