More Sandoval appointments

Gov.-elect Brian Sandoval on Friday announced three more appointments. Christina Davis will become the Director of Constituent Services, based in Carson City, and Annalyn Bo Carrillo as Boards and Commissions Deputy, based in Las Vegas. He also announced Charles Harvey will remain as Nevada’s American Reinvestment and Recovery Act Director, a position that entails managing federal stimulus money coming to the state.

Here’s more from Sandoval’s transition team:

"Davis, who most recently worked for the Nevada Association of Counties, has also worked in the Douglas County Treasurer’s Office, the Manager’s Office for the City of Lake Havasu, AZ, the Nevada Attorney General’s office, and with the Legislative Counsel Bureau.

"Carrillo, a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, began working in the Governor’s office as an intern for Governor Kenny C. Guinn in 2003. Appointed as a staff member in Governor Gibbons’ office in 2007, Carrillo also served internships in the office of then-Attorney General Brian Sandoval and Attorney General Bruce Botelho of Alaska.

"Harvey joined the State of Nevada in September 2009. He served in the United States Air Force from 1985 through 1990 as a manager of aircrew logistics and data analysis and was nominated for airman of the year. Prior to joining state government, Harvey spent 13 years in Clark County government, working his way up to Assistant Director of the Clark County Recorder’s office."
