Local Assemblyman, James Oscarson, Nevada Assembly 36
Long-time Nevada resident, family man, and hospital executive, James Oscarson currently serves as Director of Government Relations at Desert View Hospital in Pahrump, Nevada.
“My door is always open to constituents,” Oscarson said. “My primary objective is to serve the people of Nevada and District 36, and to represent them as their legislator in state government.”
James Oscarson moved to Nevada in 1979 and has resided in Pahrump, Las Vegas and Logandale. He and his wife, Rebecca, have raised their three children and seven grandchildren here in Nevada.
Prior to accepting his current position at Desert View Hospital, Oscarson worked for health care organizations Managed Care Consultants and Humana. He was also a nurse and owned a small business.
Oscarson previously served as President of the Nevada State Board of Podiatry for three years. With a strong background in health care, Oscarson will bring a fresh perspective to the legislature and protect quality health care for rural residents particularly in the youth and senior communities.
“Health care continues to be a major issue at the federal, state, and local levels,” Oscarson said. “One of my top priorities is ensuring that the rural residents in District 36 have access to quality, affordable health care.”
Oscarson also sits on the board for the Southern Nevada Immunization Coalition, the Nye Communities Coalition and is a committee chairman for the Career and Technical Committee for Pahrump Valley High School.
After a successful first-term in Carson City, Oscarson envisions a bright future for Nye county, District 36, and the surrounding region.
District 36 includes Nye County, most of Lincoln County, and rural parts of Clark County. Oscarson will be seeking a second term as Nevada State Assemblyman in 2014.
