South Asian Candidates Forum – Radhika P. Kunnel, Candidate for NV State Assembly District 2

The 2020 primary season has brought an unprecedented enthusiasm from the South-Asian American candidates for the local races.  There are six candidates from the South Asian community vying for various elected offices. Most of the candidates have hit the campaign trail before the COVID-19, with campaign signs, phone banking, and door-to-door voter contact. 

This publication has invited all the candidates to send their message to the growing and prosperous Southern Nevada South Asian community. The first in series is Radhika P. Kunnel who is running for an open NV State Assembly District 2 seat.

Radhika’s message to the community…

Hello, my name is  Radhika P. Kunnel, (J.D.), Ph.D. and I am a candidate for Nevada State Assembly District 2. I hope you and yours are doing well. As a member of our thriving Desi community in Las Vegas, I am sure we can agree that it’s time we have elected officials at the State level who represent our interests. Politics decide every single aspect of our lives, so why then do we not have a SINGLE elected official from our community representing us at the Nevada State Legislature? Don’t you think it would be great to have someone who truly understands what you and your family needs? Well, I for one think it’s about time we change the dynamics of our community. And that’s why I am running for the office.

I’m not running because I’m a politician. I’m running because I’m a scientist and a proud Desi. Given the recent developments about Coronavirus (COVID-19), I am convinced now more than ever that we need scientists in government who can help shape conversations. The reality is, we must participate in our civic duties by being part of the discussions at the table if we want our future generations to lead our communities. So, I am asking you to help me by bringing our issues and our future to the forefront of the conversation. Together, we can ensure an excellent prospect for our kids and grand kids. 

I sincerely ask your support as I continue on this journey. You can help in the following ways:

  • Help me talk to voters in my district 
  • Participate in letter-writing campaigns 
  • Help with social media 
  • Have your kids volunteer their time. I am happy to provide a letter of recommendation. 
  • VOTE

If you live in or near the Summerlin area, please consider voting for me 

  • Call your friends who live in my district and tell them to vote for me 
    • You will be receiving a ballot in the mail the 1st week of May. You can ONLY vote by mail for the primary elections this year. 
    • YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT TO VOTE FOR ME. to check your voter registration.  Last day to make your vote count is June 9th.

         Campaigns are expensive to run as it is, more so now. Our budget is about $15000 for marketing. So, please consider contributing – $10 or $1000 will be much appreciated. I appreciate the support received from several community members so far! 


Thank you for your time! #REPRESENTATIONMATTERS that’s why I ask you to #VOTEFORRPKUNNEL

Thank you!
