CARSON CITY, NV - March 31, 2016

Governor Brian Sandoval today announced the appointment of Stan Olsen as Chairman of the Taxicab Authority, effective March 29, 2016. Olsen is filling a vacancy left with the resignation of Dennis Nolan who resigned earlier this year to relocate to Reno.

“Stan has served the State of Nevada in multiple arenas throughout his career and is a highly regarded public servant. His experience as a state senator and in law enforcement demonstrates his thoughtful approach to policy and sound judgment,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “I asked Stan to serve in this capacity because I believe he will bring stability, accountability, and demonstrated leadership to the Taxicab Authority. I am grateful that Stan has accepted this position and know he will do great work as Chairman of the Board.”

Governor Sandoval was also notified today of the resignation of Ileana Drobkin from the Taxicab Authority, effective March 31, 2016. Drobkin had served as the Board Chair prior to the appointment of Olsen but her term as a board member was not scheduled to expire until later this year. The Governor will appoint a replacement.
