Cedric Crear has the experience - and vision – to renew and revitalize Ward 5. His proven devotion to Nevada families has earned Cedric statewide respect as a University Regent. Now, he’s ready to bring that same energy and activism to City Hall.
Safe and Sound
A champion for fiscal accountability and public safety, Cedric has received praise for cutting waste while also providing law enforcement with enhanced tools and personnel to keep our children safe. At the same time, we need leaders who will hold police accountable and demand equal treatment and unwavering respect for the rights of citizens. Cedric Crear is the right person - at just the right time - to strike that balance and reduce crime in Ward 5.
Public safety and sound budgeting will always be the top priorities. But, there’s so much more City Hall can offer the residents of Ward 5. Cedric will bring the voice of an experienced educator to the City’s efforts to bolster K-12 and Early Childhood programs, combined with enhanced after-school opportunities.
These programs have proven successful nationwide and will help challenged communities keep up with more affluent suburbs. More importantly, we must provide activities that serve to keep our kids actively and constructively engaged – and off the streets.
Reinvesting in the Community, Creating Good Jobs
Cedric has a real plan that will bring lasting economic diversity to Ward 5. By using his business startup experience, Cedric will recruit and retain new companies to the ward. Moreover, Cedric has the ability to connect these employers with Ward 5 job seekers via workforce development and training sessions.
At City Hall, he will work hand-in-hand with these new companies and implement a small business loan program. In turn, this will help sustain them through relocation and early operations. Finally, Cedric will establish a City Initiative to guarantee preferences for companies that choose Las Vegas as their home. The ultimate goal of Cedric's Economic Development is the creation of thousands of well-paying, sustainable jobs for Ward 5.
Ward 5 is made up of a diverse array of neighborhoods and planned developments. Cedric Crear has the proven leadership and long-standing relationships to ensure our ward doesn’t get left behind in building and enhancing infrastructure. Never again will Ward 5 be an afterthought in Las Vegas’ comprehensive plan to build and maintain our roadways, develop our park system and upgrade our water works.

Cedric Crear has called Ward 5 home his entire life. His parents were among the Community’s earliest civic leaders and they taught Cedric about the responsibility to give back. Cedric Crear and the people of Ward 5 share the common values of hard work, loyalty, honesty, community pride and hope for the future. Cedric will take these core values to City Hall – and he will never let us down.
