Clark County Commissioners voted Tuesday to fill two vacancies in the state Senate created by the election last month.
Assemblyman Chris Brooks, who has served one term in the Nevada Assembly, will be moving to the upper chamber of the Legislature. Commissioners unanimously voted to appoint Brooks, a Democrat, to fill the Senate seat being vacated by state senator and County Commissioner-elect Tick Segerblom, also a Democrat. Brooks was nominated by Commissioner Larry Brown.
Commissioners must now appoint another Democrat to fill Brooks’ vacancy in the Assembly.
Brooks is married to Michele White, who was recently named executive director of Governor-elect Steve Sisolak’s transition team.
Commissioners also voted to appoint Dallas Harris to the seat vacated by Sen. Aaron Ford, who is Nevada’s Attorney General-elect.
Harris is a Green Valley High School grad who attended UNLV and George Washington University Law School. She is currently an administrative attorney with the Public Utilities Commission, according to her Linkedin page. Harris was nominated by Governor-elect Steve Sisolak, who will be leaving a vacancy on the County Commission that he will be called on to fill as governor.
