Vice President

Stephanie Demoleas

My career with the City of Las Vegas began in 1996 after completing a four-year international assignment with the United Nations. I was assigned to the mission In Somalia (UNOSOM) where I served as the Secretary to the commanding U.S. general. It was a privilege to be immersed in an environment with professionals that demonstrated amazing leadership. It confirmed how strong ethics and mutual respect can achieve advancement and unity even in the most austere circumstances.
After UNOSOM ended, I was transferred to Liberia where I accepted the position of Procurement Officer. There, I was responsible for negotiating contracts for services and supplies for mission staff throughout the country. These two assignments proved to be beneficial training for my service on the LVCEA board.
My career with the City of Las Vegas has included several departments. This has allowed me to experience a variety of management styles and policies and procedures. I understand that despite strong core staffing, hostile work environments can exist and sometimes thrive. Most of us have experienced dismissive management that are unwilling or incapable of leading. When members come to the CEA with questions or concerns, I can relate to the scenarios they are presenting, primarily because I have lived it.
This year, I was honored and delighted to be elected to the position of Vice-President after serving over two terms as Secretary. This privilege will allow me to continue representations and outreach in a full-time capacity.
I am proud to belong. Looking forward to a great year.

Niki Golomuh

Treasurer

Joe Sama

I am a Combination Inspector in Building & Safety and have been with the City since July 2018. I’ve previously served on the LVCEA board as a Trustee and in that role, I learned the job of reconciliation. As Trustee you are required on a rotational basis to verify monthly expenditures; this is a check on the Treasurer and their bookkeeping to verify all funds are accounted for. I can come to the Board as Treasurer and hit the ground running.
I honorably served in the Marine Corps Reserve for 8 years where I learned the true meaning of Esprit De Corps. For those who don’t know the meaning: “the common spirit existing in the members of a group and inspiring enthusiasm, devotion, and strong regard for the honor of the group”.
My career has spanned 30 years in organized labor, shop steward (representative) and negotiation committees. I would love the opportunity to serve on your Board once again and assist in protecting your and LVCEA’s best interests.
