Gov. Jim Gibbons has named retired Air Force General Ron Bath as his interim campaign manager.

Before his retirement as a major general, Bath was Air Force director of strategic planning, responsible for planning Air Force programs into the 21st Century. He has also been active in a number of civic and community activities including as Chairman of the Washoe County Regional Planning Commission, the Washoe Juvenile Probation Commission and Nevada Humane Society as well as on the board of the Reno Championship Air Races.

“Nevada needs the kind of leadership Governor Jim Gibbons stands for,” said Bath in accepting the appointment.

Gibbons said his campaign needs some one who understands leadership and strategy and that “Ron Bath fits that description perfectly.”
