AARP Nevada is pleased to announce the hiring of public affairs and political veteran Jessica Padrón to serve as advocacy director.

Padrón brings 16 years of public policy experience to her new role with a passion for public service and increasing opportunities for underserved constituencies. She has expansive electoral experience, building and directing several civic engagement programs and working with diverse coalitions since 2007. During Nevada’s 80th Legislative session, she managed Senator Spearman’s legislative after running a slate of nonpartisan judicial campaigns in the 2018 campaign cycle which resulted in a Female majority in the Nevada Supreme Court for the first time in history.

Padrón is known for her ability to build relationships and create coalitions with allied organizations and stakeholders, something that will suit her well at AARP Nevada.

“We are extending a warm welcome from our entire team here at AARP Nevada,” said AARP Nevada State Director Maria Moore. “We are doing some exciting work here and look forward to what we will accomplish together.”

Padrón is a bilingual speaker and has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
