FIT Mentor featured in the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Before the age of 30, he was a state assemblyman, a Clark County commissioner and a U.S. House candidate.
Then, he was inmate #38621048.
For many, Dario Herrera’s story ended on Aug. 21, 2006, the day he was sentenced to 50 months in a federal prison camp for political corruption.
But speaking Friday in front of an audience of about 40 people, several with their own felony convictions, Herrera said the opposite was true.
“Your final chapter is not written because you did time or you’re unemployed,” he said.
Herrera was a guest speaker for the Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow’s weekly mentor meeting. The organization provides support, training and coaching to unemployed Las Vegas residents, with a focus on ex-convicts.
