Governor Sisolak announces appointments for the months of July and August

Carson City, NV - September 07, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced appointments made to State of Nevada boards, commissions, and agencies during the months of July and August.

Additionally, progress has been made toward completing appointments to the Mining Oversight and Accountability Commission (MOAC). The Governor intends to appoint Jerry Pfarr and Anthony Ruiz to his seats, and plans to appoint Jose Witt and Pamella Harrington, who were put forward as recommendations by the Speaker of the Assembly. Finally, the Governor plans to appoint Melissa Clary, who was recommended by Majority Leader Cannizzaro.

According to the statute governing the appointment process for MOAC, the Governor will be able to select the final two appointments after the Majority Leader and Minority Leader confer to ensure the final recommendations meet statutory requirements and submit those to the Governor for consideration.

The Governor has appointed hundreds of individuals since assuming office, and he encourages anyone who might be interested in serving Nevada and their community to review opportunities posted on the Governor’s WEBSITE, which is updated on an ongoing basis.
