Dondero was the first woman ever elected to the Clark County Commission
Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement today on the passing of Thalia Dondero, the first woman ever elected to the Clark County Commission:
“Thalia Dondero shattered one of our biggest glass ceilings here in Nevada when she was elected to the Clark County Commission. She was a trailblazer who inspired even more women to get involved in politics and paved the way for them to run for office. Thalia was a public servant through and through who spent her life working to make Southern Nevada a better place to live and raise a family, whether it was improving our higher education system, growing outdoor recreation opportunities or expanding tourism. She had a deep commitment to helping our kids succeed.
“Thalia was a good friend and one of the most generous people in our state, and I’m deeply saddened by her loss. We extend our deepest sympathies to her family today as we mourn the loss of a dedicated community leader.”
