Christina Etter Roush will run for the Ward 2 seat on the Las Vegas City Council in hopes of unseating incumbent Councilman Bob Beers.
Roush, a small business owner who works in real estate, filed candidacy paperwork with the city on Wednesday.
Roush is a Las Vegas native who has lived in Ward 2 in the city’s southwestern corner, for 24 years. In a news release announcing her run for office, Roush emphasized improved public safety and economic diversification as priorities.
“We are on the cusp of becoming a World Class City, and now is the time to elect visionary leaders to bring new ideas and energy to the City Council,” she said in a statement.
Beers filed to run for re-election on Tuesday, the opening of the filing period. Retired Air Force Col. Steve Seroka has announced his intentions to challenge Beers, but has not filed his candidacy papers.
