Today, (R) Las Vegas City Councilwoman Victoria Seaman is rumored to announce a bid for mayor of the City of Las Vegas. Councilwoman Seaman is holding a press conference today at 5:30 pm at the veterans memorial.

Seaman was elected to the City Council from Ward 2 four years ago. Prior to that, she was a Nevada Assemblywoman for District 34, where she helped pass laws banning vacant home squatters and fighting tax increases. She established herself as a conservative Republican, supporting small businesses and law enforcement. Seaman was one of the first elected officials to endorse Sheriff Lombardo for governor.

Seaman is the only Republican to have announced so far. She will face off against former Congresswoman (D) Shelley Berkley, along with (D) Cedric Crear, city councilor for Ward 5, and Kara Jenkins, administrator of the Nevada Equal Rights Commission.

Berkley has been out of politics since 2012, when she was convicted by the U.S. House Ethics Committee.

Here is the Congressional Ethics Report issued December 2012:

The Committee voted unanimously to release this public Report
finding that Representative Berkley violated House Rules and other laws, rules and standards of conduct governing conflicts of interest where she permitted her office to take official action specifically on behalf of her husband’s practice pertaining to monetary
collections by her husband’s practice from government agencies.

The Committee agrees with the findings and the conclusions of the Investigative Subcommittee, which were reached following a thorough five-month investigation. Specifically, the Committee finds that Representative Berkley violated House rules and other laws, rules, and standards of conduct by improperly using her official position for her beneficial interest by permitting her office to take official action specifically on behalf of her husband’s medical practice.
