Nevada congressman Horsford works ‘undercover’ in Las Vegas for UPS – Review Journal

Horsford, as part of a constituent outreach effort, went “undercover” Friday morning to help a UPS driver deliver packages to the medical office building and the nearby Centennial Hills Hospital in his 4th Congressional District.

He said he wanted to get a from-the-ground perspective of the working man and woman in Las Vegas.

Horsford, a former state Senate majority leader, said his first job was cleaning out kennels at night. He also worked at a Pizza Hut, but nothing prepared him for the heavy-lifting and hustle involved in the UPS delivery job.

“I should have stretched more,” he joked at one point while helping distribute packages at the hospital.
