New Chief of Staff for NIGC

The National Indian Gaming Commission announced Paxton Myers as the new chief of staff last month. As the former Native American affairs adviser to Congressman Dale Kildee, Myers helped liaise between Congress and the Native American community for years.

“Paxton brings a diverse and practical background with him to the NIGC,” NIGC Chairwoman Tracie Stevens said. “His experience on Capitol Hill coupled with his previous tribal government and gaming operations work will greatly benefit the NIGC. We look forward to Paxton joining the commission and welcome him to the team.”

Myers’ résumé also includes work with both a tribal government and tribal gaming operation from 2000 to 2009. He is a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of Native America.
