Burnett to Lead Nevada Gaming Board

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has named A.G. Burnett as chairman of the three-member state Gaming Control Board.

A member of the board since January 2011, Burnett will replace former Chairman Mark Lipparelli, who resigned last month. Burnett began his association with the board as an attorney working on legal and regulatory issues for the casino industry. He will be replaced on the board by Terry Johnson, director of the state Department of Business and Industry.

Before joining the state, Burnett was an associate in a Reno law firm that specialized in employment and commercial litigation.

Johnson now oversees a department made up of 14 regulatory agencies with 635 employees and a combined budget of $119 million. Johnson previously served as assistant director of the Clark County District Attorney’s Office from 2007 to 2011.
