Morgan Named New Nevada Gaming Chairwoman

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak in January appointed Sandra Douglass Morgan as chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, replacing Becky Harris, who had been in the position for just one year after she replaced A.G. Burnett.

Morgan was appointed for a four-year term from January 28, 2019 to January 28, 2023.

Morgan was previously appointed to the Nevada Gaming Commission by then-Governor Brian Sandoval in April 2018. While serving as a commissioner, she was also the director of external affairs for AT&T Services, Inc. and was responsible for managing AT&T’s government and community affairs in Nevada.

Morgan previously served as the city attorney for the city of North Las Vegas, and was the first African-American city attorney in the state of Nevada. Prior to her public service with the city, she served as litigation attorney for one of the world’s largest gaming companies. For the Nevada Gaming Control Board, she is the second woman chair and the first African-American.
