Welcome to the website of 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). Registered Republican, he was not re-elected in the 2008 Democratic election sweep.
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 is the Chairman in 2016 of the Southern Nevada Health District Board, and also represents the city on the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition, and the Local Workforce Investment Board LEO Consortium. He recently was elected Chair of the Mayor and City Council’s Audit Committee at City Hall.
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.
