Ms. Elisa Slider
Elisa was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her father is a self-made businessman who worked hard growing his trucking company. Her mother was born in Cuba and escaped from the oppression of the Castro dictatorship to the United States in 1961. Elisa is the oldest of six children to include two brothers and three sisters. She quickly learned the values of family and hard work as she helped her mother raise her younger siblings and worked several part time jobs. She graduated Cheyenne High School in 1998. Elisa is married to Richard Slider, a Sergeant Major in the Marine Corps Reserve, and has two children, Nicolas age fourteen and Keira age eleven. Professionally, Elisa worked as a preschool teacher and provided administrative assistance to her Father’s business out of High School. Later, she was hired by the Clark County School district as a Special Education Assistant for providing assistance to special needs children. After working there for several years, she took over ownership of her Father’s business. She reorganized the company and is currently the Co-Owner of Silver State Hay Incorporated a trucking / brokering company that provides agricultural products to the South West region of the United States with overseas shipping contracts. The conservative values of the Republican Party are a perfect alignment with Elisa’s strong family values, patriotic views, and love of our constitution. Growing up, she listened to the stories from her grandparents and elders describing the atrocities committed under a communist social regime in Cuba. At an early age, she realized that the freedoms we have in this Country should be cherished. The protection of life, the 2nd amendment, a strong military, business growth, national security and less government intrusion are the principles that make her want to take a stance with other Hispanics across this country.
