Hunter Cain, a dedicated foster parent and advocate for at-risk youth, has announced his candidacy for the Clark County Commission. Cain became licensed in 2016 and has transformed the lives of more than 35 foster youth, while becoming a forever parent to 11 of them.
Motivated by his personal experiences with the at-risk and foster communities, he has dedicated years to advocating for better resources, services, and opportunities for these children and teenagers. These efforts led to his appointment in 2022 to the Clark County Children’s Mental Health Consortium as the Foster Parent Representative.
Notably, Hunter hopes to be the first combat veteran to serve on the Clark County Commission in over 30 years. His military skills were reflected in his actions during the UNLV mass shooting were multiple media outlets reported about his defense of fellow classmates in the Student Union.
Recognizing the importance of this role in shaping the future of the county, Hunter has responded to the urging of community leaders and party leadership on both sides of the aisle to direct his efforts towards the Clark County Commission. To which he humbly accepted the call to serve.
Hunter, who ran in 2020 but lost to Commissioner Ross Miller, when elected, plans to focus on crucial issues such as affordable housing, infrastructure development, and improving access to essential services for all residents of Clark County. On a platform of transparency, accountability, and collaboration, he also highlights the need for a Clark County Veterans Department and a critical need for an in-depth review of the foster care program under the Department of Family Services.
“I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve the people of Clark County,” said Hunter Cain. “As a combat veteran, CCSD Educator, and foster parent, I have witnessed firsthand the power of resilience, compassion, and determination. I believe in the strength of our community and its potential for positive change. Together, we can build a better future for all.”
Throughout his campaign, Cain will promise to emphasize the importance of comprehensive support systems for residence.
