Former Nevada Casino Exec Joins Gaming  Commission

Joe Brown, who joined the Nevada Gaming Commission in 2008, has officially resigned from the five-member commission for personal reasons. Brown said he will still practice in other areas of government affairs, administrative and business law.

Governor Brian Sandoval gave praise to Brown for his “wealth of knowledge” he brought to his work as a gaming regulator.

Brown’s vacant spot will be filled by

Michonne Ascuaga, former CEO of John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks. Ascuaga will complete the rest of Brown’s term, which ends next April. In a statement, Ascuaga said, “I have worked in gaming all of my life and am honored to be appointed to such a prestigious board.”

Sandoval also reappointed Patricia Mulroy to the commission for a four-year term.
