Victoria Seaman is driven by a desire to make a difference. She sees a problem and she is immediately seeking a solution. This internal drive has served her well for more than 30 years as a mother, wife, businesswoman, elected leader, and community advocate.
Her strong entrepreneurial nature and keen eye for detail are leadership attributes that have afforded her success in both business and politics. Before entering public service, she created and managed day spas, and successfully designed and manufactured a high-end product line for Estheticians. She successfully sold those businesses in 2004 and 2009.
As a community advocate, Victoria spent 6 years advocating for conservative issues such as lower taxes, less government regulations for small business owners, and school choice. In this time period, she also gave many volunteer hours to her church and not-for-profits.
In 2014, armed with a reputation as a hard-working conservative, she decided to run for Nevada State Assembly. Faced with a blue district, no one believed she could win a seat in the district where she lived. It was a 12% Democrat-leaning district that had never been held by a Republican. With a lot of hard work walking the district more than 3 times, she became the first Republican Latina elected to the Nevada Legislature in state history. She represented Assembly District 34, served as Assistant Majority Whip, and was the Vice Chair of the Commerce and Labor Committee.
Victoria passed several instrumental bills including one that stopped the Cosmetology Board from shutting down a business due to a ridiculous law that wouldn’t allow the teaching of special effects make-up without teaching all other forms of cosmetology, one that protected homeowners against squatters, and another that increased safeguards against guardianship abuse.
Victoria proudly upheld campaign promises to reform education while opposing new taxes on Nevada’s families and job-providers. In 2015, she was one of only 13 legislators to vote against the largest tax (commerce) increase in Nevada history. She was only one of a few that voted against a resolution to give a pathway to citizenship for illegals.
Knowing that she can do more, Victoria is running for Congress in District 3. She knows that we need a trusted conservative voice in Washington DC. She has the unique perspective of a small business owner, and experience with Nevada state government; no other candidate has this valuable knowledge base.
Victoria is currently a Business Broker with First Choice Business Brokers in Las Vegas where she helps others buy and sell businesses. She is the proud mother of Tatiana who graduated UCLA in 2016, moved back home, and now works in Real Estate. Her story about Tatiana’s 21 surgeries as an infant and subsequent struggle through medical bankruptcy in 1993 are detailed here: The Choice I Made for Love.
Victoria and her husband, John, love animals, and share their home with their three dogs: Pierre, Coco and Jacque.
