Burnett Takes Over For Mark Lipparelli
With Mark Lipparelli stepping down in September as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, it was up to Gov. Brian Sandoval to name his replacement. On Wednesday, Sandoval promoted current board member A.G. Burnett to take Lipparelli’s place.
The 43-year-old Burnett was formerly the deputy chief of the corporate securities division and served as the senior deputy attorney general in the gaming division since joining the board in January of 2011.
The three-person committee, responsible for regulating the state’s casino industry and reporting to the Nevada Gaming Commission, is rounded out by board member Shawn Reid and Terry Johnson, who will finish out the remainder of Lipparelli’s term.
Gaming Control Board members are appointed to four-year terms and earn $135,741 annually. The chairman earns $145,986.
