Small business owner to run for county commission

By ThisIsReno


LuceyWith a goal of making government more efficient, small business owner Bob Lucey announced today that he is running for Washoe County Commission, District 2, the seat being vacated by Dave Humke who is term-limited.

“Our county must continually strive for increased efficiency and forward planning,” said Lucey. “Every business in this country is working towards these traits, and every business owner knows this is what we need for success and growth.”

This is Lucey’s first run for office. Lucey is a 5 generation who was born and raised in Northern Nevada. He attended Galena High School and the University of Nevada, Reno.

In 2006, Lucey jumped into Washoe County’s real estate industry, helping Nevadans find homes, and then specializing in commercial real estate. Since then, Lucey followed his heart and opened Advanced Pet Care in July 2011 in one of his vacant properties. Combining his business experience and love of animals, his veterinary clinic is one of the highest rated in Washoe County and currently employs 30 people.

“As a lifelong Nevadan, I know our community’s greatest asset is its people,” said Lucey. “As county commissioner, I’ll be committed to supporting our local small businesses and cutting the bureaucratic red tape so that more entrepreneurs like me can create jobs and help bring back the economy of Washoe County and Nevada.”
