Carson City, NV - August 19, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak Issued the following statement in response to Nevada Lt. Governor Kate Marshall’s transition to the White House:
"While I am sad to see Nevada’s Lt. Governor Kate Marshall leave Nevada, I will forever remain grateful for her service and her steadfast leadership to the Silver State.
Kate has had an indelible impact on our great State. From expanding access to college savings plans for Nevada’s hard working-families during her service as State Treasurer to her leadership as our State’s Lt. Governor, Kate has always been a fighter for the people of Nevada. There is no doubt Nevada will benefit from having a leader in Washington D.C. who will continue to have the best interest in mind for the over 3 million people that call this State their home.
On behalf of the great State of Nevada, we thank Lt. Governor Kate Marshall for her service and we wish her nothing but the best in all of her new endeavors.”
Once a vacancy is officially declared in the office of Lieutenant Governor, the Governor has authority to appoint a person to that office. That person will serve the remainder of the unexpired term. The appointee must meet the State’s general constitutional qualifications (at least 25 years old, a two-year resident of Nevada, and a qualified elector). There is no specific legal deadline to make the appointment.
