Governor Brian Sandoval tonight made the following statement after learning of the death of Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Chairman Wayne Burke:

“I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Chairman Wayne Burke today. Chairman Burke was a vocal advocate for Pyramid Lake and tribal issues, and I admired his leadership. Wayne Burke valiantly served his country in the Marine Corps and I was proud to call him a friend. A recent appointee to the Commission on Tourism, Chairman Burke’s voice will be missed. Kathleen and I extend our deepest sympathies to Chairman Burke's family and the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe.”
