Terry Johnson to continue serving on Nevada Gaming Control Board in holdover capacity


Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced that Terry Johnson will remain on the state’s Gaming Control Board in a holdover capacity while Sisolak searches to appoint a new member to the three-person committee.

Johnson recently fulfilled his second four-year term on the NGCB. He was originally appointed in November 2012 and reappointed in 2017. His second term completed on Jan. 29, 2021.

“I am grateful that Terry Johnson will continue his service to the Nevada Gaming Control Board,” said Sisolak. “With the recent resignation of former Board Chair Sandra Douglass Morgan and the appointment of a new chair, J. Brin Gibson, and with the 81st Session of the Nevada Legislature recently kicking off, Board Member Johnson will provide continuity and longtime experience as the Gaming Control Board continues to work with the gaming industry to achieve widespread vaccination against COVID-19 while also managing their regulatory responsibilities and additional tasks associated with the current session. I thank Terry for his longtime contributions and for his willingness to provide continuity and his expertise to our great State.”

Sisolak did not indicate how lock it would take to find Johnson’s successor. Sisolak said the new board member's term will run for four years from the expiration of Johnson's term on Jan. 29.

Johnson was nominated to the NGCB by former Gov. Brian Sandoval. Prior to his appointment, Johnson served as director of the state Department of Business and Industry where he oversaw a combined operating budget of $119m.
