Governor Brian Sandoval announced today that Nevada Gaming Commission Chairman Pete Bernhard has decided not to seek reappointment and will resign effective June 30, 2014. The Governor has named Commissioner Tony Alamo, M.D., as incoming Chairman and has appointed Pat Mulroy to fill the open seat on the Commission.

“I respect the decision of Chairman Pete Bernhard to leave the Nevada Gaming Commission,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “Pete has served the Commission with great distinction for over 12 years, and his unmatched knowledge and expertise will be sorely missed."

Chairman Bernhard has served on the Gaming Commission since 2001.

“I have been honored to serve as Chair of the Gaming Commission and work with three Nevada Governors,” Chairman Bernhard said. “I am extremely pleased that Governor Sandoval is appointing Commissioner Alamo as Chair and Pat Mulroy as a new Commissioner.”

Incoming Chairman Tony Alamo has served on the Gaming Commission since May 2008.

“I want to thank Governor Sandoval who has entrusted in me the privilege and confidence to follow retiring Chairman Pete Bernhard,” said Alamo. “The Gaming Commission must continue to strive and maintain the highest level of integrity, predictability and stability.”

Pat Mulroy, former General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) will begin her term as Commissioner effective July 1, 2014.

“I am extremely humbled to be asked to join this highly regarded regulatory team,” Mulroy said. “I would like to thank Governor Sandoval for the trust he has placed with me and will strive to maintain the standard of integrity and diligence he expects from all his appointments.”
