Welcome to the website of 2016 US Senate candidate and Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers.
Beers spent ten years representing Southern Nevadans in Carson City four months every two years (where legislators from the private-sector are paid less than minimum wage) from 1998 to 2008. There, he developed a reputation as a steadying force on government finance and a fierce champion of citizen’s rights and economic freedom. Beers ran for Governor in 2006, finishing second in the 5-way Republican primary (finishing ahead of the Lt. Governor) and was awarded “Legislator of the Year” at the 34th annual meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council in Philadelphia (July 2007). He was not re-elected in 2008.
In 2009, Beers took over a troubled CPA practice that was far out of compliance with federal regulations, with former Nevada State Treasurer Bob Seale. In 2012, and after some long hours, the practice was back into regulatory compliance and thrives even today. Upon election to the Las Vegas City Council, Beers retired and sold most of his ownership to a sharp team of Deloitte alumni).
in 2012, Beers was elected to fill the unexpired term on the Las Vegas City Council of now-Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson. who had just been appointed DA. In 2013, Beers was elected to a full four year term with a city-high 76.3% of the vote, and he works at this job full-time.
As Councilman, Beers also sits on the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition, Southern Nevada Health District Board, Debt Commission, and both the State and Local Workforce Investment Boards.
He has two grown children and has been married to his wife Sarah for more than 30 years.
Beers plays the bass most recently, but has played the banjo steady for most of the past ten years. He is a lifelong musician.
