Meet Paula

The oldest of four children, Paula was born and raised in small town Montana. She had the good fortune to grow up in a place where no one locked their doors, you could walk everywhere, and you knew all your neighbors. It was a good life. 

Paula and her siblings were the children of working parents – A Science/History teacher, father, and a legal secretary, mother.  They modeled what hard work looked like and they valued education.  Paula had living grandparents on both sides while she grew up and understands the joy of knowing your roots. Her last name, POVILAITIS, is Lithuanian.

Paula relocated to Reno, Nevada in 2000 after graduate studies in California.  She has been a resident of Assembly 32 for eight years living in the North Valleys area of Reno. After a 30 year career in Education as an Art/Elementary teacher and a business owner, she is proudly stepping up to run for office. Paula has always understood her vocation to be one of service.  She wants to put the concept of “Public Servant” back into today’s politics.  She will bring SERVICE with a SMILE to the citizens of Nevada, especially those in the rurals.

Currently, Paula is a part time substitute teacher for Sierra Nevada Job Corps (a labor training center) which is in her District. She has been an advocate for labor in all her work. 

Paula also puts environmental concerns at the top of her priorities. She joined 400,000 concerned citizens in New York City for the People’s Climate March. She and her partner David are eager to go solar on their one acre property. They are busy raising a flock of chickens and working in their large organic garden.

Home Means Rural Nevada

Paula will be an advocate for the “RURAL LIFESTYLE” and the people who have chosen it.

She is kind and compassionate.  In the Nevada legislature you will find her to be a critical thinker and a person of common sense.

Paula is the LEADER you WANT for Assembly 32!
