Sisolak pledges to hire diverse administration as governor

Local News

Gov.-elect Steve Sisolak is pledging to install a diverse group of people in his administration when he takes office next week.

The Democrat told labor union supporters Friday that his administration will reflect Nevada’s diversity and is “not going to be a bunch of old white guys with gray hair like me.”

Sisolak stopped by the labor hall for theatrical stage workers in Las Vegas as he embarks on a send-off tour to Carson City, where he’ll be inaugurated on Monday.

The Las Vegas-based county commissioner will become Nevada’s first Democratic governor in about two decades.

Sisolak was scheduled to also make stops in Indian Springs, Beatty, Tonopah, Schurz and Yerington on Friday and Saturday.
