Noel Searles

My name is Noel Searles, and I am running for District F Trustee. I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona.  My wife and I have lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the past three years. While being relatively new to the great state of Nevada, we have planted our roots here and call Las Vegas home.

I am a member of the Clark County Republican Party Central Committee and a Republican Leadership Initiative Core Team Member. I’ve volunteered with several campaigns, the Clark County Republican Party, and the Nevada Republican Party. I was precinct captain for my precinct during the caucus in February 2016. I have continued to volunteer with the CCRCC operation’s and secretary’s teams working on post-caucus information processing and organization. This has led me to be an integral part of ensuring that the 2016 Clark County Convention would be a success.

I have varied experience with legal, medical and informational technology fields. These experiences have helped me develop tenacity, diligence, and problem-solving skills.  I will bring these skills, as well as my cooperative personality and expansive personal knowledge to the executive board to work together in uniting our party.  Furthermore, I want to ensure conservative values are upheld in my district, as well as our county, and state.

My name is Noel Searles, I’m running for Executive Board Trustee District F and I would appreciate your vote.
