Former Councilman Kirk Jumps Into State Senate Race


Former Henderson City Councilman Steve Kirk, a Republican, today announced his candidacy for the Nevada State Senate in District 5, where he will challenge incumbent Democrat Shirley Breeden.

In the same district in 2010, conservative newcomer Michael Roberson unseated Democratic newcomer Joyce Woodhouse. Nearly evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, State Senate District 5 has not voted for an incumbent since re-electing Republican Ann O’Connell in 2000. Breeden took out Joe Heck in 2008, prompting Heck to run for Congress in 2010, when he defeated Dina Titus.

Kirk was elected to the Henderson City Council, representing Ward IV, from 1999 to 2011. He grew up in Henderson, graduating from Basic High School. He later graduated from Brigham Young University with a major in Design Engineering Technology. He is currently employed at Sun Valley Imaging and Technologies in Las Vegas as the General Sales Manager. Kirk has been married to his wife, Amy, for more than 30 years. They have raised five children in Henderson, in what is now Senate District 5.
