Burnett, Reid reappointed to Gaming Control Board

Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett and Member Shawn Reid were reappointed to new four-year terms Tuesday by Gov. Brian Sandoval.

A spokeswoman for the governor confirmed the reappointments.

Burnett, 45, has headed the regulatory panel since 2012. He and Reid, 51, both joined the Control Board in 2011. Their terms were set to expire at the end of January.

“I am proud to continue serving as chairman of the Gaming Control Board,” Burnett said. “I look forward to continuing the board’s work as we regulate Nevada’s most important industry.”

The term for Board Member Terry Johnson expires in January 2016.

Prior to joining the Control Board, Burnett served as deputy chief of the agency’s corporate securities division and as a senior deputy attorney general in the gaming division. He was an associate in a Reno law firm.

Reid had been chief of Control Board’s Investigations Division before he was elevated to the three-person panel. Reid joined the agency in 1990 as an agent.

The Gaming Control Board is the state’s enforcement and investigative agency for the casino industry. The panel makes recommendations on matters to the Nevada Gaming Commission.

The three members are full-time state employees. Control board members earn $135,741 annually. The chairman earns $145,986.
