Nevada State Sen. Yvanna Cancela stepping down to join Biden administration; Sisolak, union issue statements

Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline said, “The Culinary Union is proud to have Yvanna, a former Culinary Union member, work with the incoming Biden Harris administration to protect working families. We know Yvanna cares deeply for workers and she will continue to champion issues important to Nevada.”

The union offered its congratulations on Cancela’s new position in Washington, D.C. 

“Yvanna, the former political director for the Culinary Union, led the largest political program in the state to keep Nevada blue in 2016,” Argüello-Kline said.

“She went on to be the State Senator representing District 10, where she championed historic pharmaceutical transparency legislation and was a strong advocate for workers, unions, and immigrants, all while working as the Executive Director of the Culinary Union’s affiliate, The Citizenship Project — which has helped over 18,000 Nevadans become U.S. citizens for free since it was founded in 2001,” Argüello-Kline said..
