Supervisor Livermore files for Assembly District 40 seat

Carson City Supervisor Pete Livermore, whose term expires at the end of this year, filed Friday for the state Assembly District 40 seat being vacated by Bonnie Parnell.

Livermore, a Republican, said he believes he has a great deal to offer the Legislature.

“I have been a champion for the people of Carson City for many years, and I want to continue to serve them. I want to make sure that we continue to be frugal with the public’s money, and I want to make sure the state doesn’t balance its needs on the backs of local government.”

Livermore, 68, has lived in Carson City since 1960. He was a small business operator from 1971 through 2004.

“I still need to wrap my head around all the legislative issues, but as a supervisor, I’ve always been involved in all the legislative packages of the city, and I think my background in government gives me an edge,” he said.

Livermore and his wife Laurie have been married for 48 years. They have two sons, a daughter and four grandchildren.

Amy Renee Clemens, also a Republican, has filed for the Assembly District 40 seat, as has Carson City Supervisor Robin Williamson, a Democrat.
