Government-Mayor&CityCouncil- BioCoffinCouncilman Bob Coffin was elected to represent Ward 3 on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, and was sworn into office on Wednesday, July 6, 2011. Councilman Coffin has deep roots in downtown Las Vegas, having been a resident in and around Ward 3 for more than 60 years. He is now raising his family less than a mile from his boyhood home. 


Councilman Coffin’s commitment to the Southern Nevada can be seen through his decades of public service. He was first elected in 1982 to the Nevada Assembly, where he served for two terms. He continued his public service in the Nevada State Senate, where he served until 2011. During that period, he served on many influential committees as a ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee as well as chairman of the Taxation Committee. On these committees he fought to balance budgets and cut unnecessary government spending. Fiscal responsibility will continue to be a priority as he serves Ward 3 along with ensuring public safety, cleaning up older neighborhoods and bringing in new development.  

During his childhood in Las Vegas, Councilman Coffin developed a passion for two things – his Mexican-­American heritage and the sport of golf. His ancestral family emigrated to Southern California from Mexico, and he saw firsthand the discrimination his mother faced as a young woman. As such, the councilman has spent much of his career fighting this injustice. He has traveled to Central America to help children and families and has been an active member in the Latin Chamber of Commerce.   

He remained in Southern Nevada as a young man attending as Bishop Gorman High School and the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where he earned an accounting degree. He went on to serve his country in the United States Army and today has a successful insurance business. While concentrating on his studies, he also continued to focus on his favorite pastime, golf, and was named the Nevada Amateur Golf Champion at the age of 27.  

He has been recognized for his community service receiving dozens of awards during his career. Most recently, he was named Person of the Year by the Southern Nevada Chapter of the Professional Golfers Association and received the Charles Dick Medal of Honor Award from the United States National Guard. He has twice been honored by the Latin Chamber of Commerce with its Hispanic Citizen Award and Public Service Award. 

He continues his commitment to the public by serving on a number of boards and commissions including the Board of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame, Chief Local Elected Officials Consortium, Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial, Debt Management Commission, Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition and the Southern Nevada Water Authority.
