Boyd Alumnus Edgar Flores Featured in Las Vegas Review-Journal

On March 20, Boyd alumnus Edgar Flores '12 was featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article Newcomer Flores wins Las Vegas Assembly race without having to campaign.

The article reads, "The 27-year-old Democrat, first-year attorney and first-time candidate is Nevada’s newest state lawmaker. All he had to do was file to run for Assembly District 28, which Lucy Flores is giving up to run for lieutenant governor. No other candidate filed for the seat, handing Edgar Flores — no relation — an easy victory. His name will still appear on the Nov. 4 general election ballot; and if he gets even one vote, he will officially become an assemblyman, no fuss, no bother."

In the article, Flores said, "I’m still in awe, I suppose,” Flores said Tuesday night, vowing to walk door to door anyway to get to know his mostly Hispanic constituents better before next year’s state Legislature meets. “I feel very privileged that everything kind of fell into place. I can’t pretend I’m a perfect candidate. It’s my responsibility to prove the right thing happened."
