The Nevada senator and the former Judge have been appointed by Governor Steve Sisolak.
US.- Nevada senator Ben Kieckhefer and former judge Jennifer Togliatti have been appointed to the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) by Governor Steve Sisolak.
Togliatti and Kieckhefer fill two vacant positions left open on the five-member NGC following Deborah Fuetsch’s resignation and John Moran Jr’s departure. Commission members serve four-year terms in a part-time capacity.
In a statement, Governor Sisolak said that Togliatti and Kieckhefer were more than qualified for the positions and that he was delighted for them to continue their service to the state of Nevada by joining the board of the Nevada Gaming Commission. The next meeting of the NGC is scheduled for October 28.
Togliatti was a judge on the Eighth Judicial District Court in Clark County, appointed by former Governor Kenny Guinn in 2002. She previously worked in the Clark County District Attorney’s Office and served as a justice of the peace with the Las Vegas Justice Court.
Kieckhefer was first elected to the state Senate in 2010 and was termed out of his legislative seat. He announced his resignation from the legislature last week.
