I’m Jeff Proffitt and I believe our kids should come first. That’s why I’m running for Clark County School District Board of Trustees, District B.
I am a native Las Vegan and business manager of Sheet Metal Workers Local 88 in District B. My roots in Southern Nevada run deep. I was born at Women’s Hospital and attended CCSD schools, graduating from Eldorado High School in 1992. As a resident of Moapa Valley, I support and understand the challenges of rural and urban schools alike. My wife is a CCSD special education teacher, and our three children are all current or former students of District B.
Prior to my current position, I served as training director for the Sheet Metal Workers Local 88 Training Center, a comprehensive four-year educational apprenticeship program that provides full-ride scholarships to its students and produces job-ready workers skilled in math, computers and spatial relationships. Our graduates have helped build and repair Las Vegas from the ground up. With my construction background, I can help identify and eliminate waste in our school system.
