Three women well-entrenched in Nevada’s political world will lead a transition advisory committee for Governor-elect Steve Sisolak.
Sisolak announced on Monday that Rep. Dina Titus will chair the committee, while Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve and former state Assemblywoman Barbara Buckley, who’s executive director of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, will serve as co-chairs. Their recruitment adds even more female leadership to his transition team.
Earlier this month, Sisolak hired Michelle White, a longtime political advisor in Nevada, as the executive director of his transition team. He also brought on Christina Amestoy and Francisco Morales as deputy directors. Both of them worked on his campaign.
