Nevada State Treasurer Dan Schwartz

Schwartz received his undergraduate degree from Princeton, J.D. (law degree) from Boston University and his MBA from Columbia. He was elected Nevada State Treasurer in 2014 and took office in January 2015. Since taking office, he has revamped the state’s investment program and increased returns, launched a college savings program and brought unclaimed property within statutory guidelines.


The FRW’s Caring for America/Adopt-a-Soldier Program collects non-perishable foods for the Fernley Food Bank, along with donations of funds and care items for their adopted soldiers. The soldiers need single serving food items, personal care items and, most especially, cards and letters from home. The Literacy Committee collects new children’s books for the Ronald McDonald House and Renown Hospital’s Children’s Ward. All contributions for these important programs will be greatly appreciated. Financial contributions can be sent to the FRW at P. O. Box 412, Fernley, Nevada  89408.

Fernley Republican Women is a group of women (and men as associate members) who share similar conservative values and ideals, and who are dedicated to increasing the influence and effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through political education and active political participation.
