Hunter will be the first licensed foster parent to serve on the commission. Hunter is a single Clark County foster parent, who has devoted his life to help shelter and raise higher-level of care and at-risk youth. He has fostered ten youth ranging from 9 years old to 17 years old. In 2018, he adopted his first son and is currently fostering to adopt his second son.

Hunter will be the first combat veteran to serve on the commission in more than 20 years. He is a disabled combat veteran who spent nearly a decade in the US Army with deployments and service in Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and New Dawn.

Hunter served as Director of Community Outreach for Congresswoman Dina Titus. Over half a decade with her office, he organized over 100 community events, helped thousands of Southern Nevadans find social and mental health services and brought back more than $2 million worth of federal benefits to those he helped.

Hunter will be Clark County’s first openly LGBTQ commissioner who received his first national endorsement from the LGBTQ Victory Fund. After the repeal of don’t ask don’t tell, Hunter helped LGBTQ veterans apply to upgrade their less-than-honorable military discharges that were based on sexual preference.

Hunter will be Commission District C’s first African American commissioner. Hunter has worked to bring resources and services to the African American, Hispanic American, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI), senior, economically disadvantaged, disabled and immigrant communities.

Hunter knows the issues and challenges we face, and wants to continue to help be part of the solution. His focus is on reforming the Department of Family Services, creating a county Department of Veterans Affairs, creating affordable and homeless housing, and making major improvements to the county’s Business Advisory Council.

Hunter has innovative ideas for parks and recreational expansion, residential clean energy and Grey water systems, supporting LatinX issues, overhauling the Regional Transportation Commission, bringing light rail to Southern Nevada, building rehabilitation centers as alternative sentencing, and ensuring that Clark County’s reputation is one that believe that one wage from one job is enough to support one family.
