“I look forward to continuing to serve our community and working hard to get things done. I would appreciate your vote for Clark County Commission in 2020.”
Mo has been working in his community for over three decades, serving in capacities such as chairing the PTA, sitting on Clark County Library Board, serving as an elected Assemblyman, current State Senator representing District 2, and Nevada Senate President Pro Tempore where he is fighting and advocating for Nevada families.
Senator Denis has been called “a politician who espouses principles,” by the Las Vegas Review- Journal and a politician “quickly rising”.
“I am passionate about making things better in our community and if stepping up in leadership is something that will help me accomplish this, I’ll do it,” he says.
As State Senator, Mo has taken up education, consumer rights and economic development as his key priorities, passing legislation and chairing committees to address these issues.
“Everything I do in our state’s capital is centered on improving our community and the lives of individuals and families and certainly these issues are vital in their success,” he says. “I want to leave something positive for them.”
In his early years, Mo dedicated his time to self improvement. He focused on and completed all the merit badges and requirements to earn the title Eagle Scout, which he says taught him valuable leadership skills that he still puts in practice today.
Mo got his start in civic engagement when his daughter started her first year of school. Mo became involved in the PTA, eventually became President of the local board. He was also appointed to serve on and chair the Library Board. During his tenure eleven new libraries were built and opened.
Mo was soon appointed to serve on the board of the Community Development Block Grants and was appointed to the Commission of Education Technology by Governor Miller. Governor Guinn later appointed him to chair the Commission.
After redistricting, Mo had a failed run for a newly formed assembly seat in 2002. During that same period, Mo and Susan had their fifth child. In 2004, the seat opened again and Mo won by a landslide. He served as Assemblyman for six years before running unopposed for State Senate in 2010.
