CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Gaming Control Board member Mark
Clayton says he won't seek reappointment when his four-year term
expires at the end of December.
Clayton, named to the board in 2004 by former Gov. Kenny Guinn, said that with Gov. Jim Gibbons now in the office "it's appropriate for the governor to be able to appoint his person."
Clayton, who's subject to a year-long cooling off period which precludes him from working in the gambling industry, said he has
made no career decisions yet.
During his four years on the Control Board, Clayton developed a reputation as a hard-working and well-informed member of the panel
that serves as the enforcement arm of the Nevada Gaming Commission.
He headed efforts to restructure the board's technology division and also worked to update regulations governing new technology in casinos.
