Southern Nevada public relations executive Hilarie Grey has filed to run in the special election for Ward 2 of the Las Vegas City Council.

Grey “got her start in community development at the City of Las Vegas,” according to a campaign statement. She subsequently worked in community relations and communications for Clark County, McCarran International Airport, UNLV, Touro University Nevada, the Nevada Cancer Institute, AARP and Allegiant.

Grey was also a communications staffer for Nevada Democrats, and in 2007-2008 worked communications in Nevada for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

In her statement Grey said on the council she would work to “make local government more accessible and transparent… Most importantly, I want to protect neighborhoods from over-growth and poor planning.”

A special election is being held in Ward 2 because councilman Steve Seroka resigned earlier this month. It will be held on the same day as regularly scheduled municipal elections, June 11.

Other candidates filing in Ward 2 include former Republican Assemblywomen Victoria Seaman and Valerie Weber.
