MEET MARY FATZINGER - CLARK COUNTY REPUBLICAN TREASURER
MEET BONNIE McDANIEL - CLARK COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMUNITY RELATIONS DIRECTOR
Bonnie McDaniel is a lifelong Nevada resident with a zest for life, passion for activism, and level of
energy matched by very few. Bonnie is a Registered Nurse, licensed and bonded travel agent, and
small business owner. She has lived in her home in Las Vegas for 54 years, and been a Republican
for 52 years.
Bonnie's earliest employment was arranged through her family at the Nevada Nuclear Test Site. After seeing many friends and family members contract strange and unusual diseases and illnesses, she became motivated as a private citizen to have the government accept responsibility and create a procedure to compensate these affected workers. Through years of government denials, smokescreens, and downright intimidation, Bonnie persevered, making many trips to Washington to testify as to the effects on people of exposure from the nuclear tests. With her testimony and the testimony of many others, the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act of 1990 was passed by the legislature. This bill has provided the process for uranium industry workers contracting lung cancer, fibrosis, silicosis or pneumoconiosis following their employment. To date, over 32,000 affected workers have been compensated under this bill.
Bonnie's passion for legislative activism remains strong. In the 2017 legislature, she attended most of the sessions via teleconference, and testified on approximately 500 bills. She has registered over 1000 voters, and been an election officer for over 20 years. Her plans to make the CCRP more visible include organizing parade entries, arranging booths at local fairs around town, attending Republican club functions and meetings, and evangelizing the benefits of joining the CCRP.
David Sajdak was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and moved to the Las Vegas Valley in 2001. He is
pleased to leave shoveling snow and liberal politics behind in Buffalo.
David learned political activism from his Grandfather Frank, who worked for 40 years in successful
New York Republican campaigns from Governor to Repulbican Leaders in both the Senate and
Assembly. Frank offered a young intern his first political job in 1973, and that intern became the
Chief of Staff of the Governor of New York. David is very versed in the methods of effective political
organizing, from his childhood attending various county fairs and lobster fests with his Grandfather to working on many New York Republican campaigns, including Attorney General, Governor, and Senate and Assembly races. Despite living in Las Vegas for the past 16 years, David is still the last campaign chairman for a successful Republican City Council seat in Buffalo, NY.
As a small business owner, David is very familiar with office location identification, location, and management, and looks forward to the day the CCRP moves into a dedicated office. Until then, he is pleased to offer his energy, experience, and leadership abilities to the Clark County Republican Party and Republican candidates.
David is married to Alex Sajdak, and they are raising their seven year old grandson.
Mary Fatizinger is a long time political activist who is pleased to bring both experience, dedication, and
detail management to the CCRP. Mary was employed by Bank of America for many years, before
becoming Treasurer of her family business. Mary has served as the Treasurer of the Las Vegas Valley
Tea Party for over five years.
Mary enjoys helping on many campaigns, and is a tireless phone caller and volunteer. Many of you
have experienced Mary's friendly greeting at the check-in table for CCRP meetings, where she is
a reliable volunteer. Mary's identification with the Republican Party and conservative values is lifelong, and she is honored to be a part of a strong team to lead the CCRP to greater accomplishments.
