LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas businessman says he’s running for the Nevada Assembly.

A Democrat, Sedera serves as a commissioner for the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority. He also is a court mediator and a member of the Las Vegas Citizens Review Board for the police department.

Sedera was born in Sri Lanka and has lived in Nevada since 1995, working in real estate.
