Gov. Jim Gibbons on Friday named John T. Moran III to the State of Nevada Ethics Commission.
Moran replaces Caren Jenkins who resigned to run for district judge in Carson City.
Gibbons said Moran "has an exemplary record of service to the State of Nevada and Clark County."
He is a business and governmental affairs lawyer who also handles entertainment and sports clients. Moran received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Arizona State University and a Juris Doctorate degree from California Western School of Law. He was admitted to the Nevada Bar in 2000.
The Nevada State Ethics Commission is comprised of eight members. Four are appointed by the governor. The other four are appointed by the Legislature - two by the Assembly Speaker and two by the Senate Majority Leader.
The commission, currently headed by lawyer and former state senator Jim Kosinski, regulates and enforces ethics laws applied to public officers and employees.
