Community is about roots and for Max Carter those roots run deep. It’s something that he was born into. The grandson of a railroad pioneer Max is a third generation Las Vegan. He knows the Las Vegas valley because it formed him. He knows this valley because he helped build it. He knows this valley because he invested his time and energy into building its future.
Building that future has taken many forms - Max made a career out of negotiating contracts to benefit local workers. As a 30 year member of IBEW Local 357 he was responsible for the negotiations that lead to the development of the Copper Mountain Solar Fields. Hundreds of jobs utilizing local labor and offering good wages and benefits were the result. Working with the Moapa Paiute elders he advocated for and negotiated worksite agreements to utilize locally sourced labor from their community with real benefits and health care - more good paying jobs with benefits while also providing renewable energy to the valley.
Max knows that the community is about more than jobs and security - building community is about service to that community. He served on the Civilil Service Board overseeing the Human Resources Department of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department from 2007 until 2019. He began serving on the Sunrise Manor Town Board in 2017 and from 2019-2021 he served as chairman - volunteering his time to make his community a better place. He continues to serve the town of Sunrise Manor as a Town Board member making sure that the voices from his town are heard.
WHY I'M RUNNING
I believe in serving my community and my state. For more than 30 years, I’ve been a member of IBEW 357 - building our economy, raising a family and protecting my fellow union brothers and sisters.
Now, I’m running for the legislature to bring service and advocacy that our community and our families need to the state legislature.
