Elisa was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her father is a self-made businessman who worked hard growing his trucking company. Her mother was born in Cuba and escaped the Castro dictatorship's oppression to the United States in 1962. Elisa is the oldest of six children, including two brothers and three sisters. She quickly learned the values of family and hard work as she helped her mother raise her siblings and began working part-time jobs from a young age. Elisa is now the mother of two wonderful children, Nicolas and Keira. Professionally, Elisa is currently the Owner of Silver State Hay Incorporated, a trucking/brokerage company that provides agricultural products to the South West region of the United States with overseas shipping contracts. The business has been in her family for over 35 years, and she has owned it for the last 13 years. The conservative values of the Republican Party are a perfect alignment with Elisa's strong family values, patriotic views, and love of our Constitution. Growing up, she listened to the stories from her grandparents and elders describing the atrocities committed under a communist social regime in Cuba. At an early age, she realized that our freedoms in this country should be cherished. The protection of life, the 2nd amendment, a strong military, business growth, national security, and less government intrusion are the principles that make her want to take a stance with other Hispanics across this country. For those reasons, Elisa became politically active and has served on the boards of many conservative organizations. Listed below are the current and former positions held by Ms. Elisa Slider: RNHA - Chairwoman America UP- President President Trump's Campaign Team - Latinos For Trump Advisory Board Member Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Texas - Advisor Republican National Hispanic Assembly (RNHA) - Former Vice Chairwoman Lexit Organization - Former Vice Chairwoman Bienvenido - Former Board Member
