April Becker and her husband

Putting people first — it's been a guiding principle for April Becker.

Las Vegas is a special and unique place; it's a blue-collar town where you can work hard, make a decent wage, and build a better life for your family. It's why April is so driven to give back to the community because as a working mom she was able to earn a decent living and put herself through college and then law school.

As a top-rated business litigator, April went to work helping the underdog and providing hundreds of hours of free, pro-bono legal aid to individuals who couldn't afford counsel. Her work and dedication earned her recognition from her peers, but the results she achieved for victims is what matters the most to April.

The drive to help others led to April serving in multiple volunteer positions at The Meadows School and, in 2014, she was elected to serve on The Board of Trustees. She also proudly serves as a member of the UNLV Libraries Advisory Board.

Now, she's taking that same drive to serving us on the Clark County Commission. Our government works best when officials put people first, not politics. That is April's promise to you, that she'll always do what is right for our community, putting you first and not the partisan politics that have driven a wedge between us.

April and her husband, Matt, have also raised their three children to have the same work ethic and are now proud grandparents. In her spare time, April enjoys fishing, hiking Mt. Charleston and Red Rock, community involvement, and spending time with her family.
