For Our Candidates

Candidate Endorsement Application

We are delighted to announce the release of the 2020 Recovery PAC Candidate Endorsement Application. Every candidate for elected office is invited to apply. The details are contained in throughout this application page.

With the support of the Recovery Advocacy Project, Recovery PAC is connecting candidates to constituents who support recovery from addiction and mental health. Individuals, families, and communities have benefited from the resiliency, courage, and strength that recovery requires. We believe that public servants, like yourself, will benefit from knowing your constituents who care about recovery access and choice. More importantly, we believe our laws will be better when all of our citizens feel safe in talking about addiction and mental health. That’s why correcting stigma is our biggest priority.

In the application, you will find our 2020 platform. You will also be asked what we can do to help you serve your recovery constituents in Carson City, and our own communities. We want to work together to elevate Nevada as a place where recovery is a celebrated solution to addiction and mental health.

For some background on the Recovery Advocacy Project, please visit our website at Connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, and keep your e-mail boxes open for Recovery Advocacy Project/Recovery PAC Announcements.

Thank you for your willingness to stand for election. We know the dedication and energy you have invested into your campaign. Please submit your candidate application no later than July 15, 2020.

We look forward to working with you throughout our endorsement process this year.
