Carson City, NV - August 18, 2015
Governor Brian Sandoval today announced he has appointed Assemblywoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick to Clark County Commission District B, effective immediately. Kirkpatrick will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Commissioner Tom Collins for a term ending January 1, 2017.
“Throughout her tenure in the Nevada State Assembly, Marilyn Kirkpatrick earned a solid reputation for her in-depth policy knowledge and tremendous hard work. She built bipartisan relationships and her record of accomplishment serves as a constant reminder of how effective we can be when we work together,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “Marilyn will serve as an excellent member of the Clark County Commission and I am pleased she has agreed to serve in this new role. I would like to thank Commissioner Tom Collins for his service to our state and wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”
A native Nevadan, Marilyn Kirkpatrick has served in the Nevada State Assembly since the 2004 Special Session of the Nevada Legislature. Kirkpatrick‘s unmatched work ethic was on full display during the 2011 session where she chaired two major committees, Government Affairs, and Taxation. In 2013 Marilyn was elected by her colleagues to serve as the Speaker of the Assembly. During the 2015 session Marilyn returned to the legislature as the Democratic leader of the Assembly again working with her colleagues and the Governor to pass a historic revenue package that put our state on the path to a New Nevada for the 21st century. She was a founder of the Southern Nevada Forum where she worked with the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, labor unions, and community activists to champion initiatives for southern Nevada.
