Wendy will be the first openly LGBTQ member of Sparks City Council
Wendy Stolyarov is a progressive Democrat who is passionate about people and good policy. She was born in West Texas, but she got to Northern Nevada as fast as she could. She’s lived in the beautiful Silver State for a decade, and aims to stay, trail-running and hiking as much of it as possible. By profession, she’s a government affairs and communications expert, working for responsible policy in Nevada on technology, workers’ rights, and more.
In 2017, Wendy worked for NARAL as a field organizer and as the Legislative Director in the Nevada Legislature for the Libertarian Party of Nevada during the 2017 Legislative Session, where she fought alongside the ACLU, the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, NARAL, and other community organizations to advocate for progressive policies that improved the lives of regular Nevadans.
