CARSON CITY – Gov. Brian Sandoval announced Wednesday the hiring of Kathryn Reynolds as general counsel, effective Aug. 28.

Reynolds is filling the vacancy created with the departure of Daniel Stewart in early August. She will serve as counsel to the governor and act as a primary liaison between the governor’s office and several Cabinet agencies, boards and commissions, with an annual salary of $101,495.

“Kathryn is an impressive lawyer with a wealth of experience that will benefit the office and our state,” Sandoval said in a statement. “She is a thoughtful and brilliant individual who understands Nevada law and our judiciary. She has worked behind the scenes on many of the most high profile cases deliberated in our state and I know this experience will be an important addition to the office.”
