Dylan Shaver

Dylan’s communications, political, and policy work has taken him to every corner of the Silver State. He started his political career at a young age, as a paid canvasser for a Las Vegas mayoral candidate.  He worked two sessions as staff at the Nevada legislature. As a policy aide to the Speaker of the Nevada Assembly, he managed a portfolio that included public education, Nevada’s tax structure, organized labor, and criminal justice issues.  In 2005, he established a small political consulting firm that specialized in political fundraising for candidates across the State.

Dylan spent eight years as the Vice President of the Nevada Mining Association where his role took him across the state, serving as a translator between left-leaning urban lawmakers and a very conservative rural workforce, and successfully finding commonality and compromise between the two.   In 2019, Dylan left the mining industry to become an executive with the City of Reno government where he managed a broad portfolio of Departments, personnel, and policy issues that affected the growing City.
